StarLadder to host CS:GO Major in Berlin - Report

StarLadder will host the second Counter-Strike Major of 2019 in the German city of Berlin, according to a report from Dexerto.com.

The report comes just hours after StarLadder esports manager Alex "Alex007" Trushliako wrote on Twitter that the company was "about to host the next CS:GO Major" as he included his employer in the "tier 1 of tournament operation market".

In a quick follow-up tweet, however, the Ukrainian noted that he was merely referring to the upcoming StarSeries i-League event, which will be held in China, and blamed his lack of knowledge of the Counter-Strike scene for the misunderstanding.

StarSeries will reportedly host the second Major of 2019

HLTV.org knows that StarLadder is planning to open a studio in Berlin, an esports hub in Europe and home of the League of Legends European Championship (LEC), to stage the PUBG Europe League (PEL), featuring 16 teams.

If confirmed, this will represent StarLadder's first CS:GO Major and the fourth event of this stature to be held in Germany, after the 2014, 2015 and 2016 ESL One Cologne tournaments.

Understandable to host another major in germany. We always host the best major and a major in NA means visa issues for a few teams. #AufGehts

Why is that? We don't had a major in CIS yet. That kind of a tournament would be great to host in Moscow, Kiev or Saint Petersburg.

Great production. I just hope it will be in English :D Also rip NA majors.. all 3 majors in NA were great... Edit: apparently its not a major. We got jebaited. Because dota 2 majors are smaller than the international, the dude was talking abiut a PREMIER tournament, not an international type csgo event. This wont be a major.

What does in-house mean

That the casters heard by the crowd will be speaking English, not German, if i've understood it correctly.

Ah ok. That woukd be great. My only dislike for starladder events ever was that the crowd sounded muted because they had to have the English casters not the main casters so it felt more like an online event than a LAN wjth a big crowd because they needed russian casters on stage. Otherwise I like the production and they rarely have tech issues or delays.

Denmarks crowds were some of the worst ones I've seen. only whenever astralis did something they started to react. rest of the event was like there is an school shooter on the loose and you have to stay as quiet as possible

Not at all. That was only in the final you dumbass.. Did you even watch the fucking events? Ofcourse they are cheering heavely on their home team. Just like every other fucking country does. What about the Major in Boston?? Or Cologne??? Or Any where else... Its the same..

The polish crowd was fucking insane whenever something happened. and yes, i watched most games and the same goes for USA. Their crowd sucks almost as much. Cologne crowd was really good though and they were hyped a lot. so no sure where the fuck you are going. denmark is an awful place for an event
2019-02-07 19:05
there shouldnt be any major in fan baised crownds usa/denmark/ukraine i remember navi - astralis game in blast when shitty crowd hype device 1 kill and fully silenced when navi made amazing retake 2v4 in 1 sec 4 kills, same goes for ukraine crowd even that i want starladder to be in CIS but they will be baised on navi so much

Actually during the olympics we didn't have many problems because a lot was invested in security. That video was recorded before the olympics What I mean is that Brazil (especially Rio and SP) hosts a lot of important events and we could easily host a major as well

‘The majors have to be hosted where they have good teams.’ I’m sorry but ELEAGUE Atlanta no American team even made it out of groups, let alone only one team actually qualifying.

wth? starladder in Germany? why not in ukraine or russia?
2019-02-07 20:08
CIS players would have trouble travelling there due to the conflict between thr two countries
2019-02-07 20:57
lol, no, cis players had no troubles attending the previous tournaments in Kiev as far as i know
2019-02-07 23:03

there are no real tournament orgs from France. Berlin is a big "esports hub". But it's still pretty disappointing. The Paris la Défense Arena is HUGE (40 000 seats), but it must be pretty costly and ambitious to host there as well. Maybe in a distant future, in which CS:GO will be much bigger (hopefully), the biggest arena in Europe would be interesting to use.
2019-02-08 01:57
but do you really think they would fill 40000 seats?
2019-02-08 10:53
Rip viewers. Starladder has always the lowest amount of viewers in big tournaments.

Gonna go for sure. Cologne was always hella epic especially when it was a major, can’t wait to see what a Berlin major is like since the city is awesome.
