After another day of fighting, we have the standings for Group A and our first two quarter-finalists and one semi-finalist. NiP Gaming
started the day out strong with a convincing victory over Cloud9
before an equally strong destruction of The MongolZ
. A much closer game was to be their final of the day, however it was still another victory for the Swedish team against Envyus
, securing the number 1 spot in the group and their ticket to the semi-finals.
The day was not so straightforward for all though, as some results included yet another tense overtime, this time between SK Gaming
, in which the Danes were triumphant. This win, and another, could not save them however due to the previous day's results leaving them one point shy of making the quarter-finals. Instead, we end up with both SK Gaming and Cloud9 moving through.
Group B found its winner in Faze Clan
as, despite starting the day with a crushing 16-3 loss to Gambit Esports
, a win over Team Liquid
in the last game of the day was enough to see them top the group and move straight through to the semi-finals. Gambit themselves found a spot in the quarter-finals with two victories for the day, including the aforementioned demolition of Faze and a win over Renegades
in their last game.
Despite incredible performances at this event, Renegades could not scrape together enough points to hold on to a spot in the quarter-finals as Optic Gaming
pull off a hard fought victory over G2 Esports
to send Renegades home.
