ELEAGUE Group C recap

The third week of ELEAGUE Season 1 is done and dusted and as always, it is time for us to recap the matchups and highlight the best performances.

Group C in ELEAGUE Season 1 featured Astralis, who had to play their first four matches with Danny "zonic" Sørensen as Finn "karrigan" Andersen was having visa problems, Fatih "gob b" Dayik's NRG, another Danish team SK, and CLG who used their coach Faruk "pita" Pita as their fifth player.

Astralis faced NRG in their first match and won 16-12 on Cache and 16-14 on Train. Nicolai "device" Reedtz feasted off of NRG players, averaging a 1.58 rating alongside a 57:30 combined score. gob b's 0.63 rating did not help NRG's case.


device should be happy with the results 

device & company had a much easier time against CLG as they beat the North Americans twice, giving up only eight rounds in total. James "hazed" Cobb's 0.32 rating on Train was his fifth worst rating on LAN.

The Danish derby between Astralis and SK saw teams splitting maps as SK won 16-6 on Train while Astralis secured Overpass with a 16-7 final score. Emil "Magisk" Reif posted a 1.55 rating and a 25:13 score on the first map but device performed even better on Overpass as he had a 1.93 rating and a 27:12 score.

SK performed another exchange of maps, this time against CLG. Despite winning Nuke after a 12-3 T-side, the Danes lost 14-16 on Overpass. Magisk kept putting up monstrous numbers and had a rating of 1.94 on Nuke. hazed was the most influential player in CLG's map win with a 29:17 score.


The statistical leaders of Group C 

NRG was dominated by SK on both matches as they bent the knee to Andreas "MODDII" Fridh's 2.00 rating performance on Cobblestone. gob b's team picked up their only win against CLG with whom they traded victories.

Astralis struggled against NRG in the semi-finals, just like in their group matches, but came out ahead once again. (16-13 on Overpass and 19-16 on Cache). NRG's new transfer Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz was the only player that had positive numbers but his 1.19 rating showing was not enough. device was the man of the match with a 54:42 score and a 1.25 rating.

The second semi-final was between CLG and SK. Despite Magisk's efforts, CLG secured the 2-1 win after losing the first map. The last map, Overpass, which finished 16-14 in favor of CLG almost saw CLG choke but they managed to retain their 12-3 halftime lead.


Kjaerbye showed up in the grand final 

The first map in the grand final (Mirage) went as expected with Astralis winning it 16-7 owing to the fact that all their players had more than a 1.16 rating. Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye was on the frontlines on Dust2 but CLG managed to secure it in overtime (16-19). With Kjaerbye's 1.53 rating performance on Overpass, Astralis won the map (16-11), the series and the group.

Group C MVP: Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz

As his team won the group, the Danish superstar averaged a 1.33 rating. He had the second most kills per round (0.89) and had more than a kill in 54.5% of the rounds. He had success with opening kills as he won 67.1% of his opening duels and won five clutches. With his superstar performance, Astralis won't be easy to stop.

Final standings of Group C:

1. – Denmark Astralis: 11 points (5p GS + 2p SF + 4p GF) + A spot in the ELEAGUE playoffs
2. – United States CLG: 4 points (2p GS + 2p SF) + A spot at the Last Chance Qualifier
3. – Denmark SK: 4 points (4p GS)
4. – Germany NRG: 1 point (1p GS)

*GS: group stage – SF: semi-finals – GF: grand finals

NRG is done for the first season of ELEAGUE while SK has a good chance of making it to the Last Chance Qualifier as the two third-placed teams with the most points will earn a spot.

ELEAGUE will continue next Tuesday with Group D and you can visit our tournament page for more information.

SK has the same amount of points as CLG, yet CLG has another chance. That basically means that noone of the games matter except for the semifinals and finals in the group...
2016-06-11 17:10
you don't understand the format at all if you think that. currently SK is the highest scoring 3rd place team and as of right now has made it into the LCQ. because SK has 4 points and renegades got 3, optic has now been officially eliminated
