On February the 28th, 2014 one of the best teams in the CS:GO scene will make their first appearance in London. The Fnatic Counter Strike Global Offensive team, who recently claimed the biggest major event in CS:GO history at Dreamhack Winter 2013 taking the $250,000 tournament by storm, will be the guests in the Meltdown bar in London. This weekend will combine a unique European clash of the titan’s tournament with on-site events including aim challenges, fun drinking games and play with the pro style competitions together with CS:GO fans. Also present at Meltdown will be the best UK team: Team Infused.
We will also host an online event featuring Fnatic, Team Infused, NiP and ex. Astana Dragons with the winner taking home $1,500. You're invited to come along and enjoy the event live from Meltdown London. Entry is free to the public.
