ESG v Alternate Attax: ESL eSports

November 4, 2017 by

Good Week to Discover eSports Betting 

Kiwi online punters yet to explore the betting options available on eSports have several options to tempt them on Friday and Saturday, 3 and 4 November. The 2017 Heroes of the Storm World Championship grand finals run in Anaheim, California on Friday and Saturday, and Saturday also sees the best-of-five final of the 2017 League of Legends World Championship in Beijing.

There’s also likely to be intense action in the national ESL Pro League Winter Championship game in Germany along with the other two tournaments. ESL, originally launched as Electronic Sports League, is the oldest eSports company still in existence, and the world’s largest.

It holds a variety of national championships in regions all over the world, with pro teams playing strategy and war games like Mortal Kombat, Heroes of the Storm, Halo, Battlefield 4 and, as in the Winter Championship, Counter-Strike.

Euronics v Alternate Attax: ESL Winter Championship

The ESL German Winter Championship features 10 teams in nine rounds-robin, each team playing a two-match format against their opponents for the round. There is only one match day per week, and Saturday’s contest between Euronics Gaming (ESG) and Alternate Attax in Krefeld, Germany, is a Round 2 fixture, so there is still a lot of Winter Championship action ahead.

Picking a winner for Saturday’s two-match contest could be tricky. In Germany’s ESL Summer Championship earlier this year, the ESG team took out Alternate Attax, the winner of last season’s 99Damage league. But ESG then fell to Panthers Gaming in the Summer Championship final.

Since then, the ESG team has been rebooted almost completely, with only Thilo ‘syken’ Phan retained from the original line-up, joined by Christian ‘crisby’ Schmitt, Marko ‘kressy’ Dordevic, Oliver ‘kzy’ Heck and Markus ‘maRky’ Bach.

Alternate Attax lost Schmitt to ESG after the Summer Championship, but they replaced him with rated Dane Nicolai ‘DOGS’ Peterson. He joins the rest of the existing line-up: Titian ‘tiziaN’ Bush, Florian ‘syrson’ Rische, Stefan ‘stfN’ Seier, and Luke ‘ecfN’ Kauer.
