Yesterday was an extraordinary situation. Renegades and ORDER started a confrontation with each other and after the RNG won on Vertigo with a score of 16-14, many of the players at home lost the light. In this regard, it was decided to postpone the meeting for another time. Today the teams fought again and on Dust 2 the battle ended again in favor of Renegades - they won with a result of 16-10. By the way, in America the match between Chaos Esports Club and Team Liquid was also postponed to another day.
This means that RNG became the first grand finalist, and ORDER used their right to make a mistake and went down to the lower bracket, where they will fight with the winner of the meeting between Chiefs Esports Club and Avant Gaming.
Today in the countries of Oceania, another duel will take place with the participation of Chiefs Esports Club and Avant Gaming. Matches will also be held in Asia with the participation of Beyond Esports and Invictus Gaming, as well as in Europe and North America. Teams such as G2 Esports, OG, Astralis, NiP, Evil Geniuses and FURIA Esports will play there.
ESL One Cologne 2020 Online in Europe and North America runs from August 18th to 30th. 16 European teams share a total prize pool of $ 325,000, while 8 representatives from the Americas participate in the $ 135,000 split.
