Team Spirit has had a strong start to the event, leading the way with a whopping 5 points, more than any of the other teams in the Shanghai Major EU qualifiers. They were able to take the series 2:0 between them and HellRaisers and Empire. Team Spirit started out the say with a strong performance and quick win over Na’Vi, getting megacreeps and ending the game in only 18 minues.
Na’Vi was able to make a comeback after a 20K gold deficit against Team Spirit. Danil “Dendi” Ishutin was critical in the win of that game, making a big play on his Magnus. Na’Vi were later able to sweep through Mamasboys 2:0 and give themselves 3 points, putting them tied with Team Empire for second place.
Team Empire is tied with Na’Vi in the second spot with three wins out of their four matches. The CIS team was able to take the full series 2:0 against HellRaisers and split the series between them and Mamasboys 1:1.

Shanghai Major Europe Qualifiers results day 1 Group B
