Eternal Fire remains alive at the PGL Major Antwerp Europe RMR A following a 2-1 win over Fnatic this Tuesday. That means Alex “ALEX” McMeekin and the rest of Fnatic loses their chance of making it to the Belgium Major.
After having won the opening map, Özgür 'woxic' Eker and his Turkish teammates took the lead at the break on the second map 8-7. But Fnatic found momentum on their CT side on Inferno to put the match to Overpass.
For the third map straight the score was 8-7 at the break leaving no doubt, that a thriller ending was on the cards. For a while, it looked like Fnatic would eliminate their Turkish counterparts, but then Yasin 'xfl0ud' Koç delivered a spectacular 1vs2 clutch to break the economy and the spirit of Fnatic. From here on there was only one team on the server. Eternal Fire is now 2-2 at the RMR event and will need to win another match to qualify tomorrow.
