Eleague Boston Major — The New Challengers Day Two Complete

1
The second day of the Eleague Boston Major has come to an end and our sixteen teams are split into three groups, those who are 2-0, those who are 1-1 and those who are 0-2.
Kicking off the day we had Flipsid3 Tactics taking on Team Liquid, two teams who lost their day one matches and were 0-1. It was a case of the team with five who were demolished 16-4 looking for redemption against the team with a coach as a stand-in who came close against the second best team in the world on day 1. It was the North Americans of Liquid who came out on top, as their young talent in Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken and Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski had the firepower to blow away the opposition. The stand-in Wilton "Zews" Prado put up a good showing himself with some important plays and finishing 12-20 whilst the lowest opposition was 11-23 and the next two only had 13 kills.


The biggest blowout of the major so far was next on the list, with Mousesports slaughtering Natus Vincere 16-2. Chris "chrisJ" de Jong was very much on top of his game with 113 ADR and a score of 23-6, whilst only Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev managed to pull a barely positive scoreline for the Natus Vincere side.


It was the turn of the Space Soldiers to find their feet after their opening loss, whilst Avangar were looking to build on their promising, yet fruitless, performance from day one. Whilst much of the Turkish side failed to back up their star Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş on day one, they turned up today and as such took the match 16-9 on Mirage. Timur "Buster" Tulepov once again showed some signs of potential but ultimately it couldn't afford them a victory.


Next up, two more teams with a 0-1 record from day one, Renegades taking on Team Envyus. The two stars for the Renegades side very much turned up, Keith "NAF" Markovic and Noah "Nifty" Francis posting 1.62 and 1.56 ratings and topping the scoreboard, whilst the same could not be said for Envyus who at best pulled dead even K-D's. The same map causing the French side problems from day one, as they lose 6-16.


A messy affair took place next, with Flash Gaming taking on Quantum Bellator Fire on Inferno. Both sides showed signs of promise in their opening matches, despite finishing day one 0-1, however when up against each other it seemed all structure flew out of the window as seemingly endless rounds were traded back and forth in the first half in short bursts. The Quantum Bellator Fire side managed to find some stability eventually in the second half, overcoming the Flash side 16-13 despite YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng dropping 33 kills in the game.


Two teams who will have been feeling good after day one victories were up next, Sprout taking on Cloud9 was always likely to be a rough match for the European side. True to expectations, Jake "Stewie2k" Yip lead the scoreboard as his team took a dominating 16-5 win on Inferno ending with a K-D ratio of +14.


It wouldn't be a Counter-Strike Major without at least one sizeable upset, and this one was a monster. Vega Squadron felled the titans Faze Clan with a barely contested 16-6 scoreline on Inferno. You talk about Faze having enough stars that one will always show up, however you could look all night but the skies were cloudy today for the super-team. Instead a solid team effort from the Vega Squadron side got the job done, moving them on to an unexpected 2-0 scoreline going into day three. I know there are plenty of 3-0 pickems ruined tonight.


The final match of the day saw two more 1-0 teams clash with Misfits taking on G2 Esports. What could have been an interesting tactical battle ended up a fairly one sided affair, with the two most important men for the French side showing up most. Stars Richard "shox" Papillon and Kenny "kennyS" Schrub are integral to the success of this side and they pulled it out of the bag in this match, and they move into day three 2-0 with a 16-5 victory.
