Group B ends; SK, C9, NiP through
With the remaining three matches of Group B played out, all playoffs teams have been decided, as SK clinched fist place, Cloud9 came second and NiP third.
At the end of the day, three matches were being played at the same time to determine the three teams going through to playoffs from Group B.
SK were in prime position to secure first place in the group, but they began with a disappointing Terrorist side on Cobble against NRG, only getting five rounds on the offence while Peter "ptr" Gurney was having a great game.
With a won pistol round, the Brazilians began clawing back. NRG barely contested any of the rounds while SK's defence was on point, as Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's team won 11 rounds in a row for 16-10 and first place in the group.
SK clinched first place in Group B
The battle between NiP and FaZe went down on Overpass, where the Swedes got off to an amazing start as Terrorists, picking up a 9-2 lead before the half ended at 11-4. With a won pistol round, Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and company had little to no trouble closing out the map and eliminating FaZe at 16-7.
Winning a pistol round on top of it, Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's team got up to 12-6, but a strong defence from Cloud9 allowed them to climb back to 12-12. Dignitas managed to win one of the next two rounds, but Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and company continued dominating in the remaining three for a 16-13 victory.
