As the third season of the CEE Champions gets closer and closer, the first teams are starting to fill the starting line-up. We’re already up to 12 qualifiers, so let’s take a look at who exactly will be in the running for the $30 000.
Hungary has the strongest representation so far. Both ONYX and Budapest Five have experience of the European scene and will be looking to go as far as possible. B5 has even qualified for both seasons so far, but their journey has always ended in the quarterfinals. We haven’t seen ONYX here yet, but that doesn’t change the fact that they will be one of the biggest favourites.
Let’s not forget about the other regions. The young representatives of Ukraine, B8, or Slovenia, Contentplanet, will want to make the most of their experience and try to succeed after the failure from the second season. SC e-Sports, who surprised everyone last year by reaching the play-off, will then try to do the same.
That’s probably the biggest names we’ve had so far, but as everyone knows, CS:GO brings unexpected moments. We don’t know much about the teams W1NX, K1CK, Okura, ZeroTenacity, Costal Mayhem, Agregatio and Perspektiva yet, but the fact that they made it through the tricky qualifiers proves their quality. And who knows, maybe they’ll climb up among the best teams in the world, like SINNERS Esports did after their first season.
If you’re from Albania, Kosovo, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, North Macedonia, Lithuania, Latvia or Greece, check the page in the top section of our website to see if there are still open spots to register for the qualifiers!
