Team Singularity: Total failure
This split is going as horribly as possible for Team Singularity. The first week began with two losses to Vanir and Riddle Esports. The second week was no different from the first—the same two losses, only now from Astralis and NYYRIKKI. In the third week, the team was joined by Bifrost and Dusty, who did not give a chance to win. The fourth week threw in their rivals JD|XL and MNM Gaming. And if with the first opponents, the result is obvious, with MNM, there was quite an interesting match that could have given the Danes their first win, but Marshmalows&Molotows proved stronger. This week Team Singularity will face X7 Esports and Vanir, who will be tough to beat.
Team Singularity is a Danish organization that emerged in 2017. The team started their journey with the ESL Premiership, where they have shown decent results. After that, the squad made it to the Nordic Championship, where it also scored well, and made it to the LCD, where it consistently placed in the top places. The team has passed the first qualifications of the NLC, but at the Fall open, they have only 9-12th place. At NLC Spring, the Danes qualify for the playoffs and finish in 4th place.
The last split for Team Singularity was very bad. The team won only 2 out of 18 matches (in Weeks 7 and 8), completely failing the season.
X7 Esports: It's not all bad
This split didn't start out well for X7 Esports. In week one, after losing to JD|XL, the team allows a second loss to MNM Gaming. In the second week, the squad falls to Dusty and Vanir. After defeating them, the team was able to rehabilitate itself. In the third week, X7 Esports, unfortunately, completely failed, giving points to Riddle Esports and Astralis Talent. Week four started with an easy win over NYYRIKKI and ended with an interesting match against Bifrost. X7 Esports was able to get a very important victory. The boys will meet Team Singularity and JD|XL this week, where even one win will be nice.
X7 Esports is a British team founded on the Isle of Man in December 2020. The organization began its journey by qualifying for UKEL 2021, which the team passed, and even managed to make the tournament playoffs but did not make it past the second round. The team failed to make the first qualifications for the NLC.
The last split for X7 Esports was incredibly successful. They lost only 4 maps, two of which were from tournament favorites Bifrost. Despite this, the team making the playoffs did not give each of the opposing teams a chance and took first place, thus qualifying for the EU Masters. EU Masters X7 Esports started from the group stage, which they passed in second place, with a score of 5-1. The playoffs themselves were not good at all. After losing to LDLC OL 3-0 on the maps, X7 Esports finished 5-8th.
