January 25th, 2017 02:26

As the third round of the Swiss format came to a close in Atlanta, ELEAGUE have drawn the match-ups of the fourth round, which will see three more teams advance and three teams get eliminated.

Day three of play at the ELEAGUE Major saw Virtus.pro and Natus Vincere advancing to playoffs with a perfect record, while HellRaisers and FlipSid3 exited the competition in last place.


Astralis will face SK for a spot in the playoffs

Tomorrow the remaining two rounds will be played, with the fourth deciding three more playoffs teams as well as three eliminated teams.

Here are the match-ups of the fourth round:

16:00  Denmark North vs. France G2 *
17:15 France Envy vs. Sweden fnatic **
18:30 Europe mousesports vs. United States Liquid *
19:45 Sweden GODSENT vs. North America OpTic *
21:00 Brazil SK vs. Denmark Astralis **
22:15 Kazakhstan Gambit vs. Europe FaZe **

* Loser gets eliminated in groups with a 1-3 record
** Winner advances to playoffs with a 3-1 record

good matches coming up! none of these matches are one sided SK vs Astralis looks to be exciting

Well they didn't "pick" dust2 they just didn't banned it. Maybe an overpass would be more even, although I think SK would lose anyway.
2017-01-25 13:46
dust2 is a well known map from navi, doesnt make sense keeping it. would be even better letting nuke (unless they really didnt play it at all... but im pretty sure navi sucks ass at nuke). banning mirage was a huge miistake, same for nuke. they would have made navi chose beteween banning mirage/train/OP or nuke. No1 knows if SK is good at nuke or not (same for navi) it would be a risk. But since "old" cs go times , players from this navi set up are known to be shit in nuke. Why not risk?

I agree that SK shouldn`t have banned nuke, Na`vi would ban it probably letting train go through.
2017-01-25 18:42
pretty risky bet on SK , i cheer for SK , gave them a vote of confidence vs Navi today , they got totally rapped , just proved that my concerns were right , team is not ready , they wont win this major unless we see huge individual plays. if i had to bet i'd go for astralis, but i hope im wrong xD

you've got to be mental to think that SK will win
2017-01-25 02:32
they will!
2017-01-25 02:32
No, remember they have fox XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD #RUNAST
2017-01-25 03:37
HAHAHHAHA If you watched today's game it was pretty clear that fox was not the problem. I think it's hard to win from astralis, but then imo depends the map, I truely believe that is going to be train( again for astralis) and it might go to 3-1 Astralis and 2-2 SK
2017-01-25 04:30
When SK gets beaten out of the tournament they will most likely say that "..Fox wasn't our fully player, he was a stand-in so it was really hard for us to have the synergy that [team that beat SK] has, I think they will go and win the major." True though, SK's problems lies with TACO, fox and FalleN

ez optic and liquid
2017-01-25 02:26
Some teams are continuously getting lucky/unlucky. Fnatic has been VERY lucky. G2 has been VERY unlucky. SK could get fucked here too. Someone is going to have to face Astralis/SK in elimination...tough luck. So happy liquid and optic ended up with good draws again. My picks are North Fnatic Liquid OpTic Astralis FaZe All of these games could go either way though, with optic game being the most one sided but still not by much especially considering bad form against f3.
2017-01-25 02:30
pretty nice analise
2017-01-25 02:33
I'd pick the same besides Faze Gambit which is really open

this is major, not qualifiers. north has been demonstrating their choke side. accept it

2017-01-25 02:33

fnx | 
Brazil Beicom 
but their latest games have proven different. I bet on the pick'em challenge both of them were going to pass, but g2 only got hard opponents. north's opponents were kinda easy tbh
2017-01-25 02:36
yeah but you cant say that they will lose to g2 only because they played bad vs HR... this kinda of logic doesnt exist
2017-01-25 02:37
if g2 bans train-nuke i think they will past them
2017-01-25 02:36

I think G2's nuke is better than north's

2017-01-25 02:42
watch their 10 last games head to head but it will be an close and beautifull match here i guess
2017-01-25 02:44
g2 has to ban cobble and train... nuke is always a clownfiesta, the team who make less mistakes wins
2017-01-25 02:39
dignitas is good on train and wins 3 times against g2
2017-01-25 02:39
wtf? train is dignitas permaban.
2017-01-25 02:50
Dig have 2 perma bans, i believe they are train and nuke. They change bans depending on the oponent. Id say they will ban nuke due to g2 playing vp close on nuke

I never said SK were favourite to win the major though. I just think this match up is the hardest one that could have been drawn.

Not nessesary,fnatic and gambit would have quite an fair chance to beat them aswell.

Fallen's without awp,and most probably,SK might go out in group stages actually.
2017-01-25 02:42
Its a serious possibility since there are teams like G2, North and Optic in 1-2. I would prefer to see Fallen awping rather than Fox but Fox isn't comfortable with rifle. Shame really.
2017-01-25 02:43
nV & Mouz qualifing to Major by beating, Vega, Spirit & Tyloo/ Mouz beating a sleeping IMT. Now their wins comes from: nV: SHITSENT & Trashquid and facing shitty fnatic MOuz: HR, facing Liquid. GG
2017-01-25 02:28
If EnVyUs make it to the playoffs, thats good because the French super-team will have Legends status for the next Major. Nobody gives a shit about G2's fate, though I feel bad about their hard draws.

If they shuffle, Envy's 3 members will be in that team. So, whatever their team is, they will be Legend in the next major. :)

2017-01-25 02:45
FaZe and EnVyUs were 1-1 so it is rather hard to face SK, Na`Vi or VP because those teams were 2-0 at least we don't see mouz or gambit fluking two bo1's and going to playoffs also, astralis played GODSENT, OpTic and G2 SK played HR, FaZe and Na`Vi

Sad to see SK falling apart like this. Confidence has always been an issue for brazilian players and athletes. Fallen was someone I had never seen underperform. Ever (and I'm including him at 1.6). Now, after finally being chosen as the #2 player of the world, he plays like a potato. He has to get his sh#t together as fast as he can.

10$ on sk because of the odds. not really sure. they always do an impossible map against Astralis. normally because of devCHOKEice.

When was the last time device choked lol? And when was the last time he wasn't the reason that they were in a position for it to matter if he choked.

Astralis are playing well because ir him. If he doesn't show up they will lose

You can't put the entire teams success on him, that's entirely unfair. He hasn't choked in a while and the last time he supposedly did it was only by his merit that they were even that far in the tourney anyway.

Uh, no?
2017-01-25 15:40
yeah i know xD just pissed off about my pick em
2017-01-25 15:41
Should have picked Na'vi and F3 like a sane person
2017-01-25 15:55
I picked navi as 3-0 but cant pick any CIS team as 0-3 cuz i always cheer for them. Other 7 would be decent if not this match-up (i picked none of these preshuffle teams so 1 more wrong pick for me xD)
2017-01-25 15:59
I picked nV over North and the rest were pretty standard, although I'm just as biased as you are because i love nV and the french scene in general. Astralis SK VP nV Gambit Faze Fnc.

Envy vs Fnatic nooo this matchup is gonna fuck pick up so much. Fuck this rng fiesta
2017-01-25 07:19
Unless shox & ScreaM show up : North will win. For the other matchups : - fnatic (if the guys from fnatic show up and stop doing shit) - Liquid - OpTic - Astralis - Gambit
2017-01-25 09:31
What's amazing about this day is that every match can go either way (except Astralis vs SK maybe, cant see SK winning). Dont bet my house on any of the other matchups.

Can wait to see how fnc will rekt nV lul (if they will stop doing mistakes and if will be a good map veto)
2017-01-25 12:24
any one see the possibility of a French death match. if fanatic beat envy and G2 win we could see g2 vs envy for a legend spot.
