ESL One Belo Horizonte first matches revealed

The first match-ups of the $200,000 tournament in Belo Horizonte have been announced by ESL.

The first four matches of the group stage, which will feature two groups of four teams, will see FaZe go up against Torqued and SK face Space Soldiers in Group A, while mousesports and BIG will face Não Tem Como and Liquid, respectively, in Group B.

SK's first match will be against Space Soldiers

FaZe, who have announced they will be competing with Jorgen "⁠cromen⁠" Robertsen at ECS right before flying to Brazil, will be hoping to take home the prize to increase their victory count towards the IEM Grand Slam prize of $1 million to three. Meanwhile mousesports will surely have a stand-in in Brazil, as they will be fielding Jordan "⁠n0thing⁠" Gilbert in lieu of Tomáš "⁠oskar⁠" Šťastný.

Meanwhile, the home crowd will have lots to cheer for, hoping locals SK make it out of Group A, while Lincoln "⁠fnx⁠" Lau's Não Tem Como fight in Group B.

The first round of matches will be:

Group A
Europe FaZe vs. North America Torqued
Brazil SK vs. Turkey Space Soldiers
Group B
Europe mousesports vs. Brazil Não Tem Como
Germany BIG vs. North America Liquid
United States Jordan 'n0thing' Gilbert

It would be different if we could have an insight what's going on. >announce you're back >still miss 2 big tournaments If there's something wrong with his father then it's expected but we just don't know.

3 replies
What gives us the right to know? Why does it matter? The fact of the matter is that Olof isn't comfortable playing atm, and we as the fans owe it to him to trust that he needs this - maybe he thought he was ready and things were getting better, but something changed In short, we don't really have the right to know, and we need to have faith in him and hope things get better for him

Group B would bring higher chance to Ss if we could have a chance to replace Ss with Mouz or Liquid but even in Group A; they have the potential to become the 2nd after Faze since SK is too vulnerable right now.

Final BIG vs NTC BIG to revenge for PGL Krakow
2018-06-10 15:57
to be fair with current results of attending teams it should be: 8-7th Ntc, Torqued 5-6th Big, SS 3-4th Mouz, SK 2nd Faze 1st Liquid I still believe that SK can show a good Form and make it to finals it also depends on how will liquid and Faze play
