D2CL season 10 playoffs kicked off last night with the first two matches in the brutal one game elimination series.
NiP took on Comanche in a fairly one sided match. The newly sponsored team (previously Escape Gaming) marked a victory notch on their belt to get their season rolling.
Vega locked horns with the qualified team Insane Gaming. Surprisingly the first 20 minutes were fairly even with Insane Gaming even holding on to a slight advantage at times. Despite trying to hold tight, Vega overpowered the team and claimed their victory.
The remaining 12 teams will meet the elimination challenge head on today – saying goodbye to six more teams when the dust finally settles.
Alliance vs Gus Gaming will start off the evening at 15:00 CET HERE.
