The CIS-squads managed to prove their high gaming-level, among which — Na’Vi and Gambit Esports. In turn, FlipSid3, in a tough game, lost out to Team Liquid with the result of [14:16], losing a right for a possible mistake. The same might be said about HellRaisers, who were defeated by mousesports.
A slight splash was made by the countering between fnatic and North. The promising Danish team lost the second match, so now they are a step aside from the elimination from EL Major. While their compatriots from Astralis bounced back after their yesterday's loss to GODSENT, prevailing over the not-less-powerful OpTic Gaming on the same old de_train.
