I watched most of it (the GF was too late for me) and it was awesome. The coverage was awesome and the casters great. First CSGO tourney I've watched and would watch again.

Some amazing plays happened too. Too bad Fnatic lost :(

Some of the plays in it were insanely good. I stayed up with friends until about 1am, but headed off before the final two maps played out but checking the replay it was down to the wire which is what I love to see.

I mean, this shot in particular was just mind blowing:

I've actually become a huge fan of esports lately thanks to Dota. I've started watching CSGO and Hearthstone tourneys. Can't get enough of it honestly. Looking forward to the next big CSGO tourney.

That game was good, there was some other really awesome plays too. Those players have amazing reflexes.
