Our second Waoo CS:GO Main tournament invite is confirmed! All the way from Russia, we are proud to announce one of the most exciting, rising stars in esport at the moment: Quantum Bellator Fire.
Quantum Bellator Fire may not yet be a household name among most CS:GO fans but they certainly caught our attention with their recent stunning performance at the Boston Eleague Major. In Boston, Quantum Bellator Fire had come all the way through a minor tournament qualification to even be there. From there, they battled through both the Challenger and Legends tournaments to finish top 8 in the elite Champion Stage. This is an incredible feat, coming from virtual obscurity to fighting it out with the world elite. It has never been done before in esport and it’s exactly the sort of story we love to hear and have at Copenhagen Games.
Being new to the top circuit of esport, travelling the world still holds a special charm for Quantum Bellator Fire, as Team Coach Dmitriy Iksou Mikhaylichenko puts it:
‘We have followed Copenhagen Games in the past, watched the games on stream and each time we thought to ourselves: we're going to be a part of that someday. And now we're invited to play in the main tournament, that's a fantastic feeling. We're going to visit Denmark and see wonderful Copenhagen, we're very excited about this invite!’
We too are very excited to be hosting these dynamic newcomers to the world CS:GO elite. We’ll certainly be excited to see if they can keep up the level they showed in Boston, says Kasper Østergaard, Head of Esport at Copenhagen Games:
‘This is such a great invite for for us, and for me personally if I'm honest. To have the chance to reward a performance like the one Quantum Bellator Fire pulled off recently in Boston, that's why you host events like these. We get the chance to be a major part of what could turn out to be an esport fairy tale. I'll be sure to watch their matches, that much I can say!’
With two of our four Waoo CS:GO Main invites confirmed, the event is closing in fast. The next couple of weeks will be very exciting and we invite all of you to keep an eye on our website and social media outlets for further updates in the weeks to come.
