One of CS:GOs first (non-Valve) Majors started today at 13:00, the Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice, Poland. This will be our first chance to see how the world’s best CS:GO teams have prepared for 2016. Even though Fnatic retained their number one spot in the world EnvyUS and Luminosity came pretty close.
