After 7 weeks of intense Counter-Strike action FM Esports stand strong at the top of the table in a season that saw them drop only two maps across seven series. A dominant 2-0 performance in the final week ultimately elevated them over their close MnM Gaming, now both teams face off against one another in our live Grand Finals in the heart of Leicester on March 18th from 4pm.
Not only has the team been recently acquired by MnM organisation, they have also made a roster change ahead of the Finals and brought in the experience of Quix. Him and all the team are out for revenge especially after a disastrous 16-2 loss on Cobble.
Team Xenex dominated the League of Legends scene this season with only dropping a single game in week 4 against our eventual 3rd place seed xL esports. They’re joined in the Grand Finals by MnM Gaming for a second season in a row, as our reigning champions MnM look to defend their title on the Rift after a shaky season that saw draws against GLB and a 0-2 defeat to Xenex in week three.
Back on track with a stable roster and the burning desire to rejoin the Challenger Series Qualifier to put right the mistakes of last season, will we see MnM raise the trophy once again after a shaky season or will a new victor emerge?
