Third place at the League of Sharks
The CS:GO team participated in the League of Sharks at Parken in Copenhagen this weekend. We finished third after some close matches.
We had qualified for the League of Sharks by winning Fjerritslev Lan and provided some good performances at the weekend’s tournament. We reached the semifinals where unknown became our superior.
The tournament started promising when we beat Hobro Vikings 2-1. The semi-final against Unknown became a close affair, but unfortunately it ended in defeat. However, in the match for the third place, we took revenge for our recent defeat to Atlando in the C4 League and finished third with a 2-0 victory.
unknown continued to the final, where they lost to Brutalis.
The League of Sharks is known as one of the major tournaments in Denmark, as teams like dignitas have won it. With our third place we got part of the prize pool of a total of 40,000 kroner.
Rasmus ‘FaagaN’ Møller was quite pleased with the team’s performance:
– We gain more self-confidence after winning Fjerritslev Lan and now keep on playing well. We just have to say that unknown is a bit better than us at the moment. It’s nice to get our revenge against Atlando, FaagaN explains.
Now the last two games in the ESEA Main awaits and the team has performed well so far:
– We got 11 wins, which should be enough to qualify for the Playoffs, where 32 teams participate. It’s the fifth consecutive season that we participate and we’ve qualified for the playoffs three times, so this season we should do the same. It’s hard to predict the Playoffs, but we want to stay among the top eight teams and qualify for the Advanced tournament, the coach says.
The team is busy right now as we also participate in the Hungry Masters. Qualification is played on Wednesday, and FaagaN expects to qualify for the playoffs that counts 16 teams:
– We expect to qualify, and if we do so it’s the usual suspects from the Danish sub-top such as Atlando, Brutalis, Lyngby Vikings and unknown we have to defeat to get the overall victory, FaagaN explains.
