Astralis Victory At Mercedes Benz Arena In Berlin
Congratulation to Astralis, professional Counter Strike team, for winning the CS GO Major Championships in Berlin. The show was hosted by Starladder and despite some observing issues, few delays, it was a surprisingly good show.
Astralis is Danish organization. The team consists of:
- zonic (team coach)
Pick’ems Ruined, No Diamond For You
Yes, we know that 99% of players had Astralis to drop out at some point of the Champions stage, so it came as a big suprise that they have managed to pull it off and reach for the first place once again.
Berlin 2019 Coin came with challenges that needed to be completed to get Diamond, Gold, Silver or Bronze coin. Watching matches, playing the Pick’em game and completing missions like playing competitive games on selected maps, all of the 16 challenges were needed to upgrade Berlin 2019 Coin to Diamond. For the Gold Coin it was 12 challenges and only 8 for Silver one.
It seems like majority of players were choosing their Pick’ems for Team Liquid and Vitality to advance to finals. Both games were entertaining to watch, unfortunately Team Liquid was eliminated by Astralis and Vitality was beaten by AVANGAR.
