ENCE and Outsiders (ex-Virtus.pro) started their PGL Antwerp Major journey on the right note as both the teams won their first games of the day. ENCE were the heavy favourites vs 9z team and it was evident by the scoreline as ENCE even got the map of their choice and went 16-7.
Outsiders cut it really close, as star player YEKINDAR was underwhelming but the others stepped up to win 16-14.
MIBR and Outsiders locked horns on Dust2 and the map was neck and neck throughout, with both teams having hot streaks. The first half ended 8-7 in Outsider’s favour and after the switch to the CT side, they looked set for an easy win with the score reading 15-9.
Made in Brazill then bounced back, with great fragging from JOTA and got 5 of the last 6 rounds, but the last round proved too much and they fell 16-14.
ENCE on the other hand had it relatively easy, after a closely contested first half which 9z led at one point.
But after the initial flurry, ENCE gained control and ended the CT side leading 9-6, courtesy of Spinx’s massive 22 frags and just 6 deaths. Onto the T side they just lost one roudn and Spinx continued his tear, helped by maden to help his side to a 16-7 win and a 1-0 start at PGL Antwerp Major 2022.
ENCE and Outsiders will be in the 1-0 bracket alongside Team Vitality, Bad News Eagles, G2, Astralis, forZe and Team Spirit.
MIBR and 9z will be in the 0-1 bracket with Eternal Fire, Renegades, IHC, Complexity, Team Liquid and Imperial.
