Can Nigma Galaxy live up to the hype? – ESL Impact Season 2 Finals preview

esl impact season 2

After seven weeks of group stages and qualifiers, ESL Impact Season 2 Finals are about to kick off in Jönköping, Sweden. The flagship tournament of the #GGFORALL initiative, 8 of the best female teams in the world will be battling it out to be crowned Season 2’s champions.

ESL Impact Season 2 Final’s contenders

The favorites for the event are Nigma Galaxy. After winning both ESL Impact Valencia and Season 1 Finals, the team is both the reigning champions and the recognized best team in the world. Unbeaten in BO3 matchups since the addition of Katarína “Kat” Vašková at the beginning of the year, it would be a shock if they don’t lift the trophy this time around.

Their closest competitors at the event are FURIA. Having finished second at both Valencia and Season 1, FURIA will be out for revenge in Sweden. The Brazilians are the best team in their region, but luck has not been kind to them thus far on the international stage. With a strong T side, FURIA are well equipped to steamroll the current CT meta. Just like their male counterparts, they’re fast, aggressive, and the most fun you’ll get while watching a game of Counter-Strike.

NOFEAR5 are your dark horses for the ESL Impact Season 2 crown. A poor performance in Season 1 saw AWPer Victoria “Victoria” Ukasova return, and the team hasn’t looked back since. A high-pressure match versus NAVI Javelins saw them qualify for the event, so we know pressure won’t get to them, can they be the team to rain on Nigma’s Galaxy’s parade?


NA’s greatest hope for the event, as always, is CLG Red. A legendary organization in female CSGO, CLG Red went under a rebuild following disappointing results earlier in the year. With the additions of Vivienne “BiBiAhn” Quach, Coline “Kaoday” Le Floc’h, and Marissa “madss” Dasta, the newly somewhat international roster will be looking to regain their title as the best female team in the world at ESL Impact Season 2 Finals.

They’re not the only NA team at the event; Evil Geniuses Gold will be looking to spoil their fun. Signed by the organization at the beginning of the season, it hasn’t taken them long to begin threatening CLG. After a flawless season thus far, a strong performance here could see them ascend to the top of NA’s standings.

FURIA isn’t the only Brazilian team either; B4 Esports will be looking to give a strong performance in Sweden. After appearing in Season 1 under the banner of Black Dragons, they will play ESL Impact Season 2 Finals with Nadjila “poppins” Sanchez Rodrigues, who was too young last time around. Like EG Gold, B4 will be looking to mark themselves as the best in their region. Having also posted a flawless season thus far, the crown of the best in Brazil might be easy to snatch.

ATK Esports will be waving the flag for South Africa at ESL Impact Season 2 Finals. Led by AWP IGL Christin “2SSB” Brazier, the team is relatively inexperienced on the international stage. Faced with plenty of difficulties in their home region, passion and hard work have gotten them to this stage. The question is, can it take them any further?


Asia’s only hope at ESL Impact Season 2 Finals is HSG. Having been together since 2019, this team is no stranger to long-time fans. Coincidentally, 2019 was also the last time they played an international LAN, WESG, where they played as Tyloo. Lack of events back home hinders them, but they’ll be keen to show they’ve got what it takes here.
