IEM Katowice 2024 playoffs has wrapped up, and Team Spirit has lifted the trophy after a dominant run, losing only one map in the win. Here is all you need to know of the tournament.

The 2024 edition of IEM Katowice is already chock-full of important storylines as teams test their roster’s capabilities in the first big tournament of the 2024 season.

Team Spirit as it turns out would have one of the most dominant Katowice runs in history, only losing one map the entire tournament, with their young gun Danil “donk” Kryshkovets putting on a world-class performance to net him the MVP just at 17 years old.

Team Spirit met FaZe Clan in the Grand Finals, this not being FaZe’s first Kato finals. However, it seems the CS giants in FaZe clan were no match against donk and Team Spirit, being handily defeated in a 3-0.
