Four teams left in 2017's first major CS:GO tournament will look to set the agenda for the game with a dominating finish in Atlanta this weekend.
Under the glare of the lights on the Fox Theater stage, European juggernauts are looking to unseat the Brazilians and return the game to a deathmatch between top European contenders.
Below you’ll find where and when you can catch all the weekends biggest events in competitive gaming. Let me know what you’ll be watching in the comments and if you think there’s something I missed.
The week-long ELEAGUE 2017 Major comes to a head today with the semifinals beginning around 12:30PM EST today. There’s a prize pool of $1,000,000 with half that set aside for whoever takes first place. Once again, the conclusion of the tournament looks to be in European hands. Surprisingly, however, Natus Vincere is not among them, having fallen to Astralis in the quarterfinals after a stellar run through the group stage.
As a result, Astralis is set to face Fnatic in the first leg of the semifinals, followed by Virtus.pro vs. the winner of FaZe Clan and SK Gaming. The winner of those two series will then meet in the grand finals set to take place tomorrow morning at 10:00AM EST. You can stream all of the games live right here, with the grand finals to be broadcast live on TBS as well.
