theScore esports Daily is a once-a-day briefing covering the top news stories from around the world of esports.

StarLadder reportedly hosting next CS:GO Major in Berlin

StarLadder will be hosting the next CS:GO Major, reports Dexerto's Jarek "DeKay" Lewis.

Citing unnamed sources, DeKay reports the event itself is expected to take place in Berlin, Germany, will boast an English in-house production staff, and will happen sometime in Fall 2019.

Despite having hosted a series of premier events in the past, this would mark the first time that StarLadder will have a chance to organize a Major.

North victorious over Na'Vi at GG.Bet ICE Challenge

They may have missed the Major, but North scored a much-needed moral booster today after defeating Natus Vincere in the grand finals of GG.Bet ICE Challenge.

The victory couldn't have come at a better time, with North putting up a string of poor results as of late. After failing to qualify for the upcoming IEM Katowice Major, the Danish hopefuls' Director of Esports, Jonas "whimp" Svendsen, made his thoughts known on the team's unsuccessful run via Twitter.

North's victory comes in the wake of their decision last week to bring on Torbjørn “mithR” Nyborg to replace their former coach, Alexander "ave" Holdt.

North managed to sweep Na'Vi 2-0 (16-14 on Dust II, 16-12 on Nuke) and took home $30,000, along with a much-needed boost in confidence.
