The final day of the New Legends Stage witnessed three elimination matches which confirmed the last three teams making it into the Champions Stage while the other three arrived at the end of their journey.

All the match-ups of the day were BO3s and this is how they went down. 

HellRaisers vs Fnatic 


The two teams faced each other on Mirage in their first game. This match was really exciting on account of a stellar comeback from Fnatic, who were at a deficit of ‘4-11’ at halftime only to persevere and win the match with a score of ‘19-17’.  

The second match was won by HellRaisers as they outplayed Fnatic on Dust 2 winning the match with a score of ‘16-9’. ‘ISSAA’ the player from Jordan played unbelievably well and carried HR all the way till the finish. 

The decider took place on Cache where Fnatic got dominated by HellRaisers, as they read them inside–out and ended the match quickly with the scores at ‘16-2’. With this, HR took the series ‘2-1’ and moved on to the champions stage while Fnatic was eliminated.

Faze vs G2 

The first match took place on Mirage. A quick match that ended with Faze toppling G2 quite easily as they won the match with a score of ‘16-2’.

The next match was played on Dust 2 which turned out to be the total opposite of the first match as G2 stepped up, challenging Faze head-on. After drawing at ‘15-15’ the two teams slugged it out till the third overtime with Faze finally taking the win ‘25-22’.

Faze wins the series ‘2-0’ and moves onto the champions stage while G2’s journey comes to an end.

The next match was played on Mirage where NiP got their revenge beating MIBR with a score of ‘16-10’, taking the series down to a decider.
