ENCE move on to IEM semi-finals over G2 and lock in Major spot

ENCE's win guarantees them a spot at the Major and a matchup against Astralis in the IEM semi-finals.

With the quarter-finals now complete, ENCE have moved on to the semi-finals over G2 after trading map picks and closing the series in overtime on Dust2. Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer's squad will face off with Astralis, while G2 hold on to their hopes of claiming Legends status in the 5th-8th decider bracket.

ENCE comfortably won Mirage and Paweł "⁠dycha⁠" Dycha proved to be a problem for G2. Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač and Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač kept the series alive on Nuke, but things fell apart for G2 in the second overtime on Dust2.

Following G2's loss, FaZe can still qualify for the Major as long as the team around NiKo finish higher than in 8th place, while NIP are also locked in as the first Legends status team from Europe.

dycha topped the scoreboard versus G2

ENCE put the pressure on G2 early as they took a lead in the first half of Mirage. Snappi and company denied any chance for G2 in the second half, only giving up one round before locking down the map 16-8.

huNter- and NiKo replied on Nuke with a commanding CT half worth 13 rounds to make sure their chances in the series stayed alive. ENCE had no answers and after losing the map 16-7, only Dust2 remained.

The Polish duo dycha and Olek "⁠hades⁠" Miskiewicz topped the scoreboard on Dust2 as they held off G2, and ENCE took the early lead on at the half with 10 rounds. ENCE held on despite NiKo's best effort to keep the map alive in a double overtime where ENCE managed to take it 22-18 and secure their position in Stockholm.

the choko is the most selfish player in csgo history, only thinks about his frags but not the team winning rounds. He never baited himself for the team victory. He thinks he is smart but actually a dumb and predictable bot.

As team (not individuals) they are strong and have fraging IGL from tier 1. Ence is just a good team, deal with it 😊 About Hades - hmm he is a weird player i am not sure about him...

It's kinda incorrect, they need at least 7th place and astralis to finish at 4th, if astralis wins against ence, G2 needs 5th place, 6th wont be enough.

This ENCE lineup looks just great, honestly I think they have a chance to even win this event with the way they have been playing, I'm really proud of them, and insanely happy that we have Poles at the Major finally. Also 2 Poles in a TOP 10 team, feels great. GGs. G2 is in a real mess, they play so bad, like their decision making team-wise looks total shit, the calling looks shit, they make so many mistakes, run into stacks etc., they are just barely alive atm., if they play like this on Major they're 0-3d, calling it already. Sad but true.
