EliGE is the first player on our list of players to watch out for. He has been playing to his full potential so far in 2019 and has been a big part of his team's success. We are sure he will continue to play great here at ESL One Cologne 2019

Ethan from NRG might be quiet as a person, but inside the game of Counter-Strike is where the beast comes out. Ethan has helped his team climb the rankings by dominating his opponents in spectacular fashion, and should do the same at this tournament.

Vitality has also gained a lot of momentum in 2019. apEX has played very well for them and reclaimed his reputation as one of the best entry fraggers in the world. So watch out for him!

Another play we have selected for ESL One Cologne 2019 is Xyp9x. Also, known as the “Clutch Minister”, Xyp9x will put this nickname to use in hopes of beating all the other teams.
