Before the main stage of the major, FaZe and FURIA were often picked at 3-0 in Pick'ems. No one could have imagined that the bracket of the first day would put the two teams at different ends, but it's precisely how it turned out. Moreover, the blazing start of the Russian squad Cloud9 confirmed their status as favorites and shattered some past patterns. We offer you more information about other conclusions based on the results of the sixth day of the IEM Rio Major in this article.

When it came to Cloud9, we usually either praised sh1ro or pointed out interesting points in HObbit and interz's stats. Now we will talk about the players who have yet to be mentioned: nafany and Ax1Le. Yes, according to the first days of the Legends stage, both players are outside the top 10 in ACMv2. What matters is this: sh1ro wasn't the main reason for the team's six consecutive successful matches. As it turns out, Cloud9 is slowly beginning to move away from being a one-player team, and not only the sniper can play a decisive role in winning games.

KSCERATO finally became the best support in the two metrics combined. At the preliminary stage, the CSA system didn't encourage the frequency with which the actual FURIA support racked up stats. Even an absolute ACMv2 lead didn't help: the average value remained subpar. After getting to the playoffs, it turned out that the Brazilian team had some balance: KSCERATO's activity decreased slightly in favor of his teammates without affecting their overall performance. Will Kaike remain the leader until the end of the Legends stage? It's unlikely, but today's observation already gives an extra reason to keep an eye on him separately. Recall that in addition to KSCERATO, yuurih still has a place in the top 20 in ACMv2: Yuri Santos is second only to frozen after two days.

The top four snipers of the Legends Stage are from the CIS. No matter how much attention we give to other Cloud9 players, we must remember that sh1ro is still playing the best tournament of his career, breaking the ceiling in every way. Currently, Dmitry leads both in sniper average and ACMv2 power rankings. Jame is right below him, leading the major in sniper kills per round. We'll find out whether this fact will help to beat MOUZ in the BO3-series already in the first match of the seventh game day of the IEM Rio Major. A playoff spot is at stake, and Outsiders have every chance to join the list of the CIS teams in the final stage.

As for the remaining teams, no other team has more players from the top 20. The play of Heroic was a pleasant surprise: 4 Danish players were among the leaders of ACMv2 after the first day, while cadiaN shared second place with ZywOo in arithmetic sniper rankings. The match against Cloud9 pretty much shook up everyone's stats: sjuush remained the team's leader according to ACMv2 and its only representative in the top 20. The Dane is also in the top three most valuable supports in the tournament, and his contribution was especially evident in the victory over the Outsiders. Heroic can make the playoffs on the second attempt if they win a rematch against Liquid. The match will be important not only for cadiaN, who lowered his stats on the second day but also for sjuush as he is competing with NAF as a rifler.


The CIS teams are holding their own after the second day of the main stage: Cloud9 was the first to make the playoffs, continuing to repeat the organization's path in 2018. The Outsiders will play MOUZ for another slot after the derby with Team Spirit, while they will clash with Sprout in an elimination match. The chances of a CIS advance to the playoffs seemed slim, but they increase with every game. Day 7 started at 2 p.m. GMT on November 7, with the Outsiders vs. MOUZ as the opener.
