Day one of ESEA Summer 2021 Cash Cup 4 is complete and the field has been pared down to just four teams: Party Astronauts, Third Impact, ChocoCheck, and Thani. These four are still competing for $2,000 of Fragadelphia 15 travel support and a spot in the event if they have not already secured one through other means.
Made day 2 of cash cup :D gg's @MythicRebornGG and everyone else we played. We play chococheck in a BO3 tomorrow at 4PM EST :D— Makzwell (@MakzwellCS) July 31, 2021
Just a couple of ESEA Premier teams saw action in day one, as three other Premier sides were otherwise occupied while they were getting reps in on LAN at Fragadelphia East Falls. Triton were scheduled to play in the Cash Cup but forfeited their opening match, while Mythic were knocked out by Thani in their quarterfinal matchup on Mirage. Eros also played in the event under the Villainous banner and were knocked out in the second round by Third Impact.
Party Astronauts advanced with wins over trade me, lofi hip hop radio, and ESEA Advanced side DETONATE. Their semifinal opponents, Third Impact, knocked off their aforementioned Premier compatriots from Eros, Lavender, and Levitate to secure their second-day matchup.
On the other side of the bracket ChocoCheck tore through Kaos Buddy, CSGOGameing, and TP CS en route to a day two berth. Eight different players saw at least one round of action for ChocoCheck throughout day one. Notably, CSGOGameing's registered roster featured Mounira "GooseBreeder" Dobie and Diane "di^" Tran from CLG Red and a smattering of other familiar faces from the North American scene, Gabe "Spongey" Greiner, Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk, Colin "Koi" Thor, and Nathan "madcow" Retterath.
The final day two slot went to Thani, the remnant of what was once the HeadShotKings roster. They were not granted a first-round bye and had to work through ShooterInc, CarbonX, Resurgence, and Mythic in order to secure their matchup with ChocoCheck on day two.
Today's matches will be:
|Party Astronauts||vs.||Third Impact|
Both matches will begin at 4PM EST, followed by the grand final.
