ASUS ROG WINTER '20
HELSINKI EXHIBITION AND CONVENTION CENTRE
THU 20th - SAT 22 FEBRUARY
Groups can now be revealed as LDLC OL completes the team lineup as the last invite for ASUS ROG Winter 2020 CS:GO Tournament, kicking off in two weeks, on February 20!
Only two weeks to go until we kick off the winter season with ASUS ROG Winter 2020 CS:GO Tournament in Helsinki. The invites have been sent and the qualifiers have been held. It is finally time to reveal the full lineup of teams competing for the €12,500 EUR prize pool on February 20-22.
We are pleased to reveal that the last invited team is LDLC OL from France! Last month LDLC announced that they have teamed up with the Lyon based football club Olympique Lyonnais and signed four new players to their CS:GO roster. The French team is no stranger to ASUS ROG and Assembly events in Helsinki as they managed to grab the championship at Assembly Winter 2016 and the silver medal at ASUS ROG Winter 2018. Coincidence or not, it has once again been exactly two years since their previous podium placement in Helsinki, when they now return to test the level of Counter-Strike in Finland.
The new LDLC OL lineup: hAdji, LOGAN, Lambert, Gringo, SIZER. Photo courtesy of LDLC OL.
The online qualifiers for ASUS ROG Winter 2020 CS:GO Tournament concluded yesterday evening on February 6 with a fresh mix team with some serious firepower snatching the qualifier spot. Established teams were left behind while KYNYNIEKAT emerged from the fold as the second and final team to qualify for the event, congratulations!
