In a BO3 Semifinal match, Team Heretics has secured an incredible victory against the European giant G2 Esports. Every prediction, every analysis, all proven wrong by loWel & nukkye. Up until now, G2 has been considered as the tournament’s favorite one to lift the trophy of First Strike Europe.

Team Heretics took down Team Liquid in the Quarterfinal; even after that dominant victory over Liquid, not many people could predict this upset. Statistically, everything indicated a comfortable win for G2 Esports. 

Match Overview & Scoreboard

Ascent: Team Heretics 13 – 10 G2 Esports 

Bind: Team Heretics 5 – 13 G2 Esports
