This weekend in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the Selfless CS:GO team, also known as Team America, were crowned champions of the WESG Americas region!
After dominating all throughout Group Play, defeating teams from Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico, we secured our place to the WESG Grand Finals event in China, in addition to a direct spot in the Americas Regional semi-finals.
In the semi-finals we faced off against Team One, another team from Brazil, and were able to secure a quick best of 3 victory in 2-0 fashion. This put us into the finals against North American rival Canada, featuring the legendary KKona Ocean ODEAG. After blowing a lead on the first map, we lost it in overtime, and had to come back in the best of 3 series from a 0-1 deficit.
On the next two maps, however, we were able to secure convincing wins, bringing home a championship to America from an international event. We'd also like to point out that since changing our logo, the fellas from the CS:GO team have not lost a series. LOGO ENERGY? Maybe.
Super excited about the win and being able to represent America not only at this event, but at the $1,500,000 LAN finals in China!
