The Summit 4 results continue to prove that the laid back, iconic “couch” event delivers on exciting and unpredictable matches, as it had done the on the first day. With three series being forced into third game deciders and a few surprising twists, the second day has delighted many fans.
BTS also delivers on the quirky antics and signature off beat segments that fans have grown to love. This season fans got an inside look a the “BTS crib” with an exclusive tour by Ted “PYRIONFLAX” Forsyth and Jacob “SIRACTIONSLACKS” Kanner.
The Summit 4 results day 2
The second day featured four teams – EHOME, Evil Geniuses, Digital Chaos and Team Liquid.
EHOME vs Team Liquid were first on the agenda. Team Liquid was looking strong in the first match with a quick, one sided game in which the Europeans seemed to have full control and confidence over. EHOME responded in the second game with an Anti-Mage pick whose item build and results left viewers in disbelief. By the end Chen “Cty” Tianyu was at the top of the net-worth with 32k gold, more than twice the amount of Team Liquid’s most farmed hero. Team Liquid then went on to claim the third game victory with a draft that gave them healing, damage and mobility. With the 2:1 victory, Liquid advanced in the upper brackets, EHOME dropped to the lower brackets.
WTF IS HE BYING? CTY?

The second series of the North American Clash began shortly thereafter, with much hype and anticipation as Peter “ppd” Dager had claimed earlier that “DC has 0% chance of winning”. The series ended up being close, pushing into a deciding third game that was very close and exciting before EG were able to find their opening to claim the win. While Digital Chaos did take the first game from the TI5 champions, the second game favored EG in a rather convincing way. With the last game victory, EG bested DC 2:1 sending the new North American hopefuls to the lower brackets.
The Upper Bracket semi finals between Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid rounded out the day. The first match was very one sided in favor of the Europeans. With Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen’s ursa, the team were able to easily cinch the victory in only 32 minutes. PPD is not one to be taken twice usually, and was quick to adjust and adapt the strategies and leadership. The North American team easily claimed the second game in redemption for their first performance with Syed Sumail “Suma1L” Hassan and Artour “Arteezy” Babaev leading the pack. The final determining game was back and forth and much closer as both teams were striving to keep themselves in the upper brackets. After 55 minutes of game play EG were able to seize the victory, defeating Team Liquid 2:1, and advancing further in the upper brackets.
