954 headshots with an AK-47, 1,450 Molotov grenades and more!
As we prepare for the ESL ESEA Pro League Dubai Invitational, we look back on the phenomenon that was ESL One Cologne. At its peak, the German major enjoyed over 1.3 million concurrent viewers, breaking previous ESL One records by over 30% and setting new records for both ESL and Counter-Strike.
The event shattered further records with its 27 million unique viewers and close to 34 million hours of watched content on Twitch. And so, the major went down in history as not only the biggest, but also the most-watched Counter-Strike event of all time.
These amazing numbers would not have been possible, were it not for the amazing in-game performances delivered by the teams present. We’ve put together an infographic to highlight some of the truly fantastic FPS action that was on display at ESL One Cologne. Find out which player totalled almost 200 kills, thereby sailing past competitors with a 1.72 KD ratio, which grenades were launched close to 7,000 times, and which ESL Fantasy manager foresaw the competition best:
