How Did the Pandemic Affect Counter-Strike?

Posted on March 23, 2020 - Last Updated on August 27, 2020

It’s all over the news, COVID-19 is talked about everywhere. Just like everything else, esports have been affected by this virus too, and that’s why we wanted to provide you with a shortlist of upcoming CSGO tournaments that will still go ahead. All of these events will be played online, streamed live for you to watch.

Upcoming CSGO Tournaments That Will be Played

Now that all LAN events are canceled, only a few popular CSGO leagues will be played:

  • ESL Pro League Season 11
  • Flashpoint 1
  • ESEA MDL Season 33

As you can see, there’s not much happening in the professional CSGO scene right now. Truth be told, we are blessed that esports athletes can compete at home, and we hope to see other major events migrate online soon. We do not believe that these three events will be postponed, so you do not have to worry about placed CSGO bets.

ESL Pro League Season 11

Out of the three upcoming CSGO tournaments, this is by far the most popular one. ESL Pro League Season 11 acquired all of the top teams who are competing for their chance to book themselves a spot in the ESL Pro League Season 11 Finals.


Teams such as Astralis, Liquid, MiBR, FaZe, Vitality, ENCE are all competing in this online league. The best thing about it is competitiveness. All of the teams competing are able to pull off a surprise victory.

Furthermore, odds on the underdogs are stacked right now and the best bookmakers will provide you with various promotions and special bets regarding these matches.

Flashpoint 1

This is the first season of Flashpoint league. Not such a good time to start it, huh? To be honest, not a lot of top teams are attending this one despite a fat $1,000,000 in prize pool money.

However, Flashpoint was able to acquire a couple of contenders such as Dignitas, MiBR, Cloud9, Gen.G, c0ntact, MAD Lions.

All in all, a lot of sites are covering this CSGO tournament which will allow you to profit from betting.


ESEA MDL Season 33

To be honest, this is a very low tier tournament. Furthermore, this is mainly a regional-based tournament. For instance, ESEA MDL Season 33 Australis is live right now. The best team competing there is ORDER. We know for a fact that barely anyone of you heard about it.

From our perspective, this is not a top tournament where you can expect top contenders to crush everyone. If you do your research, you could find a lot of holes in someones’ game and capitalize on it hence why you should not miss out on ESEA MDL Season 33 betting.
