Vamos Tempo Storm!
After an intense weekend, packed with eight premier Counter Strike: Global Offensive teams, Tempo Storm have emerged victorious as your CEVO Gfinity CS:GO Pro League Season 9 Champions!
The all-star Brazilian line-up fended off competition from the likes of, Team Dignitas, Selfless Gaming, OpTic Gaming, Splyce and HellRaisers, before defeating fierce competitors, Virtus Pro, in a dramatic 3-2 series in the semi-finals.
However, Tempo Storm’s biggest challenge came in the form of last minute replacements, SK Gaming, who, to the surprise of many fans, finished second in Group B, only losing out to the Brazilians.
Unfortunately, SK Gaming were unable to seek revenge on Temp Storm in the S9 Grand Finals, as the passionate Brazilians, with the aid of an amazing crowd, swept aside the brave Danes in an epic 3-1 series.
Tempo Storm have now secured their first premier international championship within CS:GO, solidifying themselves as serious title contenders, and more importantly one of the best teams in the world, epitomised by the latest HLTV Team Rankings, which has seen Tempo climb four places into tenth place.
