EG breeze past fnatic; 100 Thieves take down Heroic

Evil Geniuses and 100 Thieves are through to Group A's upper bracket semi-finals following convincing victories over fnatic and Heroic, respectively.

The second pair of matches in Odense was headlined by a match between two top-five sides, which turned out to be a one-sided affair as Evil Geniuses made light work of fnatic on Mirage. It looked anything but a clash between teams separated by just two places in the rankings, with the North Americans racing to a 13-2 lead after a dominant CT performance, led by Tsvetelin "⁠CeRq⁠" Dimitrov, who racked up 19 frags.

CeRq was on fire in EG's demolition job of fnatic

fnatic responded in convincing fashion with a victory in a quick pistol round, but more misery was to come for them. EG rallied back immediately on a force buy and put together a string of rounds en route to a quick finish that puts them through to move on in Group A's upper bracket.

Meanwhile, 100 Thieves beat Heroic on the secondary stream on Vertigo, where they put up a masterclass of a defensive performance. After a slow start, the Danes took the reins of the game and secured the lead, but the Australians fought back and ended the half up 8-7.

100 Thieves were far too hot for Heroic to handle

Now playing on the CT side, 100 Thieves kept their defense tight and compact and won seven rounds in a row to hit match point. Heroic still attempted a response, but one round was all they could muster as the former Renegades squad laid the game to rest to set up a clash against Evil Geniuses later in the day.

Tarik and stan donot have to show up if the other three are, it's a team game and if tarik is willing to play support by baiting himself for the star players, its good for the team. Example of this is the kill on Brollan at short where Ethan got the kill

Lul at everyone shitting their pants. Fnatic is still a top 4 team. Look at the other teams outside of top 4. Fnatic shits on any team that isnt EG, Astralis or Liquid.
