Team Brutality needs no introduction. The boys have shut down all the criticism after topping the scoreboard for the Summer Season. The return of Ayush “astaRRR” Deora has led to a spree of satisfying results for the team.
Team Invictus is an old name in the Indian Counter-Strike scene and their core team has won commendable titles under the banner of Entity Gaming & Eternal Esports in 2017. They haven’t stopped their run in 2018 and are tied with Team Brutality at nine wins in the online season.
2ez Gaming is a bunch of young boys tuned in to give an intense head-to-head fight to the veterans in the Indian scene. They are on a uprise since the ILG Mumbai Qualifiers where they couldn’t close down the maps against Entity Gaming at GearUP Cafe, Powai. Since then, they have acquired astonishing results in the ESL India Premierships.
Entity Gaming has had several ups and downs in the second season of ESL India Premiership. Having won both Fall Season finals and Winter Season finals in 2017, boys in blue were pretty dominating during late 2017. Entity merely qualified for the LAN event only after 2ez won against Portal e-Sports and VAC Banned won over Team Malhar.
