Yesterday's game day was not very interesting, but there were still a couple of intriguing matches.
Natus Vincere and AGO opened yesterday's gaming day. NAVI confidently won the fight against AGO on Mirage, finishing it with a result of 16-9, but Nuke proved to be much more difficult for Born to Win than its predecessor. There Natus Vincere barely beat AGO, losing 13 rounds to the Poles.
There were a lot of interesting things going on in the BIG vs Heroic match. For example, on the third map, for the first time, two knife kills were carried out in a short time by two teams. Nuke in general was very intriguing as it came down to the third map and many viewers thought the meeting would be brought to overtime. Despite this, Heroic managed to put the squeeze on their opponents and finish this fight with a score of 16-14 with an overall score of 2-1.
The match between ENCE and G2 Esports was also intriguing. Already on the first map, the teams clashed with each other in a tough battle and brought the game to overtime. As a result, the Finns defeated G2 with a score of 19-16 and after that they, having received a moral boost and confidence, completed what they had begun, beating the opponent on the second map with a score of 16-10.
Thanks to this result, the team was able to overtake NAVI and take the first place in Group A in Europe. G2 Esports after that took the fifth position in the standings and now their chances of reaching the playoffs are decreasing.
In North America, we have seen babies beaten. The batter was 100 Thieves, and the victim was Chaos Esports Club. The first map ended with a score of 16-3 in favor of 100T, and the second ended with a score of 16-5 in favor of the same 100 Thieves. Thus, the teams took part in one of the fastest matches of the tournament.
Today we are expecting matches with OG, GODSENT, Complexity Gaming, Fnatic, Astralis, mousesports, Cloud9 and Triumph.
