Lower Bracket Recap

It was a back-and-forth map one of Haven between Liquid and FPX, but the latter ended up taking the map in the end.

On Ascent, FPX surprised everyone by taking out Liquid on, what many consider to be, Liquids best map. They sent the EMEA Masters 2 representative home, 2-0.

G2 was able to secure Icebox against FNATIC, who lost the same map to Guild earlier in the day.

The two well-matched teams went deep into overtime on Haven, but it was G2 that took home the win after 32 rounds of play: 17-15
