Here are the results for Season Six of CS:GO ESL Pro League
CS: GO ESL Pro League Season Six in Denmark finishes up
After hot competition from the 5th to the 10th of December in Denmark, the 2017 ESL Pro League Season Six for Counter-Strike Global Offensive has wrapped up. This event is a part of the Intel Grand Slam Season 1 circuit and has a prize pool of US$750,000 up for grabs. Every CS: GO esports team wants a good start on the next Grand Slam season, and performing well here can help a team get ahead early.
The ESL Pro League works in a round-robin fashion, where two rounds are run with six teams in each group. The top team from each group then moves onto the semi-finals, and those who placed 2nd and 3rd in the groups go to the quarter-finals. This year the top of each grouping was FaZe Clan and SK Gaming, big hitters in the CS: GO scene.
In second place in each grouping was HellRaisers and OpTic Gaming, with Fnatic and Misfits in third place. The top two teams beat out these four teams in the quarterfinals with ease, finishing every match 2-0. This put SK Gaming and FaZe Clan into the grand finals together, while the other four teams fought to be ranked between 3rd and 6th place.
In the grand final SK Gaming dominated over FaZe Clan, with a score of 3-1, keeping FaZe down in each match. FaZe found themselves low on players quickly in each match-up as SK Gaming systematically broke down FaZe’s offence and defence attempts each time.
The top few teams each took away a substantial amount of prize money for their efforts. Even some of the lower ranked teams walked away with a fair amount of money too. The final results of the Pro League were:
1st: SK Gaming – US$225, 000
2nd: FaZe Clan – US$100,00
3rd: Fnatic – US$60,000
4th: Misfits – US$60,000
5th: OpTic Gaming – US$45,000
6th: HellRaisers – US$45,000
7th: Luminosity Gaming – US$40,000
8th: NRG Esports – US$40,000
9th: Astralis – US$35,000
10th: Ninjas in Pajamas – US$35,000
11th: Team Liquid – US$32,000
12th: North – US$32,000
With this win, SK Gaming sets themselves up for a strong start in 2018 for the whole of next season. For more news on CS:GO and esports check out our hub page for news and content.
