It was a regular bloodbath yesterday at Pinnacle Winter Series, where Heroic, Fnatic, and FURIA all got eliminated. The three teams had all been invited to step into the tournament at the quarter-final stage, where they faced three of the qualifiers from the group play.
Heroic lost 2-1 to K23 after narrowly losing out 16-14 on the decider map. It was also a close affair in the match between Fnatic and Apeks. The Norwegian Organization managed to edge out Fnatic winning 16-13 on both maps to seal the deal.
FURIA got destroyed by the Polish team Wisla Krakow, with the Brazilians only winning 14 rounds in total. A disappointing debut for the new AWP'er Rafael 'saffee' Costa, who ended the match with a 0.64 HLTV score and 19-37 in K-D!
The only invited team to make it through to today's semi-finals was Copenhagen Flames, who won 2-1 against the Turkish superteam, Eternal Fire.
Today's schedule at Pinnacle Series Winter (CET):
12.00: Copenhagen Flames - K23
15.00: Apeks - Wisla Krakow
