At ESL One Cologne we witnessed a crazy underdog story unfold before our eyes as Heroic, a team nobody expected to make a run deep into the playoffs, plowed through Complexity, G2 and Vitality to win the tournament, an achievement truly worthy of the name on their shirts.

Unfortunately, just the next day, that would not be the story CS:GO fans are talking about as the team started to hit headlines for all the wrong reasons. After it was revealed that he was exploiting a coaching bug in the game, coach Nicolai ‘HUNDEN’ Petersen was banned from all DreamHack and ESL competitions for 12 months.


The star coach showed exactly what Heroic will be missing during ESL One, with is anti-stratting masterclass making him the driving force that pushed the underdog roster to the title.

This is the story of Hunden’s crowning glory and fall from grace, all in the space of 24 hours.

The US Army National Guard are running a series of CS:GO Community Nights and tournaments, all the way until December, with prizes up for grabs. Here’s how to get involved.

Starting in October, the community nights will offer up 30,000 points, which can be redeemed for prizes.


For the duration of the three-month-long series, players can also register their teams for bi-weekly tournaments, which will be held on the National Guard’s organizer page.

So, if you want to compete in CS:GO, participate in the community nights, and earn some prizes along the way, here’s everything you need to know.


How to register for National Guard Community Nights

First, you’ll need to be a United States resident to participate. Make sure you are registered here, and then you can sign up for each event.

Every player will begin with 1000 points, and be awarded 10 points for a win, or be deducted 10 points for a loss. The player with the most points will walk away with 10,000 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5,000, and 4th through 7th 2,500 each.

Links for all the upcoming community nights can be found below. Each night will begin at 12pm PT / 3pm EST.






For the bi-weekly tournaments, starting on October 18, players will be ranked on their wins/losses throughout this period. The top players will proceed to the next stage of the tournament and will be rewarded with Points, from a pool of 30,000.


To make things interesting though, Missions will be in-play for all matches, as a way to earn extra points. For example, actions such as getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills and more will be rewarded.


You will be set a mission challenge, for example, get 3 clutches, and succeeding will earn points.
