Team Immunity’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive chapter have regained their crown as Pro-Am Champions last night, after toppling a combined Legacy eSports team in the Throwdown Esports CS:GO Pro-Am Championships.
Throwdown Esports (formerly 6t4Sports) Pro-Am Championships is a community tournament which sports four of the region’s best CS:GO players alongside six up-and-coming amateur players, pitting them against one another in a best-of-three matchup. For the past three weeks, amateur Counter-Strike players across the nation have fought head to head against each other on the Throwdown Community Night ladder, hosted by FaceIt, with the first and second place winners of each week obtaining the chance to play alongside the professionals in the finals.
Having participated in the previous two instances of the pro-am tournament under the 6t4Sports alias, Team immunity were once again invited back to participate, this time on a much grander scale in front of a live audience at Max Watt’s Theatre in Sydney, Australia.
The professional players representing Team Immunity were none other than MoeycQ and erkaSt, whom were teamed up with community winners Diony, JabboTheHut and Zebo2G. Their opponents; Legacy eSports professionals MattCd & Gotz, alongside their strike force of 1ukeyboy, Burklz97 and Mentl.
The games were played on maps Mirage, Cache and Inferno, with Legacy eSports starting off by taking home Mirage with a very close score of 14-16. Immunity were able to bounce back on map two though, edging out their opponents on Cache 16-12. It was the final map in which Immunity were able to bring home the goods, conquering Legacy eSports 16-9 on Inferno and regaining their title of pro-am champions.
With the combined Team Immunity taking home the glory, we would like to congratulate all of the participants for making it to the Throwdown Esports Pro-Am Finals. Team Immunity have enjoyed the opportunity to actively support Throwdown Esports and the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Pro-Am series.
Throwdown Esports also hosted events in eSports titles Rocket League and League of Legends throughout the day, with a combined total prize pool of $19,000 value across the three titles.
