Hello guys from Belluno, in march we were on the biggest e-sport’s event in Europe – Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice. It was 3 days with amazing people, great e-sport emotions and huuuge event! Aside from main event, there was a bit smaller event named IEM Expo. It was one of the biggest games and new technologies exhibition in Europe. On that exhibition we could try new games on next-gen platforms, try ourselfes in many games competitions like: playing CS:GO on gamepads or playing VR’s games, what was completly new expierence for us. On Expo we could also meet some famous people from polish and worldwide Youtube, and Counter Strike pro-players from all teams invited to this event. We could meet them on special organised meeting sessions while we could talk with them, took a photo or even autograph. Main event took place on „Spodek Arena’’ where best CS:GO teams were playing on big stage in front of epic crowd. Unfortunetly polish team – „Virtus.Pro” didn’t passed group stage, so we couldn’t see them on main stage during event. However, they were guests at the event so we were able to got their autographs and photos too. The main tournament were on the highest international level, providing us huge emotions. Every team showed very high level. During the last rounds of the final map, the audience went crazy. Until the very end the fight was very even, so it was unknown who would win. Finally, after a very hard and exhilarating battle, the Swedish team "Fnatic" beat the European team "Faze Clan" 5-3 in the "Best of 5" system. "Faze Clan" showed them what they could afford and they were very close to getting the first place. Whole event had an incredi-ble stage setting which provide us amazing experiences. Before grand final on stage perform a DJ – Foux Tales who were playing live music. In our opinion, nothing is able to reflect these emo-tions and to find out fully what IEM is, so you have to come and experience it yourself!
