Entramos a OMNIS con muchas ganas de demostrar de lo que somos capaces. Estamos trabajando juntos a diario y todavía nos queda mucho por hacer. Nuestro objetivo a priori es alcanzar las primeras divisiones nacionales y jugar al mismo tiempo ligas como ESEA, ESL y cualquier qualifier interesante. Gracias a OMNIS por darnos esta oportunidad.
Mostradles vuestro amor!
One year more at Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice, best gamers return to achieve the great trophies of this competition. This event took place on March 4-6 at Spodek Arena, which has a 10.000 viewers capacity, who watched all the amazing games, enjoying the ESL event.
Not only could they win the first place trophy at IEM but also they could win a combined prize pool of $500.000.
We bring you a brief summary about all the competitions played there:
At IEM we could find the 32 best players in the World, it was surprising because we couldn´t watch a Korean final so we could enjoy a confrontation between Polt, Korean, without so many problems, and Snute, Norwegian.
Finally, Polt achieved the first place.
LEAGUE OF LEGENDS
After a group phase with some surprises, we got a semifinal played by Asian, North American and European teams. SK Telecom T1 won against Team SoloMid easily and Fnatic achieved to qualify beating Royal Never Give Up team.
In this way, SK telecom T1 played the grand final against Fnatic where we could watch the first two matches were equated but in the third one, Fnatic gave up in the 22nd minute of match.
COUNTER STRIKE:GLOBAL OFFENSIVE
We focus in quarter-finals where NaVi and Fnatic didn’t give any choice to Tempo Storm and Virtus.Pro, who played in their country.
So, NaVi played against Luminosity, Brazilian, who avenged their compatriots and in the other semifinal, we could fin Fnatic against Astralis, achieving the victory the first one, playing some matches until very late at night.
In this way, Fnatic won Luminosity in the grand final, thanks to Olofmeister and Flusha.
In this competition we had some good news because Spanish achieved a trophy thanks to Esteban “AKAWonder” Serrano, giving no choice to other compatriots like Doky and Espumito. He was in the final against SilverName, Russian, where he won three consecutive matches.
HEROES OF THE STORM
The North American team, Dignitas, achieved the victory 3-0 against mYinsanity, repeating what happened in the Hearthstone final, because he didn’t give any choice. NaVi started being a favorite team but then, they couldn´t qualify for the quarter-final, although it´s notable the way Francisco Antonio “GranPkt” Núñez Sorribas played.
IEM CHALLENGE KATOWICE
In the CSGO female tournament, WRTP won after being unbeatable because they didn’t lose any match. They played against CLG Red in the grand final, achieving as result 2-0.
These are the highlights of this eSport party, we hope we won’t have to wait too long until the next big event.

With the occasion of the Mobile World Congress 2016, the ESL (Electronic Sports League) organized an impressive tournament and invitational League Of Legends, Counter Strike and RainbowSix tournaments with the best national and European teams.
There were some of the most renowed teams attending the ‘ESL Expo Barcelona 2016’ for example, G2.Kinguin, Fnatic, Dignitas, Baskonia, The Penguins Mafia, gBots or Giants Underdoges.
League Of Legends
Named ‘ESL Masters of Spain’, we lived true battles in an LCS alike style, where eSports Baskonia won the trophy 0-2 against a Giants Underdoges who could do little against the relentless siege of the Basque team . Here we show the results of each game played during the weekend:
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
The Barcelona CS: GO Invitational was a huge success because of the mixture of international and local teams with the presence of two Spanish teams of great level, x6tence and gBots, due to the high level competitors they couldn’t make it out of the bottom of the scoreboard.
Fnatic won the stage being the clear winner of the ‘Barcelona Invitational in a final against Astralis.
They finished with two of the three ‘lives’ that every team started with at the beginning of the weekend.
El evento contaba con actividades sin necesidad de invitación en los que como no podía ser de otra forma, OMNIS dejó su sello. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tuvo un torneo abierto de la mano de Gigabyte en formato rey de la pista, o lo que es lo mismo, quien gana sigue y el que pierde, con todos los respetos, a su casa, la pareja que al final del evento continuara invicta se llevaba los premios y, como no, en este torneo hizó su aparición nuestro director Alesander ‘Alx’ Robleño (@alxshow), que tras la derrota de nuestros jugadores se vistió de paladín vengandolos y alzandose con la victoria junto a su compañero Miguel ‘Bladecito’ Gomez (@bladecitoLOL).
Rainbow Six | Siege
Finally gBots imposed their law since the beggining of the ‘Rainbow Six Siege’ tournament and won the prize, the other participants where overGame Telepizza, Newskill Infinity and sO-On, being this last the runner up.
Alongside the tournament, we could see amazing cosplays in a fun contest that had to Nidalee, Ashe, Olaf and many other champions LOL as participants.
We could also greet Ethieen, Ocelot and Chinceto77 also attended the ‘ESL Barcelona Expo 2016’.
The past 15th September one of the greatest updates of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive came up solving some bugs and creating new animations, among other changes.
About bugs, one of those which caused the biggest number of deaths has already been solved. How many times have we known where a player was because we could see his weapon trhough the wall?, this won’t happend again, because a piece of the weapon and of the player are hidden in the wall. This was also a bug that has been corrected two days later,in the last update.
Related to animations, player body and weapons animations have been improved to more accurately represent. Also, it added reverse-bone-merge animation support so weapon models can store and play independent animation on the player holding them and new physics motion to holstered attachment weapon locations.
Also, we can find hitboxes modifications, because the shared ones have been replaced with new capsule-based set, such as the animation and hitboxes are more realistic when the player is climbing the ladder, correcting the position of this in the head.
Another thing that has been noticed and talked about is the defuser links and multimeter that appear while player is defusing the bomb that previously didn’t appear.
On the other hand, some weapons have changed, like M4A1-S, that its price has been reduced, its armor penetration, its ROF and base spread has increased. Another change is the Zeus x27 reduced price to 100$ and it can’t be dropped and the Dual Berettas modifications as increased armor penetration and increased range modifier.
Lately, another noteworthy thing is that enemies can be reported for deliberately losing, for this reason some people will feel relieved because enemies could be banned.
Finally, two days after the first patch, another update has been published in which some bugs of previous update have been solved such as fixed flickering shadows, and it have included new animations, like adjusted blend on bomb plant animation and adjusted crouch animation rise and fall speed. And, of course, what people love, the new case, Shadow Case, that include 16 weapon skins, including a new knive design, completely different from the others.
