Forge of Masters. WePlay! League LAN-Finals Survival Guide

Oh, what fun we’ll have this weekend!

Forge of Masters. WePlay! League LAN-Finals are about to begin, and we can’t wait to give you guys the great show that’s been in the works for months.

About the tournament

The purpose of Forge of Masters. WePlay! League is to improve the international CS:GO scene by making the CIS region more competitive. With a deep pool of passionate and dedicated players, we believe it’s possible to make CIS one of if not the strongest region in the world.

In the first stage of the event, eight teams fought each other in the round-robin format. Every match had its mini-prize of $500.

The group stage standings.

In the final stage, the four remaining teams will play in a double elimination bracket.


HellRaisers came into Forge of Masters. WePlay! League as one of the heavy favorites and, though not unbloodied, came out of the group in the first place. According to Sergey “lmbt” Bezhanov, they are looking forward to the LAN-finals as it’s a good reason to gather all the players in one place.

AVANGAR has the advantage of playing together for a long time with very few roster changes. Dastan "dastan" Akbaev mentioned that the team gained motivation and next-level experience in Katowice, which makes them hungry to show great results in the upcoming LAN.

Vega Squadron had recently built up a new roster from scratch. In his recent interview, Igor "crush" Shevchenko said that WePlay! League is a great opportunity to take the new squad out for a test drive.

DreamEaters came into the WePlay! League as an up and coming team and we are immensely proud to be one of the TOs to “discover” this gem. Anton "speed4k" Titov shared a lot about the team routines, training and mindset.
