YNk did not appear impressed by his team's second half display

The next two North American teams took to the stage in the FACEIT London Major, and it wasn't as pretty a sight as the region's first two entrants.

MIBR started off strong on Inferno, taking the pistol and following two rounds to commence a lead. They kept it up strong from there, taking six rounds in a row in the middle before losing a couple towards the end, although keeping a 11-4 lead. Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo wasn't able to halt what came next, however, as TYLOO bounced back with a strong CT-side, taking round after round, only allowing their opponents to claim two rounds in the second half for the Chinese team to claim the 16-13 win.

Cloud9 was the final game of the day, and they were unable to show anything of real note. Vega Squadron came out on Mirage in full strength, taking the pistol round and gun rounds, before mounting a 12-3 lead in the first half. Although Cloud9 took a pistol round in the second half, it was quickly overturned by Dmitriy "jR" Chervak and co. for a 16-4 win.
