It’s the start of the Regional Swiss stage here in Spring Sweet Spring 2. That means the 16 qualified teams from last week will be taking each other on for 8 spots into the next stage of the event!

Fiend 2-0 Caronte
The first series of the day began with a very dominant Bulgarian team of Fiend taking on the newly formed Spanish side of Caronte. It seemed like Fiend would’ve had a disadvantage as they had to use a stand-in in this match, with h4rn stepping in for mar, but it made no difference at all, as Fiend stormed into the first map taking it 16-7, with the second falling even easier with an insane 16-2 scoreline. h4rn had an awesome AWP clip which you can watch here, and the overall team performed very well, with REDSTAR taking the MVP award for his monstrous 108.4 ADR!

Sangal 2-1 KOVA
The second series was much a different story, as Sangal and KOVA battled into a lengthy 3-map series before a winner could be determined in this one. KOVA was able to secure the first map as they took home Mirage 16-9. Their T-Side was pretty immaculate as they were able to win 8 rounds to win this map. From there, however, it was Sangal that came to life and were able to reverse sweep the series, with the second map going 16-10 and third being even better at a dominant 16-5. Maj3r topped the leaderboard for his team, as he was able to secure 62 kills across the three maps played.

Lyngby Vikings 2-0 OFFSET
The Danish side of Lyngby Vikings went on a rampage against the Portuguese team of OFFSET who barely got off the ground in this series, getting only 20 rounds across the two maps in what was a dominant victory for the all-Dane side. Despite OFFSET making the first map somewhat competitive, they couldn’t keep up the energy and sadly fell 2-0. The Vikings have some key players in their side, with both raalz and J3nsyy having the most impact in the majority of the games they play. J3nsyy claimed the MVP award for this series after getting a 1.74 KD!

Izako Boars 2-0 GORILLAZ
It seems like there’s a general pattern for today’s matches as yet another game ended with a confident 2-0 scoreline. This time it was the Polish team of Izako Boars who were able to prevail against the European-mixed side of GORILLAZ. Despite featuring some very famous names, the skill level was too high for the Boars today, as they were only able to get 22 rounds across the two maps. STOMP was on form once again for his side, as he claimed yet another MVP award, getting 49 kills and ending the series with 87.3 ADR. He’s on path to earning himself quite the few MVP awards if he keeps this level of play up!

GamerLegion 2-0 100PG
Once more the pattern continued as GamerLegion took on the Kazakh-side of 100PG and were able to dominate them in a 2-0 match. Typically, it would be a player like Zero who would be at the top of the leaderboard, but this time it was the turn of RuStY to show up to the plate, after he was able to end the series with an insane 2.28 KD, with 41 kills across the series. 100PG were barely able to get off the ground sadly, and after losing the first map couldn’t pluck up the energy to push onwards and try and get back into the series.

Galaxy Racer 1-2 NASR
NASR have been quite a dominant side in the games they have played since joining Spring Sweet Spring #2, and a match-up against the Swedes of Galaxy Racer gave them an opportunity to be spellbinding in this match, and that is exactly what they did as they shut down the Swedish side 2-1 in what was quite the back and forth match. Vertigo went in the favor of NASR, with Galaxy Racer coming back on Dust2, but it fell down to the final map of Mirage where NASR were able to seal the deal. Boros ended the series with an insane 120.8 ADR!

Wisla Krakow 2-0 Ambush
In what was one of the shortest matches of the day so far, the Polish side of Wisla Krakow faced up to the French team of Ambush, and this match didn’t last long that’s for sure. The first map of Mirage was blazed by Wisla Krakow who took home an impressive 16-1 score, with the only round secured by Ambush being the last round of the first half on their CT side. Newly-added Markos, who currently still seems to be on trial, was once again the MVP of the series as he dominated the French squad to earn a huge 2.09 KD.

1WIN 2-0 hREDS
The last series of today followed exactly the same pattern as many before it, as 1WIN gave barely any chance for hREDS to get off the ground in this series. Their skill level was huge in this match, with the first map ending 16-9. A pretty average scoreline for a map like Nuke, but when the game moved into Dust2, 1WIN went into sixth gear and breezed home to a 16-2 victory to decide the series. Youngster deko was once again on hand to put up a huge performance, getting 106.9 ADR to finish the series, alongside a 2.09 KD!
