En route to securing the top spot in Group A, Team SoloMid completed a near-flawless performance against Team Liquid. After winning the terrorist side on Overpass 15-0, just one round win on the CT side was enough to see Team SoloMid take the victory with a perfect score of 16-0.
The Danish side once again looked good against Virtus.pro in the winner’s match, taking it out 16-3 despite a strong performance from Virtus.pro’s Paweł ‘byali’ Bieliński.
Elsewhere, one of the game’s strongest teams—and DreamHack Cluj champions—EnVyUs were shocked by Ninjas in Pyjamas in the Group B opener. The Swedish underdogs were buoyed by the supportive crowd, pushing them to a surprising 16-8 victory.
