What follows the Columbus major from last month? You guessed it right, another major. ESL One Cologne is the largest standalone Counter-Strike event ever and last week (for the fifth time) named as an official Valve Major. A total of 16 teams will compete for the 1 million dollar prize pool. The 8 teams that made the quarter final in Columbus will be invited directly.
The other 8, called “Challengers”, will have to compete in Regional Minor Championships in different regions to qualify.
Aetas will also be present at this championship and several members will be traveling to Cologne to watch the action live.
Members can check out the the “event” section on the forum for more information on tickets and travel. Our hope is to go with as much members as possible to have an awesome weekend and represent Aetas directly.
