OG: The Europeans are making the most of the situation
It's amazing how everyone is burying this OG lineup at this major, and it keeps moving on. After losing to TSM at the top of the grid, the Europeans fell to the loser, and there they sensationally beat BOOM Esports (2-0) in the first round. Can the OG players overcome the resistance of another Asian? The question is complicated, and the bookies have more faith in the European players.
The Western European champions did not come to Sweden with a full squad. The legendary Ceb is now in the five-man position at the majors, with N0tail taking over the coaching slot. While the team's game is in waves, the guys are tearing up everyone and everything, losing.
Europeans started this major with a victory over beastcoast (2-0). Peruvians could not oppose the current OG anything at all. The second map lasted just over 50 minutes.
Team OG's second game of the first day was with the Asian team BOOM. Many pundits predicted BOOM's success in this tournament, and the OG players tasted the power of the Philippine squad. On the first map, OG tried to play through a carry. On the second map, the OG team got their revenge.
On the second game day, there was some kind of setback with the OG squad. The guys lost two games against Tundra Esports and T1. But in the remaining games of the group stage, there were only victories: over BB Team and Evil Geniuses.
Fnatic: Asians can move on
After returning from Bucharest after a poor showing at TI10, the Fnatic squad went on holiday without playing any official games. Armel, an experienced mid who had been with TNC Predator for over three years, has moved to the middle position, while Jaunuel, who used to play in OB Esports x Neon, has moved to the top five. A full team synchronization took place in January, and Fnatic once again emerged as a powerful Asian force.
At the end of the first DPC league, the boys made a comeback and got into the Majors zone, which was canceled at the last minute. In the second DPC league, there were no such problems. The Asian powerhouse had quietly taken the top 3 in their region and was preparing for this international start.
As part of the group stage in Sweden, the Fnatic team was haunted by the magic of numbers. This team finished with a 2-2-2 stat in the first stage, which did not allow them to start in the wingers. In their first playoff appearance, the boys got a very familiar opponent in T1, and in a tough battle, the team overcame their crucial rival. But will the boys be able to progress from here? OG is a manageable opponent.
