Team EnVyUs win WESG, biggest grand prize in CS:GO history

Esports Asia News
[hkes_show_google_ad] Team EnVyUs have won the World Electronic Sports Games 2016 Grand Finals and its $800,000 grand prize — the largest cash prize in CS:GO history. nV defeated Team Kinguin 2-0 in the Grand Finals, taking Train 16-5 and Dust II 16-6. By the end of Game 2, nV’s Nathan “NBK” Schmitt had a 2.22 KDR with 20 kills, three assists and just nine deaths on Dust.
The tournament’s $1.5 million prize pool is the largest in CS:GO history, beating out the Majors’ $1 million prize pools and ELEAGUE Season 1’s $1.4 million purse. The $800,000 grand prize is also EnvYuS’ biggest win to date — the team’s highest single-tournament earnings before WESG was the $100,000 they won at DreamHack Cluj-Napoca. Tournament favorites were eliminated in the semifinals after a 2-0 loss to Team Kinguin. VP rallied and took their third place match against Space Soldiers 2-0, but it’s safe to say that few expected VP to be knocked out by the Polish team. On the way to the Grand Finals, nV defeated TyLoo and Space Soldiers, while Kinguin played Epsilon eSports and VP. [hkes_show_google_ad]
