ESL One NYC: Day 2 Recap

ESL One NYC: Day 2 Recap

ESL One NY’s tagline is “Where legends are made” and that certainly rang true today as fans were treated to an insane final CS:GO match between Team Liquid & mousesports. We’ll keep this article spoiler free, but check out our in-depth coverage to relive the day’s dramatic CS:GO events.

Outside of CS:GO, our day kicked off with the one and only, Naomi Kyle who caught up with a few fans to ask them what exactly about this competition has them hyped.

We also had a chance to chat with Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert who came by the booth to hang with fans. And in an unprecedented move, he sat down to play some PUBG with a few lucky folks; no “Chicken Dinners”, just a handful of super stoked fans.

For those lucky enough to earn the title of “Chicken Dinner winners”, AT&T gave them, our Thanks program members and the winners of the “Turn Right Tournament” the VIP treatment. They were given access to the VIP lounge where they had access to all the amenities they could ever want — food, drinks and comfy seats. Oh yeah, they also got to play Hitman 2: Sniper Assassin! Its kinda like a really brutal version of Where’s Waldo. But instead of pointing with your finger and saying, “found ’em”, just point your scope and say “found ’em”.
