Fnatic and Nouns eliminated from IEM Dallas

Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg did not manage to make a difference for Fnatic as a stand-in during the two matches.

Fnatic had to play IEM Dallas without Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson on the team, who was sidelined due to personal reasons. In his spot Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg stepped in to help the team, but the return of the former Major winner did not go as planned.

Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg went -26 in K/D on the four maps of play against 9z and MOUZ. Fnatic started the day by losing to MOUZ in a best-of-one match. In the lower bracket, the Europeans lost to 9z and were knocked out of the tournament already on day 1.

Nouns shared a similar fate losing out to G2 and FURIA.

In Group B the most notable result was the win for Astralis in their Tier-1 LAN return. The Danes took down their old rivals from Team Liquid after a superb performance from Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz and Alexander "Altekz" Givskov.
