CS:GO 2016 Majors - MLG Columbus

MLG COLUMBUS

MLG Columbus started on tuesday kicking off the 2016 season and sporting the biggest purse for a CS:GO tourney ever, $1m. Though it appears there will also be a 1.5m tourney later this year, further pushing the record.

Group stages are closing today, and my boys over in Faze just got knocked out because Liquid had the gall to beat Fnatic in a BO1 and knock them into Faze's bracket. Overall great tourney so far, had a game yesterday hit 5x overtime, final score 29-31.

Got two twitch accounts each hooked up to my main account and my Nopples alt for double case drops B] suck it, Ian.

Who you rooting for? Get any case drops? Why does Cloud9 suck?

I really wanna see Luminosity win it all! They're my favorite team. I haven't been watching though which is unusual. I have just been so busy with exams this week and work. Come tomorrow afternoon I will def be tuning in.

THAT LIQUID V. CLG MATCH WAS THE DOPEST SHIT.
S1MPLE WAS PLAYING LIKE A FUCKING LUNATIC.
Watch these fucking plays this quarterfinal was ludicrous.

Also of course the NA crowd was very welcoming to Fnatics defeat in the quarters.

The majors are the biggest events of the year, CSGO doesn't have an 'International' but rather several major tournaments through the year hosted by different organizations and supported by Valve. The one happening right now is hosted by MLG and is taking place in Columbus, Ohio which is nice because the Majors are usually in Europe. Definitely seeingsome home field advantage for the NA teams this time around.

Virtus.Pro (Poland) is playing Luminosity Gaming (Brazil) right now and it's a solid match next up is NaVi vs. Astralis (former TSM players gone solo) and it should be a good one, the most exciting games left though would probably be the winner of VP/LG taking on Liquid as the third and final match today, as well as the final tomorrow. I'm rooting for Liquid to take it all, you can click on a bunch of the clips I posted above to see why, they've been absolutely insane this time around which no one expected.

Apart from the Majors there's plenty of league matches that happen throughout the year, if you find a team you like it can be fun to see them play in the lower leagues and can be a bit exciting if you choose to put a small bet on CSGOlounge, even a 20 cent skin bet can up the excitement a bit though chances are you'll lose it, heh.

There's usually two ESL One tourneys a year (Katowice, Poland & Cologne, Germany) as well as a Dreamhack tourney in the Winter. Those are going to be the big ones to watch, though obviously the MLG one right now is another one to watch, $1m prize pool and all.

Message me on steam if you want any background on the more well known teams, there's lots of fresh faces on these teams but some of these guys have been playing since the early 1.6 days.
