Best photos from the PGL Major Antwerp
Relish in all the memories of CS:GO's 17th Major.
Two weeks, hundreds of rounds and countless unforgettable moments later, the PGL Major Antwerp has finally come to an end, with FaZe cementing their name in history as the champions.
From the euphoria of success and the frustrations of defeat, here are some of the best photos from the PGL Major, captured by Josip "brcho" Brtan and Radosław "MAKKU" Makuch:
The Brazilian Last Dance
One of the standout storylines of the Major was Imperial's run, under Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's 'Last Dance' roster, with the support of an entire nation.
Making history and shattering dreams
It was a remarkable campaign for the competition's youngest squad...
... and a dream cut short for Bad News Eagles.
Even some of the scene's biggest names such as Liquid, G2, Outsiders, and Vitality failed to reach the playoffs.
The final showdown
As the smoke from the previous days cleared, only Natus Vincere and FaZe were left standing, about to lay it all on the line for the coveted Major Championship.
As the teams walked down the ramp, Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Finn "karrigan" Andersen bumped fists, and the stage was set.
FaZe's victory - all the emotions
61 thrilling rounds later, FaZe completed their journey at the Major, becoming the first international team to lift the trophy in the history of the competition.
It was all the more sweeter for Håvard "rain" Nygaard and karrigan, who came heartbreakingly close at the Boston Major in 2018, finally getting redemption this time around.
