Group A looks like a top-heavy group with clear dominators in the top seeds. Royal Never Give Up takes the first spot after Day 2, dominating its enemies, winning a whopping nine games and only one loss. Evil Geniuses continue their stunning display of winning, securing the second spot after winning eight games and only losing twice. We have a three-way tie in the third to fifth spots of Group A with PSG.LGD, OG, and Team Liquid. These teams are in a comfortable place away from elimination, winning a decent six games and only losing four times. 

Gaimin Gladiators and Hokori are tied for the sixth and seventh place. Both have room for improvement; after only winning four games and losing six, they are still in danger of elimination.
