If you haven't tuned into a match, what are you waiting for!? Witness some incredible plays, live for yourself. Here's an example:

CSGO play of the week is bwills glock 4kill on overpass (map 1) pistol rd in the CCT Grand Final vs paiN, which ultimately started our momentum and lead to us placing 1st in CCT NA Series 3 (credit: hamtaro1H)

With MarkE on the roster, the CS:GO team has looked strong, with 1st place finishes in the CCT tournament and the most recent ESEA Cash Cup.

Good luck to the team in their next next matches later today and Feb 21!

Pokémon Unite

Big congratulations to our Pokémon Unite team for placing 2nd in the Pokémon Unite Championship Series February Finals: Europe. The team was bounced early from Upper Bracket 2:1 by TimetoShine, but regrouped, made a run, and later beat them in Lower Bracket Finals!

The team was on a roll and even forced a Grand Finals Reset against Talibobo Believers! Unfortunately, they came up a bit short in the dying embers of a thrilling series. Oh well, they'll get 'em next time!

GGs all around and well done on securing 240 Championship Points!
