After two failed attempts last weekend, Babos Gaming brought back their first major national title after 6 years: they won their first SEL Series format tournament in CS:GO.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Spring Series kicked off in March. The competition was divided into three phases: the playoffs (where all participating teams are divided into three divisions), the competition phase (up to five divisional matches are played in three weeks) and finally the playoffs including the Grand Final.
Eight teams qualified for the top division, CS: GO Elite Division. The ranking after the competition stage looked as follows:
- Esports in Lausanne
- no fire
- sports form
- Papo games
- Salgado Terrace
- machete seraph
Unfortunately, the Lausanne Esports roster was unable to make it to the playoffs. One player on the team had to sit out for health reasons. Thus, the slot was passed to the team in fifth place, Yensanity.

In the playoffs, Papus defeated mYinsanity in the Losers’ bracket after a small slip. In the final they beat mYinsanity with an impressive score of 2-0. Unfortunately, the hoped-for revenge from Lausanne Esports did not materialize after their defeat in the Grand Final of the Swiss ESL National Championship.
Claudio “Pratishka” Itri, Head of Esports at Papus Games, says: “I was sure we could win this thing when I saw the players’ performance yesterday. We showed that we can be the best team in Switzerland. Unfortunately, we still have to wait for revenge from Lausanne. I am definitely excited for the Champions League matches!”

Revenge is not far off: if Lausanne can qualify for the playoffs in the Champions League, it is possible that the next match will already take place in the semi-finals or grand final on May 15 or 22. It’s still exciting in the Swiss CS: GO scene.
