FACEIT Major New Challengers stage round four matchups set

Shortly after the third round came to an end, FACEIT revealed the fourth-round matchups of the New Challengers stage live on the stream.

Day three saw Liquid and NiP lock the first two spots in the New Legends stage after beating Vega Squadron and Astralis, respectively, in overtime matches at the beginning of the third round.

Meanwhile, the first two teams to exit the competition are Space Soldiers, who played the event with their coach, Canpolat "hardstyle" Yıldıran, standing in for Engin "ngiN" Kor, and Virtus.pro.

The 1-2 pool will see a rematch of the Asia Minor grand final between TYLOO and Renegades

The Buchholz scores of each team after round three look as follows:

2-1 pool
Denmark Astralis (6-3)
Russia Vega Squadron (6-3)
Other HellRaisers (5-4)
Denmark OpTic (4-5)
Russia Spirit (4-5)
North America Complexity (3-6)
1-2 pool
China TYLOO (6-3)
Germany BIG (5-4)
Denmark North (4-5)
Kazakhstan Gambit (4-5)
United States Rogue (4-5)
Australia Renegades (2-7)

The Buchholz seeding set up one direct matchup in each pool. As the lowest seed of the 2-1 pool, Complexity will play one of the highest seeds, Vega Squadron, as they have already met Astralis earlier in the tournament. In the 1-2 pool, the highest seeded team, TYLOO, will go up against the lowest, Renegades. The remaining teams were drawn semi-randomly.

The round four matchups are the following:

2-1 pool (winners advance to New Legends stage)
Denmark Astralis vs. Russia Spirit
Russia Vega Squadron vs. North America Complexity
Other HellRaisers vs. Denmark OpTic

1-2 pool (losers get eliminated)
China TYLOO vs. Australia Renegades
Denmark North vs. United States Rogue
Kazakhstan Gambit vs. Germany BIG

woxic is better purely based on stats but he plays at such a high sensitivity that a different setup especially with fps issues is bound to affect him

2018-09-08 01:51
no, its fun, u know he just memeing right ?
2018-09-08 02:15
And shit memes like that are not funny. 99% of the memes ppl using is not funny, just overused :/ I might just be old and not used to the internet spamming memes.

you're old :P those are the nicknames of the teams in twitch chat, in some cases for over a year.
2018-09-08 03:11
You mean " N♿rth" ? Thats fine but Nomegalulrth is rarely used wow...
2018-09-08 10:50
the one with the wheelchair is fairly new. used to be omegalul for most of 2018.
2018-09-09 22:00
Thats my point tho. Used over a year kinda makes it overused and boring imo. :) And I never watch the twitch chat cus its mostly cancer.
2018-09-08 11:51
but a meme is only a meme if it gets used over and over. what you're saying is: "i don't like memes." that's ok, but don't sugarcoat it. ;P
2018-09-09 22:09

I hope North wins and Astralis loses so we have the chance of seeing North vs Astralis in a Bo5 to see who will get to top 16. That would be intense.
2018-09-08 02:50
no chance for north, they beat astralis because they wwere saving strats and they wont save if theyre about to go out

Gambit has litteraly thrown both their losses so hard. It’s hard to support this kind of shit cs. Mir is lost and dosia is fucking washed up and should have been cut months ago. Lets hope they still kick him. And then make the move forwards.
2018-09-08 11:44
but they are the same level as big, big is just sucky normally so gambit will win

I just cant see how gambit throws this ez shit. In some way i hope they lose so they might actually wake the fuck up and make some changes.

Astralis > Spirit Vega > Complexity Hellraisers > Optic RNG > Tyloo North > Rogue Big > Gambit next matches will be these too: Complexity > Optic in a surprise grudge match upset Big > Spirit North > RNG unless the former 2-1s cant face each other because of the Bucholz or however it's spelled system

On his stream Dima put Spirit 3-0 saying that they havent played for almost 2 months = they'd been preparing Ofc he is biased but he couldve put them to advance, not a 3-0, he must know smth and be confident We saw them beat North and dominate Rogue sooo.. I wont be surprised if they squeeze past Astralis as well like QBF/Vega did previously

Sorry boys... this is my predictions and I’m so proud: Nip 3-0 SS 0-3 Liquid, astralis, north, tyloo, big, complexity, hr Astralis, hr and coL will take the legends spot. So far I have 5 teams on the legends, the rest you guys can tell me
2018-09-08 06:30
Hahaha so Astralis will go trought by beating coL, rogue and spirit xD? #NotRiggedAtAll4gaystralis
2018-09-08 08:17
5 out of the 6 teams in the 1-2 group are in my pick'em predictions. 0 of the teams in the 2-1 group are in my pick'em predictions. I predicted 3-0 for Astralis, so I don't get a point if they advance.
