CS:GO Qualifier

The online qualifier for Assembly Winter 2017 CS:GO Tournament will be held on Sunday Jan 22 with four spots for the $15 000 tournament in Helsinki are up for grabs.

The Assembly Winter 2017 CS:GO Tournament is played on February 3-4, 2017 in Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre. A total of sixteen teams will enter the competition with most of them being direct invites. The event will also give a fighting chance for the upcoming Finnish talent by organizing an open online qualifier on January 22 which will grant four spots to the tournament.

The qualifier will be played on the FACEIT service which means that participants are required to create a FACEIT account and install the FACEIT client. The good news is, that teams do not need to rent their own game servers as the servers will be provided by FACEIT along with their reliable anti-cheat. Players can create an account and download the client at FACEIT.com.
