Astralis are back on top, and back in the history books as well. With their victory in Berlin, they set two records with three straight major championships (FACEIT London, IEM Katowice, and now StarLadder Berlin) and four overall including ELEAGUE Atlanta.

Astralis got off to an 8-0 start on their map pick, Inferno, and never let AVANGAR get any momentum going, taking it 16-6. The great Danes didn’t take their feet off the gas for even a second, getting out to a 7-1 lead on Dust II, and maintained their lead en route to a 16-5 final score to take the series and the trophy.

With all that said, here are the final placements and prize shares for all of the teams at Berlin Major 2019.

Biggest surprises in Berlin

As with virtually all CSGO Majors, the tournament in Berlin has produced a couple of surprising storylines that will dominate conversation topics for the next few months.

Powerhouse squads Team Liquid and Team Vitality facing early exits in the quarterfinals of the Champions Stage definitely fits that criteria, especially the way tournament-favorites Liquid was disposed of by Astralis.

G2 Esports not even making it that far is another major surprise, as they went 2-3 in the Legends Stage and dropped out before making it to Champions.

Last but not least, the manner with which FURIA Esports underachieved also raised many eyebrows, as they went 1-3 in the Challengers Stage and couldn't even make it to Legends. 

With the Berlin major now wrapped up, the teams look ahead to the next major in spring 2020. The details and location of that major have not been announced yet. Congratulations again to Astralis.
