Not even OCEAN can believe subtLe got a free pass to China
The second day of matches have concluded in the WESG North American finals, and we have seen several teams complete their tournament runs. Read on for a summary of the days action.
The day played out largely as expected, with the only true 50/50 match being between Mythic and Swole Patrol, which Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir's men were able to earn the win on.
The full results were as follows:
With a flawless group stage, Cloud9 are the undisputed number one seed heading into the playoffs, followed by SK. Finding themselves at the bottom of the group were Mythic and subtLe,. and the pair were set to play a match to determine which would go on to the World Finals in China.
However, the stream team inexplicably decided to forfeit this all-important match, thereby rendering their entire participation in the event pointless. One can only imagine how the members of Etherian (formerly Bushido Boyz) must feel, knowing the team that ended their chances of of attending the event potentially never intended to go in the first place.
The WESG North America standings after day one are:
GooseBreeder and her other Damn Canadians have reigned supreme
In the female event, Those Damn Canadians have played the role of Cloud9, going perfect throughout the group stage. Despite CLG Red's Emma "Emy" Choe being the statistically best player of the event, the Canadian pair of Team X's Stephanie "missharvey" Harvey and Dignitas' Mounira "GooseBreeder" Dobie has proved too much to handle for the other teams.
The full results for the female tournament so far are:
|American Eagles||9-16||Those Damn Canadians||Overpass|
|CLG Red||16-8||Poutine Puggers||Train|
|Freedom Fraggers||6-16||Those Damn Canadians||Inferno|
|American Eagles||16-5||Poutine Puggers||Nuke|
The results will sadly see Poutine Puggers exit the tournament, with the other four teams headed to the single-elimination bracket to determine which of them will be representing North America in China.
The table of results after the first day is as follows:
|Those Damn Canadians||4||4||0||+33||12|
The tournament will resume tomorrow at 3 PM EST with Those Damn Canadians taking on Freedom Fraggers. On the men's side of the event, Cloud9 and Swole Patrol will be the first match of the day, scheduled to start at 6 PM EST.
