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.
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|
|Group C||Group D|
