The fourth rendition of ESL One Cologne in 2017 was the biggest one yet. An unbelievable 15.000 fans came to watch their favorites play, and with all the world’s best teams in attendance, the only question was: can the Lanxess Arena take the heat? SK Gaming, FaZe Clan and G2 Esports entered the tournament as the favorites. The French side had to bid goodbye after a loss to Na’Vi in the quarters. SK and FaZe had a rendezvous in the semis, and once again, karrigan had to yield to FalleN, a match-up the Danish mastermind just cannot win. But the tournament wasn’t over yet. SK still had to face their North American rivals from Cloud9. A quick 3-0 for the Brazilians sealed the deal, and SK are our first two-time ESL One Cologne champs. And the Lanxess still stands – let’s test her again in 2018!
