The second day of Main Swiss is underway here in Spring Sweet Spring #2, and it’s a chance for some teams to get one step closer to the playoffs! Let’s see the exciting matches played today!
HAVU 2-1 GamerLegion
The Finnish side of HAVU is one of the highest-ranked teams in the Main Swiss stage but over the last few games have been struggling to get convincing wins as they fell to 100PG yesterday and had to play three maps against GamerLegion today. Luckily for them, however, they managed to seal the win in their favor this time, despite a three-map drama once again. The two maps that HAVU won were quite convincing, with 16-9 and 16-7 respectively, and even the map they lost was very competitive as they picked up 13 rounds and could’ve won the game. xseveN was the master of the server this time as he was able to get a solid 64 kills in the series and ended with 86.4 ADR.
Lyngby Vikings 1-2 Copenhagen Flames
The second series was just as competitive as the first, and even more so as the final map ended in a 16-14 drama that saw the Flames close the series without needing overtime to go any further. The all-Danish derby was one of the better games that we’ve seen from both sides, with the Flames having new players embedded into their roster. They seemed to perform well and stuck together when needed. Basso stood in for Zyphon who was unavailable for this series. nicoodoz was the player that out-performed the rest as he claimed an incredible 18 opening kills across the series and ended the match with 95.8 ADR!
Entropiq 2-1 Nordavind
Despite being one of the highest-ranked teams in the Main Swiss stage, Entropiq found it difficult to take down the European side of Nordavind who put up an excellent fight in the three maps they played, eventually with the score going 2-1 in the favor of Entropiq. Nordavind were able to swipe the first map after a confident 16-12 result but from there Entropiq were able to get a 16-3 and 16-5 to win the series. Forester bagged the MVP award after finishing the series with a huge 72 kills to guide his team eventually to victory.
Dignitas 2-1 KOVA
The Swedish team of Dignitas took on their Nordic brethren hailing from Finland when they battled KOVA inside the server. It was a series that on the outside looked very competitive with all three maps being needed, however the two maps that Dignitas won were 16-5 and 16-9, while the map KOVA swiped ended 16-13 showing that Dignitas were quite close to winning this too. They ended it in the third map, as Lekr0 dug deep and was able to secure the win for his team, getting 77 kills and only 42 deaths across the series, ending with a 1.83 KD.
Wisla Krakow 2-1 SKADE
This match was one of the closest that we would witness all day as the Polish side of Wisla Krakow went head-to-head with the Bulgarian side of SKADE, but this time it was the Poles that came out on top as they were able to win the series after an epic 3-map battle that saw them take both Train and Mirage 16-9 to win out on 2 of the 3 maps. jedqr once again played a quintessential part in the victory as he topped the scoreboard once again to earn yet another MVP award. This time he ended the series with 92.8 ADR!
AGO 1-2 100PG
This Kazakhstan-based team keeps on impressing the masses as they have yet again taken down another giant in the form of AGO who were the clear favorites in this match up. 100PG have looked on incredible form as of the last week, having won big games against the likes of HAVU, GORILLAZ and now AGO. This time it took three maps to get the victory but we don’t think they’ll mind this at all! 100PG snatched the final map of Inferno in an epic overtime win that saw them seal the deal with a 19-16. smiley earned another MVP award for himself as he finished the match with the best stats out of his team, with 60 kills overall.
Fiend 2-1 Endpoint
This was quite the long game for the side of Fiend to play as they were the ones that took the win over Endpoint after playing all three maps in the series. Endpoint were able to take the first map of Overpass in their favor after winning it out 16-11, but from there Fiend took a hold of the game and pushed for the win, getting a 16-10 on Mirage and stomping the UK side on Dust2, ending with a 16-2. dream3r once more proved how valuable he is to this team as he picked up the MVP award.
1WIN 2-0 Izako Boars
One of the most impressive teams in this stage at the moment is 1WIN and once more they stunned us with an epic performance as they steam-rolled the Polish side of Izako Boars without even giving them a chance to show what they could do. In the two maps they played, Izako only amassed 12 total rounds, with 1WIN taking victory 16-8 and 16-4 respectively. Once more, TRAVIS played to his highest level, finishing the series with some amazing stats, including a 2.31 KD and 104.3 ADR. This is really impressive as he is one of the most consistent players in Spring Sweet Spring #2 at the moment.
