The Finnish record holders of King Of Nordic are prepared for their next bout, and they’re armed to massacre the competition.

Stockholm Sweden: It’s all happening this Friday on the best esport show in the world. — King of Nordic is yet again opening its doors to the Nordic esport scene with the start of CS:GO season 6 tournament. Together with the world's best partners in Logitech G and Samsung season 6 promises to be a mixture of serious sport and serious fun, featuring in depth analysis, masterful casting and headshots that will literally blow your mind.

“In the last season we raised the prize pool to 10.000 Euro and it really paid of. We had over 8.000 players participating in season 5 making the King of Nordic one of the biggest CS:GO tournaments in the Nordics.” Said founder Christer “Mr Mouse” Körnbäck.

As always to keep it interesting there are some new elements to the show.

  • The bracket has been changed so Iceland now becomes a part of the big Friday show. 4 matches each Friday instead of 3.
  • Now there are 6 maps instead of 4, Cobblestone, Mirage, Overpass, Cache, Nuke and finally Inferno is back in competitive Counter Strike.
  • During his guest appearance at Dreamhack Robin “Voltie” Takac made such an impact on us that we just had to make him a part of the show.
  • Our caster Robin “crusher” Engström will have his own analytical segment going deeper than never seen before.

“For a lot of the gamers King of Nordic is more than just another tournament, it’s a way to get recognition and respect. I loved being a part of last seasons show and feeling the passion the viewers gave to our brand. Seeing all the tweets with pictures and sometimes funny debates on which gaming brand was the winner. Logitech will continue to support the grassroot gaming community with prize money and weekly prices”, said Johan Ryman Logitech
