Today is the day, where BESL (Baltic Esport League) first games are starting. 🇪🇪️️Wortex-Gaming will stand against  🇱🇻SkinLordz as the Season 1 start. 

For the next nine weeks ten best Baltic state teams are going to battle for the prize pool of 7,000 and a chance to secure one of the four spots at the LAN finals held at Hypertown Riga 2018 EXPO taking place from 26th till 27th of May at Ķipsala exhibition center in Riga, Latvia.

Each week teams will face each other in a two Best-of-One game series also known as double header. This means that each of the games rewards teams with points based on the outcome.

1. What do you think about BESL?

Nothing but great things, all of the invited teams are really strong. This is where the Baltic’s best of the best have come together and play some high quality CS! So far the production, news, pictures, schedule etc – everything is done really well, so I’m hoping they will keep it that way.

2. First match against SkinLordz, thoughts?

We don’t really care who we face first, we have to play against every team anyway, so it doesn’t really matter. We know we’re the underdog this match, but that doesn’t phase us. We didn’t have a chance to play against them at interLAN 2017, but this is our chance.

3. Is the new line-up ready & thrilled to play on BESL?

Yes, everyone is motivated and are putting in the hours. We feel confident and the lineup looks a lot stronger, also everyone is getting along really well! Our map pool is a little poor though, since we had a 2-player roster change and we didn’t have much time to practice prior to BESL – but we will improve it as time goes on. None of us has had this opportunity before, so we’re all excited and ready show what WORTEX.csgo has to offer!

4. Any words for fans?
