Another week of thrilling esports has passed, and… well, guess who’s back, back again. Astralis won Season 12 of the European leg of the ESL Pro League after going through the Loser’s Bracket and reverse sweeping Na’Vi. We have to give props to new addition Patrick “es3tag” Hansen for showing up big-time, replacing Astralis’ clutchmaster Andreas “xyp9x” Hojsleth.
The tournament also saw a massive performance from Heroic, who made it all the way into third place, and Mousesports who placed 4th with new signing Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras seemingly fitting right in with the squad. Aand… That’s really all there was to this week. Is this the calm before the IEM New York storm?
We will see, starting Wednesday. With Astralis not participating, we’re sure to have an interesting team win the tournament, rather than the same old, same old.
