Bad News Eagles and forZe went head-to-head in their second matchup of the day. After winning their first matches, the two teams were looking to take another step closer to the Legends Stage.
Inferno was the map of choice for the two teams, a pick that both teams could be happy with considering great win percentages in recent times.
"Norwi", who was unbelievable throughout the entire match, got his team off to a cozy 3-0 start, but "rigoN" quickly saw to it that the Eagles got back on an even keel. BNE were on their way to a great-looking T-side, but the "Norwi"-factor was too much for them to handle, meaning forZe led by 9-6 at the break.
After the break, the Russians did not slow down whatsoever. Instead, they extended their lead quickly and forcefully, and after only giving up a single second-half round they had secured the victory.
Bad News Eagles move to the 1-1 column while forZe could leave happy knowing that they were 2-0 after the first day of play.
