Unfortunately, both of the team were eliminated today, ending their journey of this event. Fnatic went down 2:0 with NP. During the first game, Fnatic suffers from performance as NP snowball their way through victory. As for the second game, a few plays at the late game opened up a comeback hope from Fnatic, but that was not enough as a return.

With total domination from the very beginning of the second round, they scored it without a sweat as even the caster were surprised by their performance. “What a disaster everybody keeps dying everywhere”, said Merlini describing the situation of the round. Ultimately, Execration took the final round, ending the game with mega creeps.

The first match lasted for nearly an hour with close points until the very end of the round, leaving tension to everyone who’s watching. VP struggled to pick up both points, eliminating NP out the tournament. Nonetheless, NP put up a good fight against the ever-aggressive VP until the very end.
The final game of the day was nothing but “interesting”. Although Wings Gaming had a tough at the early game of the first round, Execration did not took the advantages of their dominant start and loses the mid and late game. Onto the second round, Execration couldn’t hold the game after some poor decisions making. The mistakes mirrored the results, as they couldn’t fence off Wings’ steady play, falling 2:0 against them.
