South African CS: GO fans shouldn't miss out on the ECL Legends show match


One of the most exciting things I have ever experienced in esports was sitting behind one of the top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) teams in South Africa, cheering them on as they took down a championship. CS: GO is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of spectator esports as every moment is exciting and the more you know about the game and each map, the better it becomes.

That’s why I am so extremely excited about Evetech Champions League (ECL) and before that kicks off, the most awesome thing I have heard this year. I am, of course, talking about The Legends versus the New Contenders show match, where a legendary team of local CS: GO greats will take on a team, who will be chosen by the community. There’s even quite a big prize at stake, as the teams will be battling it out for R10,000. The ECL and the show match is brought to you by Evetech in partnership with Lenovo Africa and produced by Mettlestate.

The legends team consists of the players below, three of which I have personally met and sat behind when they played in top SA tournaments.

  • Andreas "cent" Hadjipaschali
  • Dane "racno" Friedman
  • Jannie "HellHound" Van Niekerk
  • James "zerOchaNce" Wjinberg
  • Riaan "stYle" Van Niekerk

That’s a formidable team, to say the least, so who will they go up against? Well, as mentioned earlier, that’s up to the community as they have three teams to vote for.

Voting is open until 25 May, at which point the team with the most votes will be announced. You can vote for your favourite team over here. While you’re at it, give them some love on social media and show your support.

More details about the ECL will be shared during the live stream of the awesome show match which takes place on 10 June 2018 and it is, in my opinion, a match no local CS: GO fan should miss out on.

What do you think about the idea of this show match and which team do you think will get the most votes and face the legends? Let us know in the comment section below.
