In the wake of the ELEAGUE Major (congratulations Astralis!), we’re making a change to the map pool: Inferno has returned to Active Duty, replacing Dust II, and will be featured at the next CS:GO Major. As in the past, the updated Active Duty pool is automatically selected when you enter Matchmaking.*
And in Casual and Deathmatch game modes, it’s now a bit easier to play your favorite maps. Map groups have been separated into additional categories: Active Duty, Hostage, Reserves, and Dust II.
*(don’t worry, it’s just as easy as ever to play Dust II. It’s now front and center on the Competitive Matchmaking map selection screen)
Congratulations to Astralis, the winners of ELEAGUE Atlanta 2017! They take home $500,000 of the $1,000,000 prize pool. This is their first Major title.
Astralis won the best of three against Virtus.Pro, winning on Overpass(16-14) and then on Train(16-14). If you missed any of the matches or want to watch the highlights, you can download all the games from the ELEAGUE Atlanta 2017 tab in the WATCH menu.
