Just outside the center of the Polish city of Katowice stands a concrete UFO. Over the past four days, many children, several teenagers and some adults have flocked in to watch their heroes play computer games. Everyone has come to see the World Championship in Counter Strike.
Over the past two weeks, 24 teams have fought for a place in the final. Only two teams remain, and 11,000 expectant audiences are ready to watch them go to war. On one side are the five Finnish underdogs from the team ENCE. On the other, the Danish superpower in the form of Astralis, who have eliminated all competition and right now is the world's best team.
