Who took the slots on the last day of the Opening Stage

Yesterday evening marked the culmination of the opening stage of the Major as the final matches were played. In these intense encounters, teams with a record of 2-2 battled it out for the remaining slots. The stakes were high, and the competition was fierce. Only three best-of-three (BO3) matches were scheduled, making each one a crucial opportunity for teams to secure their progression.

Now, let’s delve into the outcomes and reveal which teams ultimately emerged victorious, earning their rightful place in the next stage of the tournament. The anticipation is palpable as the countdown begins for the commencement of the upcoming stage, set to kick off in just a matter of hours. Excitement fills the air as fans eagerly wait to witness the next chapter of this highly anticipated event.

FURY who could

As you may recall, FURIA suffered a defeat in their first match, not against some European team, but against their regional rival, Legacy. Despite initially taking the lead in the first half of the Ancient map with a score of 7-5, they ultimately lost with a final score of 13-16 in favor of coldzera’s team, a former teammate of FalleN. This loss shook FURIA and set them on a challenging path during the opening stage. In theory, the Brazilian favorites were expected to make a comeback in the second round when they faced Lynn Vision Gaming, a team noticeably below the level of their Latin American counterparts. However, FURIA lost that match as well, granting LVG their only victory in the tournament. At this stage, everything seemed bleak for FURIA, and there was no one to blame but themselves. We do not know what transpired after that defeat, but it is evident that the players engaged in a serious conversation. Ultimately, it helped FalleN to rebuild this team, as his experience and esteemed reputation undoubtedly played a significant role. The panther’s comeback began with a victory over KOI, who fought valiantly but had no chance against FalleN’s team. Both yuurih and arT delivered fantastic performances, ending the match with an average damage per round (ADR) of over 100. The scores were 13-6 on Overpass and 13-9 on Vertigo.

The fourth match was played against an opponent who could have easily put an end to FURIA’s struggle. ENCE finished IEM Katowice in the top 6, and their IGL, gla1ve, is one of the best captains in Counter-Strike, boasting several Major victories with Astralis. Unfortunately for ENCE, they did not live up to expectations, performing poorly throughout the tournament. The scores in the series were 13-8 on Mirage and 13-9 on Ancient. This time, chelo stepped up to become the standout player with a score of 40-21. KSCERATO also performed well, ending the match with a rating of 1.41. FURIA’s final match was against SAW, who started the PGL Major Copenhagen with two consecutive victories but somehow lost three in a row. Undoubtedly, this result highlighted their lack of experience and the pressure they couldn’t handle. FURIA capitalized on the situation and secured a relatively comfortable victory, with scores of 13-7 on Vertigo and 13-7 on Ancient. Surprisingly, FalleN amazed everyone with one of the best performances of his career. His individual statistics were outstanding, with a score of 45-20, an average damage per round (ADR) of 107.7, and a rating of 1.68. It was a remarkable achievement and a masterclass from one of the most influential Brazilian players. Thanks to this victory, FURIA overcame an incredibly challenging task and earned the opportunity to compete in the next stage.
