Hosted by Pinnacle and Relog Media from March 3rd until April 4th, the Pinnacle Cup sees 32 teams compete across three stages for a chance to win $100,000 between the 1st and 2nd placers!

Only the top two players overall will win the prize money!

After forming in 2018, UMX Gaming are on an upward hill! Climbing the ladder to the big leagues, UMX placed 4th at the recent OMEN WGR European Challenge in January of this year. The win is a huge achievement for the team, with matches involving a mix of qualifiers, invitations, and previous 1st placers.
With a requirement to place either 1st or 2nd to get to the Closed Qualifiers, UMX were up against 15 other teams in the first batch of Open Qualifiers on January 11th, winning with a 16:9 against TimeChasers in the first round. Not too dissimilarly, they smashed Infinite Gaming with a 16:11 soon after! Their match against Good Game took them out of this round with hardly a devastating loss at 14:16 and set their place at 4th.
A few days later, on January 13th, they got their second chance at the Closed Qualifiers. They started the day off right with an epic defeat of Pbl6aJlka at 16:3 and carried this forward against Pompa Team at 16:9. The next match, against GROND, would determine their place at the Closed Qualifiers…
They won with an impressive 16:10, solidified their 2nd place slot in the second set of Open Qualifiers and a one way ticket to the Closed Qualifiers!
Now only competing against seven other teams, UMX had to place between 1st and 4th to make it to the final tournament. Starting on January 27th and finishing on January 28th, UMX started with a match against Saints, another team that qualified in their second go at the Open Qualifiers. Now defining the stakes of the game, UMX still grabbed that win with a 16:14. Upper Bracket Round 2 saw them facing Sangal Esports, a team that came first in the first OPen Qualifiers and went straight to the Closed Qualifiers position on January 11th. You would think there might be some pressure on UMX at this point but if there was, it certainly doesn’t show with yet another win at 16:14! This placed the team at 2nd and qualified them for the final tournament.
On January 30th, UMX started the two-day tournament alongside seven other teams, only three of which also came from the Closed Qualifier games. Now also competing for a cut of the 15,000€ cash prize are three established teams including Movistar Riders, SAW, and SINNERS Esports. As well as this, the challenge also has OMEN Retakes Season 1’s 1st place winner, GTZ Bulls Esports, amongst its participants.
Starting off against SINNERS Esports, UMX Gaming truly pulled it out of the bag and seized an incredible win at 16:12! Now versing Movistar Riders, UMX unfortunately took the L with a 10:16 but still captured Most Assists in the match. Despite the loss, it wasn’t over for the team. They dropped down to the Lower Bracket where it’s still possible to win and went against OMEN’s last 1st placers, GTZ Bulls Esports. Once again, their will to win proved entirely durable and they crushed GTZ with a 2:1 and the Most Damage. Now up against the Lyngby Vikings, UMX Gaming had to accept their losses at 0:2.
Despite the challenges and extremely talented competitors, UMX went home with a 4th place slot, 1,000€, and now an established name for themselves! After defeating most Open Qualifiers, several Closed Qualifiers, a previous OMEN challenge winner, and even one of the invited teams, UMX Gaming came in on one of the top spots at the OMEN WGR European Challenge.
We are Champions of the CS:GO League Season 1. We won the finals in a dominating fashion. We took down Train 16:5 and Infernot 16:3 against Hell’s Satans. ConsistenZ takes MVP for the whole Tournament.
After a really good start in the first week where we constantly reached top 5 spots, we ended up with a disappointing 9th place. We will do our best to fix the issues we had and work hard to get to the top.
We are looking for motivated players with big goals to create a team around. uMx Gaming consists out of a excellent PUBG and upcoming CSGO team. If you are interested and want more info join our Discord and message iamsuperdry.
