It’s time to focus our resources on events that take place online. For a long time we have been looking for the opportunity to cooperate with StarLadder in the CS:GO discipline, in which our partners have the strongest expertise and an impeccable reputation. After the good results of our League in Dota2, expressed in the interest of the audience and the number of views, the organization of the CS:GO tournament under its brand was just a matter of time. We are partners of the leading Esports clubs in the CIS, and it was logical for them to be the first to receive direct invitations to our tournament. I am glad that they responded and found an opportunity to participate. I also want to emphasize the fact that in such a tournament with a solid prize pool of $100 000 there is an opportunity for ambitious newcomers to try their fortune against recognized teams if they manage to qualify. Good luck to the participants. I’m sure that the viewers who stay home and thus help to resolve the situation in the world will enjoy our tournament
After the success of Major Berlin, the most prestigious tournament of the discipline, held by StarLadder, we wanted to realize our idea with regional leagues. Thanks to our partners, Parimatch, we have prepared an eventful and convenient match schedule for viewers and fans of teams from the CIS and Europe. And the impressive prize pool for an online league, will help attract the best teams
