EnVyUs, SK move on in Dallas
fnatic are eliminated from the ESL Pro League Season 5 finals as EnVyUs and SK Gaming finish second and third in Group A, respectively.
With G2 already through to the playoffs thanks to the head-to-head advantage over SK, fnatic and EnVyUs, the second and third group places were determined by a series of MR3 clashes between the tied teams.
It all began with a Train clash between EnVyUs, the surprise package of the tournament so far, and fnatic. The first two MR3 matches failed to determine a winner as both teams picked up three rounds, but then the Frenchmen stepped up and won four in a row to take the match, 10-6.

fnatic then made way for SK, who tried to bring down EnVyUs, also on Train. The first round went SK's way, but then the Europeans replied thanks to a great AWP kill from Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer in a 1v1 against Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo.
That round sparked a great run from EnVyUs, who added three more rounds to their tally to win the tiebreaker, 4-1, and secure the second spot in the group.

The third place was then decided by an MR3 tiebreaker between fnatic and SK Gaming, also on Train. Starting out on the CT side, fnatic had no response to SK's double AWP setup, with the scoreline blooming to a 3-0 advantage for the Brazilians.
