Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander, In-Game Leader, Astralis
- We felt prepared and we had a good talk before our matches today. Everyone knew what to do. zonic has been doing a lot of preparation and we could really feel that in our games today.
- It's going to be fun facing Team Liquid tomorrow. The crowd is probably going to be on their side, but I think we'll have some nice, friendly banter with them. We can't wait.
FaZe Clan and MIBR both tried their luck on Nuke against Team Liquid and NAVI respectively but to little avail. Both Team Liquid and NAVI took home comfortable wins while Cloud9 got a little closer to Astralis on Inferno, but was defeated by the Danes in the end.
A true nail biter on Overpass ended with Team Liquid edging out their fellow countrymen on Cloud9. FaZe Clan versus MIBR never saw a winner as the teams put out equal forces on Mirage ending in a tie.
Astralis got to continue their winning streak on Inferno putting up a comfortable victory over NAVI.
See you tomorrow!
