One of North America's largest and longest running Counter-Strike tournaments is back for its 2013 event. LAN ETS, hosted in Montreal Canada, will welcome Counter-Strike: Global Offensive so its tournament line-up for the first time. The 20+ CS:GO teams include professionals and amateurs alike, vying for $3,500 cash and hardware prizes.
As usual, the LAN ETS CS:GO tournament will be headlined by Team Dynamic, last year's winners when CS:S was used. Though instead of using n0thing and swag, former Dynamic members PEX and Legend will return to play in their hometown event.
Along with Dynamic, a number of other veteran local squads will compete including virulent/colo's VisualFX, Crucial Connexion, and powerMode, among others.
Several known American teams and pugs made the journey from the states such as Devastation, Trademark eSports and the ladies of Ubinited.
ESEA News is on-site at LAN ETS and will be capturing the event via score updates, photographs, videos and streams, if made available. Stay tuned throughout the weekend for tournament updates.
