ESL Masters 2016 is underway, the games finished on day one which concluded the draws for winner brackets and loser brackets. Day two at ESL Masters has been rough for many and a second opportunity for a few as the eliminator matches were played today at NODWIN Gaming House, Gurgaon.
The double elimination format follows the best of three rule in the loser brackets, thus the games on day two were the survival panacea for most of the teams as they had enough chances to get back into the league following their day one loss, yesterday.
The first loser bracket game between Team Overcome and Evolution Gaming concluded with the Indian side taking two maps straight without having an urge for the third one in the best-of-three series. The following game also saw Destructive 5 taking down Elements in a similar fashion, they went on to send Elements packing before defeating them 2-0.

In the other leg of loser brackets, D5 knocked Brutality out of the tournament in two successive maps, doubling their confidence. Destructive5 with Astarr were able to beat Brutality 2-0, they face Risky Gaming – again – further in the loser brackets.
