ESL Pro League und BLAST Fall Showndown auf CS:GO

Die Turnierveranstalter ESL und BLAST haben aufgrund des Übergangs zu CS2 darüber informiert, dass ihre laufenden bzw. kommenden Turniere noch auf CS:GO ausgetragen werden. Die ESL Pro League Season 18 befindet sich derzeit mitten in den Playoffs, was einen Wechsel zu CS2 unmöglich macht.

Gegenüber HLTV bestätigte auch BLAST, dass der kommende Woche startende BLAST Premier: Fall European Showdown 2023 noch auf CS:GO gespielt werde.
