The World Electronic Sports Games Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Championship European and CIS regional qualifiers kicked off today with some big names competing. GODSENT, Team EnVyUs, Virtus.pro, Dignitas and Astralis were among several teams who competed today.
Within the top teams, some fared better than others. Notably, Virtus.pro struggled and dropped both of their matches on the day. They lost to both Team Russia and Team Norway in games against competition that they should have been able to beat. Dignitas, on the other hand, dominated both of their opening games, going 3-0 against Team iGame.com, k1ck old, and Epsilon Esports. GODSENT, undoubtebly one of the tournament favorites, started their campaign at 2-1, defeating both Team LDLC.com Espoir, and PIXEL, before a questionable loss against Team Ukraine.
