StarSeries i-League Season 5 playoffs bracket drawn

After the last round of the Swiss group stage, the organizers drew the quarter-final matchups of StarSeries i-League Season 5.

The last round of the Swiss group stage saw Natus Vincere, NRG, and North secure the last three spots in the quarter-finals, defeating AVANGAR, Renegades, and GODSENT, respectively.

After the last match, the playoffs draw took place on the main stream. In the first part of the draw, SK — as one of the two 3-0 teams — were matched up against Natus Vincere (3-2), with AGO and North placed on the other side of the bracket.

SK will go up against Natus Vincere in the quarter-finals

The remaining 3-2 team, NRG, will face their compatriots Liquid in the quarter-finals, while mousesports will lock horns with NiP as two teams who finished the group stage with a 3-1 record.

The bracket and tomorrow's schedule looks as follows:

09:00  North America Liquid vs. United States NRG
12:00 Poland AGO  vs. Denmark North
15:00 Europe mousesports  vs. Sweden NiP
18:00 Brazil SK vs. Ukraine Natus Vincere

North have only won two minor DreamHack-events so it's not like they have been 'good' the way you'd say about teams like SK, FaZe, Fnatic or Astralis at their primes. But North have been absolutely terrible and honestly a big joke in the last half year or so, but the last month they have looked like a top 10 team again.

Obviously a joke, but the loss essentially made sure they got a really easy passage for the final, when you take into account that this is a 250k+ tournament. North to beat AGO and then TL/NRG would not be that big of a surprise imo.

The reason NiP will loose the game against mouseport because, mouseport have 3 strong maps mirrage, nuke and dust 2 and nip struggles on those map.
2018-06-01 19:51

Netherlands FastSk1LLz 
NiP bans Mirage, Mouz bans Cache? NiP picks Overpass Mouz pick train? NiP removes Dust 2 decider inferno or nuke. They aint gonna play Mirage tho
2018-06-01 19:54
Wrong. Nip is very bad on mirrage while mouse has very good win rate and quite confident on the map. Dust2 Nip never played. So mouseport will choose either dust2 or mirrage.
2018-06-01 19:57

Netherlands FastSk1LLz 
Like i said tho, NiP gonna ban Mirage, so they aint gonna play that. but yeh im not sure which map Mouz is gonna pick, thought about train and dust 2.

NiP has a 29% winrate on Nuke in the last 6 months mouz has 75% winrate so why would NiP be so stupid and pick it?

Nuke is the hardest map to play with a new lineup (psrt of the reason vp and nip were extremely good on it). Nip should be fine on it now, 3 months ago the roster had barely formed. Rotations are the biggest part of this map so nip should have gotten their comms fine by now.

same if they don't ban it, it gets picked
2018-06-02 14:06
Mousesports' mirage looks shaky lately IMO. AGO picked it and won.
2018-06-01 20:04
Agree but they won over navi recently which was navi's pick. They are very good on the map historically whereas nip is quite shacky and scared on the map bro
2018-06-01 20:07
True. NiP can't be trusted on any map rn sadly. :(. FeelsBadMan.

Overpass? Cache? Inferno? They are good on train too..

well the match went even weirder. Nip dominated mirage and then rip on inferno. Can't help but think if they had won that 3v1 on chrisj they probs would've comeback.
2018-06-02 22:04
They walked into Chris' spray. Should have went for the Cache punish pick but GGs.

Germany FuuRy09 
thats why they will ban mirage as first move NiP bans Mirage Mouz bans Cobble NiP picks Overpass Mouz picks Dust2 They are both solid but not amazing on the last three, so it's hard to predict NiP removes Inferno Mouz removes Nuke Train was left over

They're decent on cache but absolute dogshit on overpass. Pretty easy choice especially because nip play overpass an not cache

I feel like dennis isn't making so much of an impact in terms of frags as he was when he first joined NiP. Initially it was as if he was carrying them in some sense but now it feels like he is just a solid IGL whilst REZ and f0rest are making the most frags.

So sad for s1mple Vincere and Coldzera Gaming meeting this soon. Coldzera is well known for shutting down stars on other teams. He just can't allow s1mple to kill everyone before he gets a hold on him, like it happened with Niko the last time they faced Faze. If there ever was a day fallen needed to come alive, it certainly has come.
