Status : Concluded until tomorrow.
UPDATE #4 : Day 2 has come to an end with Team Infused reaching the Grand Final after beating FnaticRC 2-0. However, FnaticRC are still in this tournament as they now have to play the Lower Bracket Finals against Wolves tomorrow at 18:00 CEST in a BO3 game which will be followed shortly after by the Grand Final in a BO3 format!
UPDATE #3 : We are now done with our second round of the day which was the Lower Bracket Round 3 between Wolves and WhA. Wolves win and end WhA's impressive run in this tournament where they have ousted big names like NEXT.kz and mTw out. Wolves will now be playing in the Lower Bracket final tomorrow against the loser of the upcoming game between FnaticRC and Team Infused in a BO3 format!
UPDATE #2 : The first round of the day is now over, featuring another mTw upset where they have lost to Wolves to be eliminated from the tournament which comes as a huge surprise as they were favourites to win it all. On the other hand, the new upcoming German force WhA has proven that they were not a one game wonder as they have beaten the veteran NEXT.kz in a rather dominating manner.
UPDATE #1 : We are now going live with the first matches of the day, we have two games on at the same time so check the streams and schedule below to pick a game of your preference or watch both at the same time like a true multi-tasker!
It was a great first day for the Absolute Arena Invitational, although it was just the start. We've had a huge upset where WhA have defeated mTw in a very convincing manner sending them to the lower bracket.
Now we have three different rounds for Day 2, the LB Round 2 and 3 will be played first deciding one team that will face against the loser of the UB final in the LB final. We also have the UB Final between FnaticRC and Team Infused.
Some of you might be wondering if the Upper Bracket finalist will be having any sort of advantage and the answer is yes. The Upper Bracket finalist will be one game ahead in the Grand Final which means that they only need two games to win the BO5 while the Lower Bracket finalist needs three.
