The last major CS:GO tournament of 2019 has reached the playoffs. Vitality and mousesports booked their places in the semifinals and are awaiting their opponents - Evil Geniuses, Natus Vincere, Heroic, or forZe.

Epicenter 2019 is the last CS:GO tournament of the year and it's currently underway in Moscow, Russia. Some pretty big teams are battling out for the ultimate prize of $250,000. The runner-up will earn $120,000 while the semifinalists get $40,000 each. 

Yesterday, 19 December 2019, the tournament reached playoffs and we're going to take a look at all the teams that managed to get into the quarterfinals and semis. Mousesports and Vitality have been the most impressive competitors and have booked their places in the semifinals.

As for the quarter-finals, Evil Geniuses, Natus Vincere, Heroic and forZe will get the opportunity to join mousesports and Vitality and battle out for the ultimate finals. The quarter-finals are booked for Saturday, 21 December 2019 when Heroic will play against forZe while Evil Geniuses will try to reach the semis against Natus Vincere. 

The eliminated teams are Virtus Pro and EHOME. Virtus Pro who just debuted their new lineup acquired from AVANGAR, unfortunately, lost to mousesports and forZe by 2-1 and are eliminated from the tournament.

The biggest duel of the quarterfinals is definitely the match between the two giants - Natus Vincere and Evil Geniuses. Both of these team will try their best to wrap up 2019 on a high note but with the in-form Vitality and especially mousesports that will be a pretty hard task.

Epicenter 2019 semifinals and the grand final will be held on Sunday, 22 December 2019.
