EnVyUs opens new CS: GO’s year with win at WESG

New year, New competitions. The first major Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event of 2017 went to the French side EnVyUs with a huge win and an even bigger prize.

The French squad meant business, as it went barrelled through surprise finalists Team Kinguin in two extremely one-sided maps. Following their decisive victory, EnVyUs took their place on the podium and will be leaving China $800,000 richer. However, few spectators could have imagined that Kinguin would be one of the teams competing in the finals of this massive $1.5 million event.

The day started out with an incredible upset, as Polish super-squad Virtus pro were eliminated from the event after a surprise defeat in the semifinals to their countrymen in Kinguin. The match was over in only two maps, in which Kinguin fought a close game against the favorites on Dust2, and closed the series out with a decisive 16-5 victory on Mirage.

Not even EnVyUs participation in the grand final was guaranteed, as the French squad fought a three-game series against Turkish representatives Space Soldiers. EnVyUs escaped elimination narrowly, and took the final map of the series, winning 16-14.

With the ELEAGUE Major just around the corner, EnVyUs will be riding a wave of momentum—while Virtus Pro will have to regroup and refocus.
