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’.
It quite public that Hearthstone has become one of the big players in the eSports. With more than 30M players it is loved by the casual comunity and pro/competitive players like me, ALX (@AlxShow) in OMNIS.
In this last days Blizzard has launched an announcement which is in the mouth of everyone as its application will change the game in a way we have never seen before.
For those who already knows other card games new formats and splitting the game in more game modes won’t be a new discovery. In this case Blizzard has called “Standard” their new child and it has enough features to become mainstream in the competitive scene. We could sum it up by saying that it will restrict the collections we can use cards from depending on the format we want to play. If you want to know more I have made this video for you to understand it in just one minute (the video is in Spanish, I recommend you to see it anyways as it is really visual, you will find the official announcement link in English below anyways).
For those who don’t understand Spanish or if just you want to check this info, here you have the official source.
