ESEA v FaceIt v CEVO – Best CSGO MatchMaking Service

ESEA v FaceIt v CEVO

If you have lost the drive to play matchmaking because you have reached Global Elite or you are fed up of hackers and griefers then I recommend you check out these services. ESEA, Faceit & CEVO offer a completely different environment and can change the way the game plays. If you are fed up with MM then you can either start pugging against really great players, search for a team and play scrims or try to get into leagues. There are third-party party companies that offer such services: ESEA, FACEIT & CEVO. After having a large amount of experience on all 3 services I can give a good insight into what these services do well and what they don’t do well, making sure you get the service that works best for you.

ESEA v FaceIt v CEVO Summary

If you have the money to pay for ESEA, FaceIt or CEVO then 100% do it, it is worth it.

ESEA has the best anti-cheat in the game, however, they have the most intrusive client. Furthermore, ESEA has the best servers. ESEA also has the best players from Day 1 who are willing to work hard and play properly.

FaceIt has FPL which can be a huge factor, so if you want to play with the pros and become a professional gamer then FaceIt may be for you if you are from EU. However, FPL isn’t very big in NA, so choose ESEA who offer Rank-S. This is the equivalent of FPL and will allow you to play for the NA Pro Players like Fallen & n0thing.
