”We saw a really strong Viperio side today. While missing out on a place in RES WEU Masters is unfortunate, today's performance will definitely boost morale going into league competitions across February. Things look good as we strive to climb our way back into ESEA Advanced and back into the HLTV top 100.Christopher SwordFounder & Managing Director, Viperio
