Last year’s ESL One: New York saw mousesports as the victors, with Team Liquid finishing in second place. However, much has changed since then, mousesports have an entirely new roster and FaZe Clan, who finished last at the event, will certainly be looking to bounce back from last year’s failure.
The event also saw Gambit Esports finish 3-4. They will certainly not make an appearance this time around considering their huge decline.
ESL One: New York is considered to be a spectacular event nearly every year. For more information on the event, check out ESL’s website here.
