CSGO.NET Cup 1 with $12,000+ prize pool

The first edition of the CSGO.NET Cup has already started, with 16 participants battling it out for a minimum of $12,000.

The tournament will see the competing sides split into four groups of four teams, who will face each other in double-elimination brackets. Spirit Academy and EnVyUs Academy opened up the action event earlier on Monday, with the former coming out on top by a 16-6 scoreline.

Tricked are one of the 16 participants

While the opening and the winners' matches will be played in a best-of-one format, the elimination and the deciders will consist of best-of-three series. The top two teams from each group will seal passage to the single-elimination, best-of-three playoffs.

Here is the group draw for CSGO.NET Cup 1:

Group A Group B
Russia Spirit Academy Russia Spirit
Romania Nexus Denmark Tricked
Russia 5balls Russia eL'quvet
France EnVyUs Academy Sweden Epsilon
Group C Group D
Belarus GoodJob Russia EPG

Very cool to see room for T4 and T5 teams on HLTV, they need more support than the big teams.
