BEYOND EPIC: China Playoffs Start
The playoffs of Beyond Epic: China is nearly upon us. Only one Decider Match is yet to play until we know all the playoffs participants. Who will win a $50,000 event in China? Let’s look over the group stage and check on the playoffs schedule.
Group Stage Results
In Group A, the opening matches ended up with a complete defeat of the favorites. Firstly, Team Aster was badly crushed by Sparking Arrow Gaming 0-2. Then with the same score CDEC Gaming ashamed PSG.LGD. In the Winners’ Match, SAG continued the domination over Group A and went through to the Upper Bracket after a fascinating comeback in a match with CDEC Gaming. In the Elimination Match, PSG.LGD sent Team Aster to play public matches with an easy 0-2 victory. The Decider Match on June 25 was also rich with amazing comeback moments. CDEC took map 1 in style, but PSG.LGD would not be considered one of the best teams in China for such a long period if they would not be able to make such beautiful comebacks. 1-2 LGD victory and they go further, while CDEC joins Aster in search of public matches.
In Group B, Royal Never Give Up had no issues defeating EHOME.Immortal 0-2. In the second opening match, Vici Gaming lost to Invictus Gaming within two, pretty close, maps. The Elimination Match was a single spectacle by Vici Gaming, who was angry enough to knockout EHOME.Imoortal within two 30-minutes and 20-minutes maps. The Winner’s Match was much more of a close battle. RNGU lost the first map but had full control of 2nd and 3rd maps with Mars/Mirana peak. The decider is live. Although iG took the first map within 40-minutes, it is yet too early to talk about the second playoffs participant from Group B.
