FACEIT, Mythic Team Up For NA-Based Mythic League
The CS:GO competitive scene is always ahead of its time when it comes to player participation, thanks to the leagues and organizations promoting events that involve the community behind successful esports tournaments. Flashpoint, the first team-owned league in esports, sparked change in the competitive scene. Promoting this trend, CS:GO organization Mythic Reborn followed through with its own competitive league in North America: the Mythic League. This adds more thrill to the Bitcoin CS:GO odds list and opens up more winning opportunities this season.
Mythic partners with FACEIT for the event. Mythic League features two formats—Invite and Open Divisions with a total prize pool of $25,000. The tournament starts on May 25 and runs through June 23.
