Counter-Strike: Global Offensive joins Firefights lineup

Fortress Melbourne’s popular Firefights series expands its rotating roster with the popular esport’s Wingman mode.

Grab a mate and test your chops at Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with Fortress Melbourne’s latest casual/competitive offering.

CS:GO Wingman is the latest title and mode announced in the Fortress Melbourne Firefights’ rotating roster of first-person shooters.

Broadcast live to Twitch every Friday, over the last month the popular series saw more than 120 entrants battling for the top spot in the competition’s debut title, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Now, Firefights is expanding to the beloved competitive classic, Counter-Strike, with the smaller 2v2 game mode expected to create some fast-paced action.

Fortress Esports Marketing Assistant Chelsea Moss said they’re excited to include the popular esport in Firefight’s rotation after the initial success of our first tournament.

“We saw over 120 players of all skill levels return weekly to compete and over $5,000 worth of prizes claimed from our 4-week run,” she said.

“Many of the participants were newcomers to broadcasted tournaments and were ecstatic about competing in a professional and welcoming environment – which aligns with our mission that Fortress is a home of all gamers. 

“We can’t wait to introduce our different approach to open-skill friendly tournaments to the CS:GO community.”

And the winners’ pot is sweet with the southern hemisphere’s largest games venue offering up rewards from a $1200 prize pool every Friday.

An online tournament to start, Fortress bosses plan to bring the competition into their dedicated Alienware arena in the near future

Sign-ups for Week 1 open today via the Fortress Melbourne’s website and there’s more loot up for grabs, a share of a $600 Alienware prize pack when you register.

Entries are open Australians and cost $15 per person.
