After an initial defeat to LDLC on Inferno in the Group B opening match, Martin “STYKO” Styk and company fought past the Polish side of Pompa to set up a rematch against the Frenchmen, but were ultimately unable claim revenge as they were felled 10-16 on Nuke.
The European troupe were the highest ranked side in attendance in the regional BLAST qualifier, followed by mousesports, who were themselves eliminated from contention on Tuesday following losses to PACT and DBL PONEY, a French team featuring Nathan “NBK-” Schmitt and Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro.
