Things have been crazy at the Fnatic camp in recent weeks with players having public meltdowns and the team going through a string of bad performances. However, while many have doubted their future, the squad fired back with an impressive performance in these high profile match ups. With a very impressive 40 frags in just 5 games which included 2 chicken dinners, the team have made a strong statement. While one day isn't enough to say that the team is back, it certainly will mean a lot if the team can end the week on top.

TSM-Entity and Powerhouse both in the Running

While the South Asian teams in Groups A and B have had little luck in the scrims, the teams in Group C are shining and proving themselves time and again. TSM-Entity and Powerhouse also had decent showing on Day 2 along with Fnatic. All three teams are poised to finish in the top 3-top 5 in week 1 if they are to have a consistent showing on day 3 of the competition. While TSM-Entity finished in second place twice, Powerhouse picked up the first chicken dinner of the day. 

Both Bigetron and Illuminate have finished their games and won't be in action this week. However, they are on the top two spots going into the final day. UMumba Rxn, Godlike, Jyanmaara, Hype, Marcos Gaming and Soul have also finished their share of games.
