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.

WESG North America Finals talent revealed

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:

ca subtLe 8-16 br SK Train
us Cloud9 16-12 ca FRENCH CANADIANS Train
us Swole Patrol 5-16 br SK Overpass
us Mythic 13-16 us Swole Patrol Cache
us Cloud9 16-8 ca subtLe Mirage
ca FRENCH CANADIANS 16-8 ca subtLe Overpass

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:

Team Matches Wins Losses Round Differential Points
us Cloud9 5 5 0 +48 15
br SK 5 4 1 +23 12
ca FRENCH CANADIANS 5 3 2 +20 9
us Swole Patrol 5 2 3 -34 6
us Mythic 5 1 4 -27 3
ca subtLe 5 0 5 -30 0

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:

us American Eagles 9-16 ca Those Damn Canadians Overpass
us CLG Red 16-8 ca Poutine Puggers Train
us Freedom Fraggers 6-16 ca Those Damn Canadians Inferno
us American Eagles 16-5 us 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: 

Team Matches Wins Losses Round Differential Points
ca Those Damn Canadians 4 4 0 +33 12
us CLG Red 4 3 1 +33 9
us American Eagles 4 2 2 -3 6
us Freedom Fraggers 4 1 3 -15 3
ca Poutine Puggers 4 0 4 -48 0

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.

As a fan of Mythic, this is just disappointing. I feel bad for Etherian and any other teams who would've been grateful for the opportunity to compete at the lan.

True. It's sad that Mythic are unwilling to go to LAN.
