ESL One New York viewer's guide

We have put together a comprehensive viewer's guide for ESL One New York, which is set to start on Thursday and run through the weekend.

ESL One New York will take place on September 26-29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, USA, where eight teams split into two groups will duke it out for the lion's share of a $200,000 prize pool and a victory counting towards the third season of the Intel Grand Slam.

Two GSL groups with four teams each will kick the event off, all matches being best-of-three. The tournament will then proceed to a four-team single-elimination best-of-three bracket, concluding in a best-of-five grand final. Before the grand final, there will be a show match showcasing the reworked version of Cache, currently not in the active map pool since the introduction of Vertigo.

Astralis will be in ESL One New York's Group B

Several top teams will be fighting for a spot on the stage at the Barclays Center. Group A will feature Liquid and ENCE, who will be joined by G2 and eUnited, while the Major-winning Astralis will headline Group B, joined by local side NRG, a revamped FaZe with Helvijs "broky" Saukants, and OpTic.

2019-09-24 18:36
wrong he is a freaking racist dude wake up
2019-09-24 20:00
All Brazil CSGO community seem to be worried about Thorin while they make excuses for a murderous homophobe. I think MIBR players must be too since they want to play with someone who openly says he will kill other pros. Dude Wake up

United States jew_cuck 
I don't know if you think calling me a monkey does anything, but it's not racist. You're just upset thorin shit on your entire country so you don't want him to work. You don't care about his analysis, which is good by the way.
2019-09-26 15:31

not crying just telling you that just because thorin took a shit on your country doesn't mean he shouldn't be hired you're the one crying about him being a racist because he pulled his pants down and shit right on your country making it somehow worse than it already is.
2019-09-27 17:18

in fact if you are still saying calling someone a monkey is racist then you've been being "racist" this entire time making you no better than thorin. its not racist though.

Why no Anders n Moses in Stadium? ESL braindead?
2019-09-24 17:25
Why do they think Henry > Anders smh my head
2019-09-24 17:29
I hate Henry so much lately, especially after Sado left him, he was carrying their duo
2019-09-24 17:33
I think Anders and moses are in both whereas henryG and machine only for the playoff
2019-09-24 17:48
Then they would be listed in both Cologne and Stadium... Use ur logic, they are clearly not in both
2019-09-24 17:55
Use ur imagination they maybe just didn t want To repeat And don t try To be the smartest when you type Cologne instead of groupe stage lol
2019-09-24 18:02

2019-09-24 17:25

Nice ESL, you gave Liquid an easy group you rigged shit. Don't tell me it's based on the ranking/seeding it's bullshit
2019-09-24 23:59
it literally was based on that doe, nothing else :D. They are rank 1 so naturally they get 4th highest rank to their group for instance which is ence, hence avoiding astralis and NRG...

I know but in the end one of the big teams is favored a lot... most events in MURICA are 8 team events which gives a tier A event vibe instead of S. No wonder Liquid got the grandslam when you see what kind of teams were in the US tournaments this year^^
