Berlin, November 25th 2023 – We are thrilled to announce that the BIG Academy has successfully defeated ALTERNATE aTTaX in the upper-bracket final of the ESL Meisterschaft, and have secured a place at the LAN Grand Final in Hannover!
The qualification journey saw a rematch between BIG Academy and aTTaX, following their initial encounter in the group stage. The first map, Ancient, witnessed a dominant performance from BIG Academy, who secured a convincing 13:2 victory. The momentum continued on Overpass, aTTaX’s map choice.

Following their victory in the lower-bracket, aTTaX has also qualified for the grand final. This sets the stage for an exciting LAN rematch in Hannover on December 16th. The stakes are high, as the title would not only be the third consecutive ESL Meisterschaft trophy for the BIG Academy but also crown them as champions of the final ESL Meisterschaft season. This victory would be particularly momentous, considering the ESL Meisterschaft’s status as one of the longest-running esports leagues globally, which is set to be discontinued from next year.
