MCS Open Season 1 Finals in January

MCS Open Season 1 Finals will be held on January 9-10 in Moscow with three invited teams, as well as 29 from qualifiers, competing for a $10,000 prize purse.

MCS Open Season one started at the end of October, with the final online qualifier finishing just days ago, thus confirming the entire thirty-two team participant list.

The organizers decided to invite Sergey "⁠Fox⁠" Stolyarov's Moscow Five, Andrey "⁠B1ad3⁠" Gorodenskiy's dAT, as well as the usual ex-CIS region mixteam, Nostalgie.


ANGE1 will represent Nostalgie at MCS Open Finals 

Representing Nostalgie in Moscow will be Denis "⁠seized⁠" Kostin, Kirill "⁠ANGE1⁠" Karasiow, Emil "⁠kUcheR⁠" Akhundov and Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev, and Alexey "⁠OverDrive⁠" Birukov.

Among the twenty-nine teams qualified for the MCS Open Season 1 Finals are Kazakhstan's CheckSix, as well as twenty-eight Russian teams:

CIS Nostalgie CIS dAT Russia Moscow Five Kazakhstan CheckSix Russia akatsuki

Russia -CCM- Russia twentySeven Russia Onlineri Russia VERITAS Russia EXPLODERS

Three additional teams are not yet confirmed. These teams will be competing for a $10,000 prize purse, to be split among the top eight finishers as follows:

1. $5,000
2. $2,000
3. $1,000
4. $700
5-8. $350

MCS Open Season 1 Finals will be held on January 9-10 at Moscow Cyber Stadium, marketed as Europe's largest esports Arena with more than 2,500 square meters of space.
