ASUS ROG Valkyrie League heads into playoff weekend
Clint 'Zombie Dredd' O'Shea
The ASUS ROG Valkyrie League for CS:GO heads into the playoffs this coming weekend. The top four from the group stages will face off in a double elimination bracket on Saturday and Sunday.
Nine teams started out in the all-female Counter-Strike league almost two months ago, and while two teams were lost on the way, the seven remaining teams played some entertaining CS:GO over the tournament. As the final matches finished this past Wednesday, Bravado Finesse, LeetPro, Amaryllis Gaming and Glacier Purple took the four playoff spots on offer.
On the line is a total of R50,000 in cash split between the top three teams, meaning one of the teams heading into the weekend will be walking away empty-handed. The prize breakdown per placing is as follows:
- 1st place: R25,000
- 2nd place: R15,000
- 3rd place: R10,000
Saturday 2 June
- 10am: Upper Bracket Match One
- 1pm: Upper Bracket Match Two
- 4pm: Lower Bracket Match One
- 7pm: Upper Bracket Final
Sunday 3 June
- 12pm: Lower Bracket Final
- 3-4pm: Break and Pre-Show
- 4pm: Finals
All matches are best-of-three, other than the final which is a best-of-five. Matches will be streamed via the Mettlestate Twitch channel.
