ESL One NYC: Day 1 Recap

ESL One NYC: Day 1 Recap

Wrapping up a wild day in Brooklyn NY at the infamous Barclays Center, we’re bringing you some exciting moments from ESL One. We’ve got competition coverage, celebrity sightings and a handful of first looks for new and upcoming games. 

But before we get to all that…Naomi Kyle, take it away!

Unfortunately, she didn’t win the “Chicken Dinner” at the PUBG station, but as a consolation prize, was able to get her hands on the new fighting game Jump Force; just a few feet away. It features all the characters from the Shonen Jump comics so you can finally settle those arguments with your friends. “No way! Goku would beat the hell out of Naruto”.

Also at the booth is the fabled *clears throat, uses most dramatic voice possible* “Staaaage oofff histoooory”. That’s right, Soul Calibur VI is playable RIGHT NOW. One of the most dramatic weapons based fighters out there, it looks faster and more wild than ever. So grab a friend and let the smack talk begin. 


But let’s not forget about why we’re really here. The competition! The CS GO (Counter-Strike Global Offensive for the noobz) semi-finals were today and they did not disappoint. For an in-depth recap of the day’s action, check it out here.

And of course none of this is possible without YOU the fans. Submit your questions via Twitter to your favorite players using the hashtag #ESLoneATT and they may read your questions live!

Keep it tuned here tomorrow for our coverage of day two at ESL One, NY.
