The Intel Extreme Masters Shanghai 2018 captivated the audience in attendance at the ChinaJoy gaming exhibition (the largest in China and Asia) courtesy of NRG’s flawless gameplay en route to the title and the heroics of local outfit TyLoo.
TyLoo's Chinese/Indonesian comp had a nail-biter of a semi-final against the experienced Virtus.pro, but managed to come out on top after a dramatic double overtime finish. Champions NRG were dominant throughout the event, only losing one match in the whole tournament and will now turn their attention to ESL One New York 2018, where they will face some of the best CS:GO teams on Earth.
NRG will try to take their Shanghai momentum into ESL One New York powered by Intel in September. They will also try their hardest to represent the NA region in our December ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals in Odense.
