Dignitas and forZe will have another chance to reach the playoffs as they will be heading to the four-team last-chance qualifier which is scheduled for Sunday, while the final consolidation final between Gen.G and OG will be played on Friday.
The match between the former NiP duo Adam “friberg” Friberg and Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg and the everlasting fnatic core started on Dust2, the map pick of the Swedish-Norwegian side. Dignitas looked bleak on it, however, managing just two Terrorist rounds which allowed fnatic to take a quick victory, 16-6.
Inferno followed, where fnatic had managed a 10-5 offensive half, but took a while to close things out. friberg was the reason why, as he posted the best rating on the map, 1.45, but that was good enough only for 14 rounds, while fnatic took the win.
MIBR displayed another good Nuke performance with their new lineup as they ran up 10 T-side rounds to kick off the series against forZe, which they successfully converted in the second half for a 16-9 victory.
Inferno followed, one of forZe‘s best maps, but Andrey “Jerry” Mekhryakov‘s team struggled to handle the Brazilians’ CT aggression. MIBR finished the first half 10-5 up once again, with a second-round force buy pushing them across the line for a quick and comfortable 16-7.
