CS: Go has been one of the most popular and oldest Esports communities right now. There were others, too, if we consider the genre of FPS shooting games and how they influenced the entire Esports industry. In fact, the rise of FPS shooting games has been strongly dominated by CS: Go. Hence, in today’s blog, we will be getting into some of the best CS: Go tournaments of all time. These tournaments are a must-watch if you are trying to get into the CS: Go Esports community, and establish yourself as a pro player.

List of the Best CS: Go Tournaments

Here are some of the best CS: Go tournaments that have been recorded so far:

PGL Major Stockholm 2021

This was one of the first tournaments for CS: GO that the community was genuinely excited about. The reason was that the Majors were always considered to be LAN events, and even Valve thought it would be best if they were kept that way. Hence, they have not organised any Majors in 2020. As a result, when the PGL Major was announced for 2021, fans were immediately ecstatic.The tournament was held in Stockholm, Sweden. In addition, PGL has always hosted the majors in CS: Go.

The tournament had an average viewership of 593 061, with the Finals having the highest number of viewers at 2 748 434. The Major was won by Natus Vincere and they bagged a cash prize of $1,000,000. The runners-up were G2 Esports, Gambit Esports, and Heroic. These were some of the best teams in Cs: Go, and even after a year, they managed to show that they still have it.

PGL Major Antwerp 2022

This is another major that took place this year. This was again popular as the PGL Majors are always considered the best tournaments in the CS: Go community. The Major was held in Antwerp, Belgium. That was quite a change in location, and there was quite a good crowd of people who had gone to watch the PGL Major in Antwerp. Fans started to feel that things were finally returning to normal. Valve and PGL made sure that the tournament was carried out to perfection, and also that it was celebrated with some grandeur.

The winner of the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 was FaZe Clan, who was rewarded with $500,000. The runner-ups were Natus Vincere, Team Spirit, and ENCE. It was quite some time after that we saw FaZe Clan come up with an impressive win in the Cs: Go tournaments. The average number of viewers for the 2022 major was 586, with the highest number of viewers recorded at the finals with 213 610 peak viewers.

ELEAGUE Major 2017

This was one of the Major Championships that were held in the Cs: Go community. The 2017 one was so popular because all the participating teams were some of the best in the world. Though the ELEAGUE Major always tries to bring in teams who are among the strongest, the 2017 one was one of those nail-biting Majors of all time. It was held in Atlanta and was a LAN event. CS: Go majors and championships have made LAN events as popular as they are now, and hence, they try to maintain this whole image of LAN tournaments as much as possible. There were a total of 16 teams that qualified for the Majors.

However, for the Finals, there were only eight teams who were to compete among themselves. It was quite the competition to get into the top 8 spots, and throughout the Major, we saw tons of teams going up and down. Finally, the team to secure the first position was Astralis, who also won a cash prize of $500,000. The runner-ups were, Fnatic, and SK Gaming. As for the average number of viewers, it was calculated to be around 592 697, and the maximum number of viewers was recorded on the Finals night at 1,331,781. Hence, it was not that bad that the Major was held in 2017.

IEM Katowice Major 2019

The Intel Extreme Masters Katowice Major was one of the biggest Majors to be held in 2019. It was organised by Intel, so you can imagine how well-organized the entire tournament must have been! It was no surprise that it became one of the most popular tournaments that year, and fans still hope that Intel will try to organise another master for CS: Go someday. Though there has been no news about Intel doing so this year, we can only keep on hoping!

The Major was both an online and offline event, that is, the tournament was held in LAN mode, but the game was also streamed for those who could not make it to the stadium but still wanted to watch the Majors. The live stream had an average number of viewers of 396 890, whereas the maximum number of viewers was recorded on the Finals, at 1 205 103. The winner of the IEM Katowice Major 2019 was Astralis. By the time they were declared as one of the best Cs: Go teams, they were extremely difficult to defeat. They had won a cash prize of $500,000. The runner-ups were ENCE, Natus Vincere, and MIBR.
