January 26, - EST. Natus Vincere 2. QB Fire 0. G2 Esports 0. ELeague confirmed that the second season will once again use CS:GO. The second season strayed away from the first season's format.
Instead, it reflected the format of that of a Valve -sponsored CS:GO major, such as MLG Columbus or ESL One Cologne The season will feature open and closed qualifiers, double elimination group stages, and—like last season—a Playoffs.
The second season began on October 21, The eight teams in the playoffs were the group winners— mousesports , Virtus. The finals pitted Astralis, which defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas and SK Gaming, and OpTic Gaming, which defeated mousesports and FaZe Clan.
In the end, OpTic Gaming defeated Astralis, two games to one, to win season two of ELeague. For the third season, ELeague invited thirty-two players from around the world to compete in this tournament.
Sixteen of the players were invited based on their Capcom Pro Tour results and the other sixteen received invites from Capcom.
The fourth season of ELeague returned to competitive play in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Initially, twelve teams were invited to the competition based on previous ELeague results.
Another four teams would have to qualify in their respective regional qualifiers. However, Season 2 champion OpTic Gaming only kept one of its five players, as stanislaw moved to Team Liquid shortly after winning the Season 2 title, tarik and RUSH were transferred to Cloud9, and NAF was moved to the backup position and then later joined Renegades , leaving mixwell as the only remaining member of the squad.
OpTic later brought in four Europeans to fill up its lineup. Replacing the majority of the lineup would thus disqualify the team based on the ELeague ruleset.
A third team from the Americas qualifier, which would later be Renegades, took its spot in the tournament.
The playoffs pitted the group winners— FaZe Clan , North , Cloud9 , and Astralis —and the group runners-up— G2 Esports , Fnatic , Team EnVyUs , and Heroic.
Astralis defeated Fnatic and Cloud9 to reach the finals and FaZe Clan defeated Team EnVyUs and North on its path to the finals. Astralis kept its same lineup as it had when it won the ELeague Major while FaZe Clan brought in its new superteam and had not lost a map on LAN since losing to Gambit Esports at DreamHack Masters Malmö In the last day of the ELeague Major: Boston , host Richard Lewis announced that a new Premier season of ELeague would debut on July 21, On September 27, , Valve announced the tenth major in CS:GO and the first major of the ELeague Major , also known as ELeague Atlanta ELeague Major took place from January 22 to 29, making it the longest-running major with eight days.
Previous majors lasted three to six days. Like previous majors, eight teams received an automatic bid based on their top eight placement at the previous major, ESL One Cologne , and another eight teams qualify through the Major Qualifier.
The group stage format differed completely from previous majors, as the major would use a team Swiss system rather than the four group GSL system.
The top eight teams in this major were Natus Vincere , Virtus. MTG Arena APRIL 22 - MAY 27, FIFA 20 CUP STAGE IV FEB 21 - 23, ELEAGUE Boston Major January 26 - 28, Home Schedule Standings Teams Gallery.

They had maintained Legend status with Fnatic prior to transferring to GODSENT. The major kicked off with Gambit Gaming against North.
The game went to Cobblestone as Gambit's new in-game leader Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko made the team a threat on the map and it showed as North's second half faltered.
Everyone on Gambit helped out, including 19 kills each from Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev and Rustem "mou" Telepov. North's star players had limited impact as Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke only had 15 and Emil "Magisk" Reif had The second game featured the most decorated CS:GO team Fnatic against G2 Esports.

Natus Vincere Na'Vi had major struggles coming into the tournament, but this match against mousesports proved otherwise as the CIS team completely dominated the Germans, especially after a halftime lead.
Team Liquid vs. Team EnVyUs proved to be a thriller. With EnVyUs up and in a 5 vs. Vincent "Happy" Cervoni killed Spencer "Hiko" Martin and then was traded out by Josh "jdm64" Marzano.
The last two EnVyUs players were holding the bomb in place so jdm64 could not get it, but a flashbang followed by a kill onto Kenny "kennyS" Schrub through the edge of another box and then a kill onto a midair Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt finished the 1 vs.
Liquid sent the game into overtime, but EnVyUs was able to finally clean up in triple overtime. Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski had the most kills with 48, but NBK-'s 42 and kennyS's 37 helped push the one time major champions to victory.

Philip "aizy" Aistrup struggled compared to the rest of his team. Two Legends went up in the next match. The runners-up of the last major showed more resilience in the last round as the Americans barely took it over the edge.
ELiGE continued strong with 37 kills, but Nicholas "nitr0" Cannella only had 8 kills. Yegor "markeloff" Markelov had 26 kills for FlipSid3, but Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen had a mere 12 at the bottom.
After North dominated from round five to round fourteen, Fnatic took control the rest of the game as it only allowed three rounds in the second half.
The world's number one and number two came up in the draw. As expected, the match was close, but it was Astralis to take the win. RUSH lead his team with 22, but the closest player to him was Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz with 15 as the rest of OpTic struggled.
Gambit had a relatively easy time with GODSENT as the lead at the half accumulated into a victory. AdreN and mou lead their team once again, but Mikhail "Dosia" Stolyarov also stepped up with 20 kills.
Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, the highest rated player of all time at majors, lead his team with 19 kills, but JW and Markus "pronax" Wallsten only had 12 kills each.
The last match of day 2 was the best team in Poland against the best team in France. In a hotly contested match, VP came out on top. The veteran Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas had 30 kills and Snax had Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro did well with 27 kills, but the rest of his team did not, including Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux with just Day 3 started with Fnatic and mousesports.
After mousesports took the lead at the half, the Swedish powerhouse completely stopped mousesports's offense and only allowed two rounds.
NiKo had 22 kills to lead mousesports. EnVyUs easily took care of GODSENT as the Swedes never showed up in the match. North finally got a win on the board, but it had to be an overtime win against HellRaiser.

Natus Vincere and Virtus. These two teams would face an opponent from the pool of Astralis, FaZe Clan, and North. Natus Vincere was paired with Astralis and Virtus.
From the pool of Gambit Gaming, Fnatic, and SK Gaming, two teams were randomly selected and those teams would be Gambit and Fnatic.
The remaining two teams, SK Gaming and FaZe Clan, were paired together. The first game of the playoffs in the Fox Theatre pitted Natus Vincere and Astralis against each other.
Natus Vincere Na'Vi was unequivocally the strongest team in the group stage, defeating each team by at least ten rounds, including the considered world's number three team SK Gaming.
Na'Vi rifler flamie had the highest Average Damage per Round ADR out of any player. The flawless group stage surprised many as Na'Vi was struggling a lot coming into the tournament, including some early group stage exits in other tournaments since winning ESL One New York Meanwhile, Astralis, who was considered to be the world's number one team coming into the major, struggled in the group stage, especially after GODSENT upset Astralis in the first round.
Astralis bounced back to win games against OpTic Gaming and G2 Esports, but then fell to SK Gaming in the fourth round, putting the team on the brink of elimination.
However, Astralis easily defeated ESL One Cologne 's runners-up Team Liquid on Mirage in the last round to make the playoffs.
The first map on Astralis's map choice, Overpass, was a complete blowout by the Danish team. Astralis took a convincing halftime lead.
While Na'Vi closed the gap to , Astralis took the last three rounds to take the first map. Na'Vi's star players GuardiaN and s1mple struggled throughout the map, with only 11 and 10 kills, respectively.
The second map on Mirage, Na'Vi's map choice, was a much closer game. Na'Vi took a strong lead going into the 11th round.
However, Astralis came back and won the last five rounds of the half to bring the game to a respectable score line of Eventually, the game was tied Astralis took a lead late into the game and was two rounds away from making the semifinals, but Na'Vi tied the score back at 14 a piece heading into the last two rounds of regulation.
In a crucial moment in round 29, Astralis had a man advantage with 25 seconds left in the round. Kjaerbye was planting the bomb with 5 seconds left, the approximate time needed to plant the bomb, but s1mple came in with 3 seconds left and killed Kjaerbye before the bomb could be planted, resulting in the time running out and a round to Na'Vi.
In round 30, Na'Vi had a man advantage and Astralis player Xyp9x had to clutch the round with the bomb planted to send the game into overtime.
However, Na'Vi in game leader seized and Edward won the round before Xyp9x would kill either player, giving the round and map to Na'Vi.
After struggling on Overpass, GuardiaN and s1mple delivered for their team, with 26 and 27 kills, respectively. Both teams are considered to be very strong on Dust II, the final map of the series.
Na'Vi took a slim lead into halftime. While the first half was virtually even, the second half seemed to be all Astralis, as Na'Vi could only get two rounds in the second half.
Once again, dev1ce topped the scoreboard with 26 kills. Astralis's win on Dust II would mean it would face either Gambit Gaming or Fnatic.
Gambit Gaming made some major changes to its roster by acquiring Zeus from Na'Vi and being loaned HObbit from Tengri. Under Zeus's leadership, the Gambit roster unexpectedly made it out of the group stage, despite placing top eight at the previous major.
The team defeated a top five team in North and GODSENT, which had just beaten tournament favorites Astralis before falling to Virtus. However, in the fourth round, Gambit defeated FaZe Clan behind a stellar performance from Dauren 'AdreN' Kystaubayev.
Fnatic, formerly the world's number one team, holds the most major titles with three and is one of two teams to win two majors in a row along to SK Gaming.
Fnatic made some drastic changes with the departures of flusha and JW to GODSENT. In the group stage, the team suffered a loss to G2 Esports but then bounced back to win the next three games to move on to the playoffs, including the deciding game on Cobblestone against Team EnVyUs, The first map of the series on Cache seemed good for Gambit at the very beginning after winning the first round, the pistol round.
However, Fnatic bounced right back and would take a lead before Gambit would take a third round. The score would be a Fnatic lead at halftime, a respectable scoreline for Gambit.
Gambit once again won the pistol round but then against lost the following round. Fnatic never looked back and would go on to win the map Despite AdreN having 22 kills for Gambit, his team could not pull off a win as Fnatic's twist would equal AdreN in kills.
Zeus and Dosia struggled as both had under ten kills. On Gambit's map, Overpass, Zeus and company would answer right back.
Gambit would lead the charge behind HObbit's 20 kills and took a halftime score. Gambit would easily win the next four rounds to take a convincing win going into the third map.
KRiMZ lead the way for Fnatic with 15 kills but all but one Gambit player had more kills than him by the end of the map. The third map appeared to be Fnatic's map, as the players took an lead before Gambit would even get its first round on the board.
However, Gambit would bite back and bring the score at the half back to a respectable deficit, despite being on the more favored side of the map in the first half.
However, Gambit struggled immensely in the second half, despite mou 20 kills in the game. Gambit squeezed out one round while Fnatic ran over Zeus's squad and took a victory and ono to its way to a semifinals date against Astralis.
Once again, Dosia and Zeus had fewer than ten kills and all but mou on the Gambit roster had a positive kill to death differential.
The team also includes NEO, who is considered to be one of the greatest CS 1. North had just left Team Dignitas after mutually parting ways after the major qualifier and then were picked up by top Danish football soccer club F.
