An upset was on the schedule during the BetBoom quarter-finals. The Swedish team GODSENT secured their place in the semi-finals after defeating one of Europe's top 20 teams, BIG. The German team, who haven't been performing well in recent tournaments, were defeated 1-2 in their first match of the tournament. This loss comes during a period of readjustment for BIG, as they still can't find the missing spot after their main AWPer, Florian "syrsoN" Rische benched himself back in early February.
A tough way to the quarter-finals for GODSENT who had to fight their way through the first stage of the tournament with victories over Sprout, Sangal, and HEET before defeating HEET in the Playoffs round 1 and BIG in the playoffs. Their win over BIG is even more impressive considering that the Germans were one of only four teams invited straight into the quarter-finals, along with Cloud9, MOUZ, and Virtus.pro.
