New top team in the making

For the new Virtus.pro members it is the first tournament on the main roster and the line-up delivered an incredible performance so far. The CIS stack dominated the group stage and with a 16-7 score, they reigned over any other team. The group stage also included an encounter with OG. VP crushed the world champions 2-0, the first match even resulting in a 21-4 kill score.

Their rocket start carried over to the playoffs where they defeated Team Secret and Vikin.gg 2-0 each. Especially Egor 'Nightfall' Grigorenko is on the rise, as he stomped his opponents an took home the highest networth in each game.

World class opponents

OG had a rougher start in the group stage, as they stood on 7th place out of all 10 participants with a 12-9 score. But the star team was able to fight their way through the Lower Bracket straight to the Grand Finals, eliminating four teams on their way.

Their members have a lot more experience with playing together in crucial series in tier 1 tournaments. However, OG were not able to claim any trophies in the past months. Both finalists have a good chance of winning the title, so it will be an interesting best-of-five.
