OG take down BIG, NiP defeat Heroic to secure cs_summit 6 playoff spot
OG and NiP will therefore be joining GODSENT and Vitality in the playoffs of the summer Regional Major Ranking event, while the two teams defeated in the winner's matches, BIG and Heroic, still have a chance to recover and reach playoffs by securing a win in the decider match.
Dust2 was a two-man show, as Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş and Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz powered BIG to a 16-9 win, looking dominan after OG's 3-0 start. On Inferno, the Germans were unable to convert close rounds early on, which hurt their chances on the map. OG finished the T-side 9-6 up and closed out Inferno 16-11, after some late-game difficulties.
BIG's good start on Mirage was outdone by OG as the final map went on, with Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski playing a pivotal role as they reached a 12-7 advantage. The German team was on for a comeback, making it 14-14 before Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen held down the B bombsite in a crucial round, seeing OG complete the upset.

NiP's 11-4 CT side on Mirage caused Heroic's pick of the map look like a bad idea, but after swapping to CT, Heroic made a game out of it, with Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen leading zhe way as they came back to 12-11. However, NiP managed to outdo the Danes in the final stretch to go up 1-0.
Casper "cadiaN" Møller's team struck back on Vertigo as niko again stood out, posting a 1.86 rating to help his team to a confident 16-6 win. The series was decided on Dust2, where Heroic looked good to complete the upset mid-way the second half (11-7), but the T-side from Hampus "hampus" Poser was impeccable after that point, seeing NiP take the 16-12 win.
With these results, BIG will once again face off against FaZe - a team they defeated 2-0 in the three BO3s they played this year, while Heroic will have to repeat their victory over ENCE to make playoffs in cs_summit 6 Europe.
