After over a month of excitement at the CCT South Europe Series #4, Astralis was crowned tournament champion after defeating Eternal Fire 2-1 in the Grand Final. As a result, the Danish team takes home $22,000 in prize money.

Unfortunately for teams like ALTERNATE aTTaX and Websterz, who fought from the tournament’s first day to be at the top of the podium, the bigger teams ultimately made it to the top.

However, it is worth highlighting the performance of Endpoint, who were very close to being eliminated in the first rounds of the tournament. Still, then they recovered and were able to reach the semifinals of the tournament.

Astralis crowned champion of CCT South Europe Series #4 after beating Eternal Fire

Astralis and Eternal Fire were invited to the CCT South Europe Series #4 playoffs. On the Danish side, they managed to leave Iron Branch in the round of 16, Aurora Gaming in the quarterfinals, and OG in the semifinals.

However, the Turks had a somewhat easier road, as they crushed 2-0 the three opponents they faced, B8 in the round of 16, Into The Breach in the quarterfinals, and Endpoint in the semifinals.

There is no doubt that this grand final looked to be exciting, and it was.
