‘Counter-Strike’ Major rematch feels like a WWE pay-per-view
Six months after the electric grand finals at the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ELeague Major, the two finalists are coming together once again for a rematch with $250,000 on the line.
ELeague is hosting a prize match called Clash for Cash: The Rematch this summer, featuring Major champions Astralis and second-place team Virtus.pro. The Major grand finals in January was a close 2-1 victory for Astralis and broke viewership records on Twitch (which could’ve partially inspired the rematch idea).
A Major finals rematch like this has never been done in Counter-Strike history, at least not with this level of fanfare and production.
ELeague is owned by Turner Broadcasting, which also is an investor in Mashable.
