One of the biggest Majors in CS:GO history is starting next week. And as the saying goes there is always the calm before the storm. But as calm as this week has been, there is still a few things to keep in mind.
The Groups and Schedule For Dreamhack Cluj- Napoca is Out
This is the first step into the mental preparation for this major. Dreamhack released the composition of each groups for this major. Something awesome with such a top-level event is that it is a hard task to predict who could be able to get to the playoffs and who won’t.
Except a few favorites, most teams are at a similar skill level and the battle in the group stage will be tough! Notice the group C which is said by many to be the group of death, so much so that it left Hiko speechless.

Players and Team Stickers Are Available
This is without a doubt my favorite add-on in the game. Who doesn’t want a Tec-9 signed by Olofmeister or an Awp with a KennyS sticker on it?
Team stickers were always available but player stickers add the possibility to shout your admiration for a player by buying his sticker. This concept is very interesting for the CS:GO scene because half the money that you spend on theses stickers will go directly to the players. This funding action helped a lot of lower-tier teams (like Luminosity or Vox Eminor before them) to get the financial support needed to keep growing.
Those stickers sure are fancy, but it is definitely more than just a cosmetic item for the role it plays in the scene.
Play of the Week:
This week it’s none other than Virtus pro Snax who get the medal with an impressive 4k Ak-47 spray versus Fnatic. Even at a close range, you won’t see such a spray control everyday
