EG after having a fairly tale run at ESL One New York, soon faced a humiliating defeat at the hands of Mousesports. EG were eliminated after a 2-0 defeat against the European side.
The first half of the first map was a close one with an 8-7 scoreline favouring EG but Mousesports had the second half completely under their control to take Mirage with a 16-10 scoreline, David “frozen” Čerňanský leading the scoreboard with 27 kills. Mousesports won the second map 22-20 in the second overtime, with Özgür “woxic” Eker topping the charts with 36 kills.
On the other side of the tournament where two European sides clashed in the colours of G2 and Fnatic, Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson was having one of the finest matches of his life. The Swed gave the French a run for their money taking the series 2-0.
Fnatic dominated their way through both matches with 16-4 and 16-5 scoreline, JW was the top fragger for the first map while Krimz showed his masterclass in the second map with 26 kills in the first half and finished the map with 35 frags, 175.9 ADR, and a 2.82 rating. This is the Swedes’ first tournament with their new lineup. The organization brought Robin “flusha” Rönnquist and Maikil “Golden” Selim back in September.
