dignitas, ex-Titan to GS Global Cup
dignitas and ex-Titan have secured the final two spots at the Game Show Global eSports Cup finals, kicking off on Thursday.
With Astralis and EnVyUs already through to the Global eSports Club finals after reaching the last-four stage of the European division, the final two spots at the event in Lithuania were determined by the remaining quarter-final matches, pitting mousesports against dignitas and Ninjas in Pyjamas against ex-Titan.
dignitas and mouz had recently faced each other at DreamHack Open Leipzig, with the Danes claiming a 2-0 win in what was a one-sided affair.

Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and company went into tonight's match looking for revenge, but they were once again outplayed by dignitas, who relied on the fragging power of Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke and Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye to cruise to a 2-0 victory (16-9 on de_cache and 16-3 on de_cobblestone).
