Turkish Super Team Eternal Fire to Compete in BLAST Fall Showdown Qualifiers
Eternal Fire dominated local teams in inaugural tournament.
The Turkish CS:GO super team, Eternal Fire which was officially announced last week on 14th August, recently participated in their first-ever CS:GO tournament, ESA Esports Supremes 2021. The team, led by İsmailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş, was unstoppable, dropping just one map on its way to winning the tournament as it defeated Sangal Esports twice. The tournament that Eternal Fire won acted as the Turkish qualifier for TWR Eastern European Masters: Fall 2021, which itself is a qualifier for BLAST Premier: Fall Showdown 2021.
Eternal Fire will be facing different teams from across Eastern European regions like Entropiq Prague, NOM-Gaming, AIRLYA, and more in the upcoming BLAST Fall Showdown qualifier.
Eternal Fire dominates CS:GO teams in their first-ever tournament
Eternal Fire has started on a strong note as they established themselves as one of the stronger teams from Turkey. Sangal Esports did give them a tough time in their first best-of-three series but failed to recreate the same when facing them the second time around.
XANTARES, despite leading the team within the server, still turned out to be the best player in the tournament with an overall rating of 1.53 and a K/D differential of +82. Both Özgür "woxic" Eker and Ömer "imoRR" Karataş were there in the top-five players of the tournament with an overall rating of 1.29 and 1.22, respectively.
The team of superstar players have done extremely well in their inaugural tournament, winning it and making their way through the Turkish qualifier to compete in TWR Eastern European Masters. This will be the real test for the squad as claiming victory in this tournament will guarantee Eternal Fire a slot in the BLAST Fall Showdown 2021, which could be their first tournament against other top-tier CS:GO teams from across the world.
Eternal Fire is made up of various star players from different organizations, all coming together, calling themselves "The Turkish Super Team." The lineup could possibly put Turkey on the forefront of the international CS:GO competitive scene. Woxic was the first one to tease this lineup a few months back, but after failing to attract an organization, the players decided to create an organization on their own.
It will be interesting to see how the lineup goes on to perform from here on out. The team seems to be in great shape right now, but their real performance will be accessed when they go up against Tier-1 or Tier-2 international CS:GO teams.
