In a close match that ended in an overtime thriller fnatic was the team to edge past the IEM Rio Major winners from Outsiders. In a 2-1 victory the mixed European team secured themselves the perfect start at the IEM Katowice main event.
22-year-old nicoodoz couldn't see in difference in Outsiders playstyle despite their recent roster change with Aleksandr "KaiR0N-" Anashkin replacing David "n0rb3r7" Daniyelyan.
- Honestly not really, I feel like they played exactly the same way that they used to. They played really passive and super-backed they just let the time run out and then you slowly get more scared of every possibility.
