Despite its status as one of the favorites of the tournament, the team was defeated in the first confrontation, where paiN Gaming competed against CeRq and his teammates. Nevertheless, the fight was full and contains three cards out of three possible. PaiN Gaming started the fight with a triumph on Nuke, after which Evil Geniuses brought the game to a draw on Vertigo. At Inferno, EG were able to take 11 rounds from their opponents, but this was the end of their struggle. It is noteworthy that two cards were played with a score of 16-11, and one with a score of 16-12. This suggests that the teams are at a similar playing level. Is it so?
