On December 4-9, the finals of ESL Pro League 8 were held in Odense, Denmark. Can you imagine this chanting of winning Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander's people? Astralis once again dominates, winning two best podium places. Let us remind you that before that triumph they won Esports Championship Series 6 season.
