After a thrilling first season, the Elite Series: Counter-Strike is back with a vengeance! Last season eClub Brugge dominated both splits, coming out on top in the Spring and Summer Split, making them the big favourites for the Championship Finals. It was however LowLandLions that capped of our first season with a win in the Championship Finals.
Join the Force and Sector One had a more difficult season, but managed to save their skins by surviving the relegation games. Can they stay clear of the Promotion/Relegation games this year?
The first games of the new season will be played on 10 February, with the Spring Split lasting until 14 April. Matches will be played every Thursday. The Summer Split will be played between 14 July and 15 September.
During that time the teams will be fighting for a total prize pool of €15,000! Last year eClub Brugge took home the biggest chunk, but we have a feeling some teams will be trying to change that.
We wish all teams and players all the luck and may the best team win.
