Heroic got off to a bit of a shaky start in their match against the Portuguese team from SAW, but very quickly found their rhythm and ended up destroying their opponents on Nuke.
The skill gap was too big between the teams, and the hopes of getting an even match on the server dwindled throughout the first half, where a very homogenous Heroic side left a good impression.

Nuke was also picked as the fighting ground for ENCE against HEET. Here the match was a bit more competitive with a lot of close rounds, but in the end, it was ENCE who proved too strong to handle for the Frenchmen, who could not control Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer's calls, which left HEET's defense in disarray. A solid second half sees ENCE go 1-0 with all the other favorites in Group B so far.
