The ESET UK Masters tournament over at Insomnia 47 has advanced to the play-offs stage.
We had an action packed day yesterday in The International Centre in Telford as the group stage unfolded. Everything went on as expected without any major upsets. In the packed Group A we saw Team Dignitas' latest addition, Tefel getting an easy ticket to the play-offs as he overcame TLO and Ziktomini to take the first place. Taking second place in this group was his fellow Team Dignitas teammate, JonnyRecco who managed to come back from the loser bracket after losing to Ziktomini to beat TLO and get a revenge on his first loss in order to advance in the tournament.
In Group B we saw the German duo of Socke and Krass taking the top two places as they overcame ABomB and Randy respectively in their first matches to meet in the group finals where Socke came out on top. Krass got to meet ABomB in the loser bracket finals, a game which he won easily with a 2 to 0 scoreline. Group C was succesfull for the premier UK organization as well as BlinG came out of the groups second placed, winning against FluNIgs and Jamesykins and only losing to Team Infused's Ourk who got the first place. Last but not least, Group D featured DreAm and Miniraser advancing out of the groups. This leaves us with the following bracket:
