Late into Saturday evening the first week of the Gfinity Elite Series season 2 came to an end, with the final match almost heading into a comeback for exceL eSports after a less than spectacular T side of Cache against the Swedish Epsilon eSports side. All in all, the four games went the way we predicted in our week 1 preview, with the scores mostly being in the right ball park. The exception of course being the win by Method over Team Prophecy, who managed to take a 7 round lead and deny the Bulgarians the crucial bonus. The three other losing sides all managed to secure in excess of ten rounds, meaning that they earned the point.
The debut game for the new season of the Gfinity elite series was between two of the top British teams, Team Infused and Endpoint. Both teams needed to take the first round win in order to put them in good standing before their second week match-ups, seeing Endpoint face off against last season’s best of British team exceL and Infused taking on the dominant Team EnVyUs.
The first play date for Counter-Strike in the second edition of the Gfinity elite series takes place tomorrow, with CS taking centre stage from 5:30pm to round up the first week of games. As hopefully the first of many previews, this week will likely be one of the hardest to predict. With none of the teams with consistent rosters facing off against each other, correctly calling the outcome of the games could be a tough ask.
