Home I eSports Tips I ESL Pro League Season 6
The tournament for a place in the seventh season of the ESL Pro League will be held from January 7-8. According to the results of the European Division of ESL Pro League Season 6, it will be played by Natus Vincere G2A and GODSENT, who are 12th and 13th in the regular season, respectively. From ESEA Season 26: Premier Division, the Europe slot has already received Space Soldiers, the third team after the playoffs. Meanwhile, from North America, Rogue, who finished 13th in the ESL Pro League Season 6, will face off against GX.
Natus Vincere is the DreamHack Winter champion of Jönköping after defeating Mousesports in the final. The best possible end of the year for the team of Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev and Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko. The objective of the side will be to face 2018 with the intention of reaching the top.
The group stage was full of tension for the Ukrainian club. After a 16-11 victory against Heroic, they would play the pass against Gambit, a special match for Zeus that would end 31-28 against Na’Vi after five overtimes. The final match would be against Heroic, who would win again, this time by 2-1 in a series to the best of three.
In the semifinals they faced Team EnVyUs, beating the French team 2 to 0. The tournament called for a rematch in the final against Gambit. A meeting that would have been emotional and of great importance to the Eastern Europe CS:GO. However, it didn’t happen. Mousesports beat them in the semifinals and would face the side of Natus Vincere. Na’Vi won the final 2-0 with a lot of force after a 16-4 in Cobblestone and 16-11 in Inferno.
The arrival of Denis “electronic” Sharipov due to the departure of Denis “seized” Kostin seems to be a positive sign for Na’Vi. The Russian player had a great impact in the final, getting 28 deaths in Inferno. S1mple was the most valuable player and closes the year with the potential to be the best on the planet.
This victory comes after the contract extension of S1mple. S1mple moved to Na’Vi in August 2016. With the team, he won the ESL One New York 2016 and DreamHack Winter 2017. Na’Vi also took 3-4 places at EPICENTER: Moscow, SL i-League StarSeries Season 3, and ESL One Cologne 2017. In 2017, Kostyliev visited both major labels: the ELEAGUE Major 2017 where Na’Vi entered the top-8 and lastly, the PGL Major Kraków 2017 where they did not overcome the group stage.
However, after the contract extension, things are going great with Zeus back on the team. The side will surely see off Space Soldiers as they are coming to the relegation battle after the return of Zeus and a title victory.
The Turkish team in the discipline CS:GO was established in January, 2015. Since the day of its formation, players have participated in many small tournaments, where they were able to win two seasons of QuickShot Arena. The biggest victory was the “gold” in CS:GO Champions League Season 3 in April, 2016. However, they are still not able to qualify for big competitions. Looking at them, they will surely need a miracle to secure a win against one of the best sides in Professional CS:GO.

Initially, the Danish team acted under the tag Unity. After a number of changes, the team never reached a high level of the gaming. They finally broke up in the spring of 2017. In July of the same year, a new American team was signed, previously playing under the Enigma6 Group.
Rogue signed a new line-up for CS:GO on July 23rd. It included three former members of the Enigma6 Group and Spencer “Hiko” Martin. The side of Rogue started the year with a bang after winning the ESEA Season 23: Global Challenge. Then, at the DreamHack Open Leipzig 2017, they couldn’t maintain their form as they finished the competition at 8th place. After that, they managed to win the Hellcase Cup #2, a minor competition. This victory was followed by a crushing 13th place finish at the ESL Pro League Season 6. In the competition, they only won only 4 games which were against NGR, Renegades, Ghost Gaming, and Immortals. As compared to the 6 victories, they lost 20 games and finished with a 23%-win ratio.
However, to end the year on a high, they managed a 3rd place finish at the Dust2.us Masters #1. They lost in the semi-finals to Rise Nation, who happen to be in the relegation battle. If Rogue sees off GX, they are likely to meet Rise for the grand finale.
Rogue asked the WESA (World eSports Association) for permission for an unscheduled transfer for the ESL Pro League. The team left Collin “wrath” McSweegan out of the active roster. This was reported by the site Dust2.us.
It is not known why wrath left the roster. According to HLTV, he either refused to speak for Rogue, or he was transferred to the reserve. In addition, in the last matches, he played for the team Ghost Gaming.
According to WESA rules, teams can sign players outside the transfer window in emergency cases. This advantage was taken by Immortals, which lost three players in late September. Dust2.us believes that the request of Rogue will be rejected. As the team has coach Garett “Grt” Bambrough, who should become the stand-in for the team.
The GX side might give a bit of a tough time to Rogue. With Braxton “swag” Pierce on the team, it will become somewhat tough to compete with GX on the maps. However, defeating Rogue in the best-of-three series wouldn’t be an easy task and GX will have to climb mountains in order to defeat Rogue.
GX 1.75 – 1.95 Rogue
