The second day of StarSeries & i-League Season 8 came to an end with NiP and G2 making their way to the Winner’s Final of Group - B. Following Vitality and Renegades ensuring their place within the Playoffs, NiP and G2 have also joined them, what remains to be seen is what seed do these teams obtain for the next round.

Group - B

After the conclusion of Group - A, the second group played out its quarter and semifinals yesterday. There were a few surprises along the day starting off with Na’Vi losing to G2 in their opening match, followed by NiP taking down EG to secure themselves a slot in the playoffs.

Though both the match were really close and all the teams had to really put in a lot of work to qualify further into the group. It was teamwork by G2 and f0rest from NiP that did the trick for their respective sides.

This is how the group stands at the end of the second day,
