Bad News Eagles vs Eternal Fire
The PGL Major Antwerp 2022 Challengers Stage is the first leg of the biggest tournament in the CS:GO world. The world's best teams decide the title of major. The title of champion of this tournament is much more important than the prize money, although they are not small - $ 1000000. During the Coronavirus era in eSports, the Majors were not a regular event, while in normal times, they were held twice a year. Such a situation only increases the importance of the title. And all teams who passed the difficult qualifiers will show their best game, which is prepared for the tournament.
The tournament will be played in two stages. The first is the Challengers Stage. In this stage, sixteen teams will compete for the right to play in the Legends Stage, where only eight of the participating teams qualify. The Challengers Stage matches are played in a Swiss system (each team plays for points until they have three wins or three defeats). The exit or relegation matches will be BO3, the others - BO1.Claim Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Bad News Eagles: Sensationally in the Majors
The Bad News Eagles players are very old and experienced indeed. They have all been playing in the FPL for a long time, and they got in independently (without an invitational). As a team, they also started to play on the pro scene quite a long time ago under the BLINK organization. They are experienced and stable representatives of the tier-2 scene who can compete with them.
At the RMR tournament, they have already managed to surprise in their opening match by beating Entropiq and qualified for the top Swiss draw. Next up, they faced an overwhelming force of G2 and NIP, so they had to play a match to get out of the tournament. Showing dominance, they easily defeated ASG and got the opportunity to play a qualification match again. And in a tough struggle, they still clinched the slot. The guys from Kosovo have been going for a long time, and now they have everything to prove that they are worthy of playing at the highest level.
The boys have been playing in the main squad for eight months without substitutions.
The best hltv ranking is 21st in the world. The current ranking is 28th.
The best map is ancient, with a 75% win rate for 8 maps.
Eternal Fire: XANTARES again in the Major
The Turkish team itself is very strange. They seem to have star players that have managed to add their name to the CS:GO history, but they cannot show consistently good results. Then players make a mistake on a level playing field and give up their rounds, overpower opponents on a crazy individual game, kick a player, and three days later reenter the main roster (it was a kick, not a booster). Eternal Fire has everything to win and dominate the dash2 scene, from which they can't get a foothold in dash1. The vast experience of the individual players, the incredible individual form, the single language - all of this should be the key to victory, but something is constantly missing. What is it? I hope they find the answer to that question and can move up the rankings.
The fact that they made it to the majors speaks very loudly about their potential and their work. With each match, they played with more confidence. The wins came easier and easier. In the fight for a place in the tournament, they defeated very strong rivals in the face of fnatic and OG. The Turkish team is now on the rise. For them, it is simply necessary not to slacken to grow over themselves and give battle to all-tournament favorites.
The latest change in the lineup was the arrival of Yasin "xfl0ud" Koç.
The best hltv ranking is 20th in the world. Currently, they are ranked 29th in the world.
The best map is overpass, with a win rate of 86% for 7 maps played.
