Photos: Best shots from the Challengers Stage

Scroll through the article to witness moments of joy and pain from the first stage of the Major.

With the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 Challengers Stage wrapping up following four days of action, we bring you the highlight shots from the event so far, captured by HLTV.org's photographers "MAKKU" Makuch and Josip "brcho" Brtan.

The duo was there to capture forZe's early success and the on-air team filming content on the first days, but things got more intense as the tournament rolled on. The contrasting in reactions as Liquid power on to the Legends stage and Astralis suffer elimination painted a picture of the importance of each match played in Antwerp — with much more yet to come.
