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’.
