Group B at the European RMR event has only been underway for one hour and we have already witnessed the first upset – and what an upset it was!
In a thrilling overtime victory, Anonymo managed to defeat the heavy favourites from G2 in the opening round of play.
The Bo1 matchup ended up being a fierce battle where the two squads took turns having momentum.
Despite losing a match point at 15-14 in regulation, Anonymo were the much better team in overtime as they closed out the series 19-16. That means the Poles go up 1-0 in the Swiss Stage, while G2 can see themselves in the lower seeds.
