x6tence topped Insomnia Gaming Festival 54 by defeating fm-eSports 3-0 in the grand final (de_inferno 16-14, de_cache 16-3) for a first place prize of £5,000.

From April 3-6, teams have been fighting in the G2A.com Counter-Strike Challenge taking place throughout, which had £10,000 ($15,300) up for grabs split between the eight best teams.

One of the favourites, k1ck, managed to overcome Perilous Fury and Perilous Rage before falling short 0-2 to fm-eSports, who went on to the upper final.


loWel's x6tence storm through i54 without dropping a map

There, they were met by the Spaniards from x6tence due to defeating one of the bigger names in the tournament, Infused, but it was a one-sided match, as the three Brits with a Dane and a Netherlander only got 13 rounds in two maps.

They fell down to the consolidation final to meet k1ck, with whom they had big trouble, as they went to double mr5 overtime on the initial map, de_inferno, but in the end prevailed 2-0.

The grand final was a landslide as well with x6tence up 1-0 due to coming from the upper bracket, and as much as in the upper final, they didn't drop a map in the grand final either, defeating Brandon "weber" Weber and company despite having trouble on de_inferno.

The grand final was a landslide as well with x6tence up 1-0 due to coming from the upper bracket guess u dont know how to read
2015-04-06 00:47
they were 1-0 due to comming from upper bracket + inf + cache = 3-0 ...
2015-04-06 00:49
It still was 2-0 lol. That 1 was a different match
2015-04-06 01:50
+1 Very weird written article, they don't mention anything about it before the last paragraph, it sounds very weird if you'd like to quote the first sentences.

k1ck: *crying* why volvo are not invite us in major turnment!? foxJ best *cry some more*
2015-04-06 00:46
Why all the hate? K1CK is not a Tier1 team we all admit it. We never complained about valve inviting them to a major, we just said that there were some tourneys with Tier1 and Tier2 teams that they could and should get invited, even if it is just for some experience.
2015-04-06 01:41
k1ck is not a tier2 team either.
2015-04-06 01:58
imo they are both (kick and x6) some teams who are between top10 and top20 and able to suprise some better teams in bo1 groupstage-matches (just like penta)

Happy for the Spanish CS community but let's be honest, this LAN means nothing. Not a single top team was there. GG's

The price money was really good, they got $7500 for winning and $2000 for travel costs, which is very close to what teams got for coming 5-8 at ESL ONE Katowice. Very generous from the organisation.

2015-04-06 04:49
surprised a bit by how FM eSports played really well on certain maps. disappointed in how K1ck performed but u can't always play great i guess overall the well deserved winner was x6tence so congratz to them
2015-04-06 04:59
Nicely done x6; shoutout to fm-TOXiC for making the finals though. UK CS:GO isn't dead quite yet it seems

Well player x6tence, don't care how much people call our scene shit - x6tence were way more prepared and they are a very drilled team. They will cause some upsets vs the best teams shortly - especially on inferno. Gl guys and wp

+1 People are fast to call the UK scene shit and such but won't do a single thing to help it, at least the people who are actively competing in UK LAN's like yourself are trying to do something about it.
2015-04-06 14:47
In UK you have some decent players to make a good team, u should definetly try :P
2015-04-06 20:03
expected and nice result for x6, solid as a rock in this tourney Insomnia was full-covered in mediavida.com mediavida.com/foro/counterstrike/insomni..
2015-04-06 16:07
was impressed with FM regardless of there results vs x6, stick together and prove everybody wrong!
2015-04-06 16:48
Enjoyable event - a shame the final was streamed where we couldn't change the quality. You'd think a UK event would cater for it's own poor internet in rural areas... Good job ex6tence and fm!
2015-04-06 19:33
Twitch Partnerships enable quality change. They obviously didn't get that channel partnered, because the CS:GO stream was. Should really have streamed to the CS:GO stream instead.
2015-04-06 20:01
Yeah I don't know why they changed.. I watched the whole event over Friday and Saturday on my trustworthy medium quality, get to the final and couldn't watch it. It was a shame :/
2015-04-06 20:30
Should have watched through GOTV :P
2015-04-07 09:59
lmao fucking abysmal. You know the UK scene is in bad shape when you get stomped by a T3 team. Come on now.
