Day 3 of the Group Stage has now concluded. We inch closer and closer to the finale of the Group Stage. With the end drawing near, these teams will fight to the death on the final day of the Group Stage. Elimination is near for the bottom seeds, and they have to bring out everything they have to avoid an early exit.
Group A has been dominated by the upper seeds since Day 1. After three days, Evil Geniuses proved that their early dominance was not a fluke being the first to secure the Upper Bracket spot. Evil Geniuses finish Day 3 with a total of fourteen wins and two losses. PSG.LGD and Team Liquid put on respectable performances, with both of them tying for the second and third spots. Each of them won eleven games and only five losses. We have another tie between Hokori and Royal Never Give Up the fourth and fifth place. After three days, they have a tally of nine wins and seven losses.
OG’s performance has been decent at best, and they are in the sixth spot with eight wins and eight losses. Gaimin Gladiators settle for seventh place after three days with a disappointing six wins and ten losses. Soniqs are dangerously close to elimination at the eighth place with only five wins and eleven losses to their name. BetBoom is in ninth place in the group with only four wins and twelve losses, and I am sure that they want to improve that standing to avoid elimination. BOOM Esports continues to skid down the standings as they reside at the bottom with an abysmal performance of only three wins and thirteen losses.
After three days of action, the standings in Group B are still not solidified. Tundra resides at the top after Day 3 with ten wins and four losses under their belt. Team Aster and Team Secret are tied at the second and third spots with a respectable nine wins and five losses. Thunder Awaken complete the top four with eight wins and six losses. Fnatic and Team Spirit are tied for the fifth and sixth place in Group B, going even with seven wins and seven losses. Beastcoast and Entity are tied for the seventh and eighth place; both of them won six games and lost eight. Talon and TSM FTX are tied at the bottom two spots of Group B with a meager four wins and ten losses.
