WESG Finals reaches playoffs

The organisers of the WESG Finals have revealed the match-ups for the Round of 16 following the end of the round-robin group stage.

The draw for the Round of 16, pitting group winners and runners-up, produced a mouth-watering clash between two teams who made the podium last year as reigning champions fnatic will lock horns with Russia.

MIBR, the red-hot favourites to win the gold, have been drawn against Viva Algeria, who caused the biggest upset of day two after knocking out Chiefs, while G2 will continue their campaign against the ex-CyberZen squad, who joined Panda ahead of this event.

MIBR will take on Viva Algeria in the first round of the playoffs

OpTic have been handed what could be a tough tie against Alpha Red, who looked in form in the group stage, and Windigo will play Furious in what will be a clash between two players that we recommended fans to keep an eye on, Valentin "poizon" Vasilev and Luca "Luken" Nadotti.

Below you can find the draw in full:

Russia Russia vs. Sweden fnatic
Thailand Alpha Red vs. Denmark OpTic
Serbia Valiance vs. United States Singularity
Ukraine Ukraine vs. Poland AGO
Bulgaria Windigo vs. Argentina Furious
Brazil MIBR vs. Algeria Viva Algeria
Japan Absolute vs. Philippines TNC
France G2 vs. China Panda

did you see the game ? they were playing against tier 666 and throw lots of rounds as T and even more as CT... if you don’t wanna see i don’t blame you as you r russian
2019-03-12 18:43
Yes i see game,and see previous against brazilians,whey lose beging of game too,after comeback win. With chinese they do same,but lose. If worldedit not miss 100shots in 1st half on overpass, Russia should win. They play against tier2-3 cinese team, all chinese is active players, hooch,seized is inactive,worldedit just start play after 1 year inactive, dosia is bad at 2 last years. And they just mix who plays for fun. And u even dont understand it))) and i dont see a reasons why teamrussia cant win against Fnatic.

Jesus fucking christ. They made one bad matchup and everyone is going apeshit. There's literally been worse playoff draws at majors. What next, you're gonna say that somehow China is trying to get their teams through when the only Chinese team that went through is matched up against a top 3 team at the event?

they fucked up bad, did u see groups before teams started not going into wesg? kinda expected from WESG tbh
2019-03-12 19:18
So? Top 8 is pretty much gonna be the expected 8 at the end of the day regardless (except for the Absolute vs TNC matchup but 7/8 isn't bad) so who cares. Doesn't make a difference in terms of prize money if you made top 16 or went out top 32. People are getting so mad about something that makes no difference.

Unlucky. Would have been great for them if they had drawn a beatable opponent in the round on 16, to eventually make top 8, get in the prizepool and then have a really big game vs star players on that quarters game.

what do you think about today fnatic x optic = fnatic 2x1 hard match Valiance x AGO = Valiance Windigo x MiBR = idk but MiBR have a 60x40 Absolute x G2 = i think g2 but this game seems like too confident and i have fear with that
2019-03-13 23:59
mibr Idk but g2 gonna have a free win, optic could upset and I’d skip the Valiance one

I will not bet on fnatic the chance of upset is too high Valiance x AGO i dont watch this games i put valiance because the last results, they won easly vs optic. Windigo can suprise MiBR and the brazilian lineup dont show nothing special but windigo its very dependent of poizon, and for the last game the japanese team will be like kamikazes and this can surprise g2.
