Adrenaline Cyber League is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competition like no other. This tournament will be played during one day only, and it will be played on June 18th. Besides that, this event will be reserved only for the teams from the CIS region. This is somewhat understandable as the event will be held in Moscow.
Lately, CS:GO competitions have been lifted to a new level. With Adrenaline Cyber League 2017 being announced, that fact has been confirmed once again. This event will feature only four teams from CIS region. Those teams will be Na’Vi, Hellraisers, Virtus.pro and Flipside.
Adrenaline Cyber League Participants
As it was mentioned, only four teams will have the opportunity to fight for the first prize of $65,000 of the $100,000 prize pool. Last year, Gambit Esports won the title, but this year, the organizers did not invite them. This might be an indication of the tournament rule that the champion will not be able to defend their title.
Looking at the list of teams that will be playing Adrenaline Cyber League 2017, we cannot but to think that all four teams have been in a very bad place recently. Despite that, many expect this event to be a very exciting showdown of the best CS:GO teams that CIS region can offer at this moment.
Out of those four teams, it seems that Virtus.pro and Na’Vi will fight the biggest fight for the title. Both teams are having a hard time when it comes to the results as neither team is able to perform well. Despite that, many tip Virtus.pro for the win at this tournament.
Considering how they have been playing recently, that seems very unrealistic. However, since all other teams are also in a very bad form, Virtus.pro might actually take the trophy. Two other teams, Hellraisers and Flipside, are not among the biggest favorites. That said, Hellraisers had some good results, and if any team might surprise us, it will be them.
Adrenaline Cyber League 2017 Format
The organizers have released a statement that announced the event. The statement included names of the teams that will participate in the tournament. That statement, however, did not contain any details about the format of the competition or the schedule of play.
Considering that there are only four teams in the event and that the competition will be over in just one day, we believe that teams will be playing semi-final matches from the very start. Each team that gets defeated in those semi-final games will receive $5,000. The runner-up at this event will go home with the check for $25,000, while the winner of the competition will be getting $65,000.
Adrenaline Cyber League: A Unique Competition
Adrenaline Cyber League will be a fascinating competition with a unique style and the format which is not seen that often in the CS:GO world. Tickets for this event are already on sale, and since the matches will be played in the venue in which EPICENTER: Moscow 2016 was held, the atmosphere at the tournament will be more than electrifying.
For some of the teams, like Virtus.pro, this event will be one of the last opportunities for them to return among the serious contenders for the trophies as they have been ruining everything that they did during the last year with their performances this year.
