The final Insomnia LAN of the year has come to a close with the CS:GO Tournament taking centre stage at the NEC this weekend. With £7,500 prize money up for grabs, it was always going to be a thrilling encounter as insomnia61 came to round the year off.
The Group stages have concluded, and now it’s time for the Elimination Bracket. For the first time, in a very very long time at an iSeries event, we have finally got a big wish where 31 teams square up to each other and play in the Elimination Bracket. That means the top two from each group get promoted and one of the UK Masters Finalists get placed into the bracket.

This meant a lot of confusion and issues, and debates on whether to move back to Battlefy.
