Monte vs BESTIA Match Preview


Even though Monte have not taken part in many Tier-one CS2 events, the results in the tournaments that they did attend suggest that they are one of the most consistent teams in the world at the moment.

The Ukrainian-majority roster has an ESL Challenger title to their name, as well as two top-four placings in online tournaments. A number of the team’s wins have to be attributed to Szymon “kRaSnaL” Mrozek, who has stepped up massively in CS2 and became one of Monte’s star players virtually out of nowhere.

The Pole’s rise in form has been one of the driving factors behind their success.

There is no doubt that Monte’s goal for this event is to end the year on a high and leave USA with another ESL Challenger trophy. Everything suggests that they’ll get off to a good start and take care of BESTIA, before facing some tougher opposition later in the tournament.


The Argentinian squad has been making waves in its local scene, beating well-known Brazilian teams, such as Imperial and paiN as well as other top South American teams like 9z.

However, this is BESTIA’s first international LAN tournament, so it would not be surprising to see them struggle against the more experienced European opposition.

Although, them being an unknown quantity could work in their favour, as some teams may find it difficult to adapt to their style of play.

Being one of the lowest ranked teams in attendance at ESL Challenger Atlanta, BESTIA shouldn’t be expected to make a deep playoff run or pull off an upset. They are here to gain invaluable LAN experience against new opponents and learn as much as they can from their matches.
