mousesports are out of the Fantasyexpo Spring Cup, one of the regional qualifiers for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown, after finishing last in their group. The international team were the first victim of the tournament’s dreaded best-of-one format, losing out to DBL PONEY in a close Vertigo affair before being dismantled by PACT in a one-sided Nuke game.
This stunning upset will only increase pressure on mousesports, who have won just three of the 12 matches that they have played with the current lineup. The team finished IEM Katowice in 13-16th place and were bottom of their group in ESL Pro League Season 13.
Christopher “dexter” Nong‘s troops do not have any events coming up, but it is possible that they will receive an invitation to DreamHack Masters Spring, which will take place from April 29 through to May 9.
Day one of the Fantasyexpo Spring Cup ended with Sprout beating PACT to second place in Group A, which was topped by DBL PONEY, a French team headlined by Nathan “NBK-” Schmitt and Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro. The tournament will continue on Wednesday with Group B, featuring FunPlus Phoenix, LDLC, Endpoint and Pompa.
