In the final stage of the intermediate tournament, we have an 8 team, best of 3, single elimination bracket. The 8 teams in this bracket consist of four teams dropped from the main tournament and four teams from the Intermediate Swiss Stage.
Throughout Saturday and Sunday, the intermediate tournament runs in parallel with the main tournament. This tournament is for teams that did not make it through to the playoffs of the main tournament.
It is time for insomnia64 Counter-Strike tournament to begin. Once again, the iSeries admin team has opted to go with the famous Swiss group stage, which means that teams will get a set amount of games where they have to fight it out to make it to the elimination bracket. With 44 teams entering (meaning a £6,250 prize pool), it should be an action packed weekend.
The time is nearly upon us, many gamers would have set off yesterday in anticipation for an exciting weekend ahead of them. Some of the CS:GO community will be believing they can be the “next big thing” whilst others will be tired of turning up to another iSeries, going through all the delays that usually happen, and wondering why they bothered. It’s a great mix of people at an event like this and one we are incredibly excited to cover this weekend.
