The Summit 5 LAN Day 3 yielded some incredible matches as has come to be expected of the popular event. The intensity multiplied as the first two teams were facing elimination.
Digital Chaos squared off against FDL in the North American survival series. With two fairly quick and one sided matches, Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok was at the helm of victory with two fantastic performances. The TI6 bound hopefuls – DC- had secured themselves another day of competition.
Na’Vi vied with Ad Finem for the rights to compete further. A thrilling and nail-biting first game lasted 73 minutes before Na’Vi could claim the victory. It was then followed up by a short and to the point second win for the Ukrainian team to knock the Greek squad out of the event.
Wings Gaming has once again proved that unconventional strategies, drafts and playstyle can overcome the best. OG suffered a 2:0 loss at the hands of the Chinese team. The cost of their results is a trip to the lower brackets – a place the team is not unfamiliar with making stunning rebounds from.
The action resumes with more elimination rounds as Team Liquid faces Digital Chaos to start wrapping up the final two days of the event.
