In the perhaps most exciting match so far at the EU RMR event, Cloud9 won 16-13 against G2. It was Cloud9 in the driver's seat at the beginning, but as the match progressed, Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen started to find the right solutions for his men with Nikola 'NiKo' Kovač providing several multi-kill rounds to fuel the team. But then the tides turned, as Cloud9 managed to set themselves up for success with three of their star players putting in three kills each in the last three rounds to secure success. Ax1Le, sh1ro, and Hobbit all contributed in the end, and can now enjoy their status as a 2-0 team before Day 3.
