Sunny Broadband CS:GO Tournament Day 1 Round Up

Counter-Strike

LAN events with tournaments like the Sunny Broadband CS:GO Tournament are very similar to actual sporting events, especially at the start. Everyone believes they can win, because all teams start on the same footing, with zero points and all the chances to push to greater heights. Whilst this isn’t the Counter-Strike Majors, this is still something for teams to get on board with and start their esport careers.

The seeds were announced, and teams knew roughly who they would face early on, and thus could make plans to quickly prepare for the tournament. The team leader briefing came around with a crowd of enthusiastic CS players all ready to take to the battleground known as Counter-Strike. The group stages are sometimes the straightforward parts of tournaments, with many stomps happening as the skill divisions are always so wide.
