ESL One New York is returning to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for its fourth year running, as eight of the best teams in global Counter-Strike battle for their share of the $200,000 prize pool.

At last year’s tournament, mousesports walked away with the trophy, but they won’t even be in attendance this time around, after failing to secure the spot from the European qualifier.

Instead G2 Esports took the spot, and will be joined by fellow European squads Astralis, ENCE, FaZe Clan and OpTic. Team Liquid, newly-transferred Evil Geniuses and eUnited will be the North American representatives.

ESLThe action will go down at the Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets NBA team.

The tournament is first opportunity to see Coldzera in a FaZe jersey, as well as the new Evil Geniuses roster, who joined from NRG on the day the tournament starts. 

G2 also have a new-look roster, with kioShiMa being used as a stand-in, following the departure of Shox.

Astralis and Liquid will be the favorites heading in, and the proposition of a final between the two powerhouses will be on many fans’ wishlists.

Although they played at the Berlin Major, it was a round one match in the legends stage, and in truth, Liquid were roundly outplayed by Astralis, whose surprise Vertigo pick threw the North American’s off.

The now-former NRG lineup will be hoping they can bring it home for North America, as they now fly the colors of Evil Geniuses, in the organization’s return to Counter-Strike after seven years out of the scene.

How Team Vitality Broke their CSGO Curse Against All Odds @ IEM Beijing

Dexerto explores how Vitality was able to win their first tournament of the year at IEM Beijing, pulling out an incredible comeback against a seemingly unstoppable NaVi. 

French CSGO has made a comeback in the past two years, with Team Vitality and G2 Esports working hard to put France back on the map.
While the performance of the two best teams in the region has been admirable, reaching multiple grand finals throughout the year, they have failed to overcome their opponent on every occasion.
After their performance at Blast Premier Fall Series, Vitality looked to be in good form coming into IEM Beijing-Haidian, especially as the addition of Nabil ‘Nivera’ Benrlitom seemed to add another weapon to the Vitality arsenal.
The Frenchmen showed from the start of the group stages how dangerous they could be and how their new sixth member could change the way they approached games.
The finals of the tournament saw the two highest-rated players in the world face each other, with Oleksandr ‘s1mple Kostyliev taking on Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut. Both acting as catalysts for one of the most entertaining series of the year.
The rivalry between the two is only just starting, with a few tournaments still left before the end of the year, both prodigies are looking to claim the title of the best player of 2020.
