ROX Armada, Elite8, TSM, and DetonatioN are eliminated in the Group Stages of the tournament. Troubles with the streams.
After a delayed start, the 2017 Vainglory Championship Day 1 steamed at full speed in the Kallang Theatre in Singapore. There we witnessed some really good quality matches. But sadly for the fans, the failed start was not the only disappointment. The 2016 World’s champion – ROX Armada, got eliminated. They were not the only ones to prematurely leave the Group stages – Elite8, TSM and Detonation Gaming were gone too. The failed start might have been a bit of a disappointment, but it couldn’t overshadow the overall go quality of the tournament.
The matches went smoothly, but there were great surprises. All the teams that were expected to advance to the quarterfinals are gone. Even the last year’s winner.
- Group A: #1 seed is Cloud 9 who won all of its 4 matches. Next in line is Pain Gaming which managed to win only 50% of its matches.
- Group B: The leader is Team Kraken, which unlike Cloud 9, managed to win only 3 of its 2 Bo2s, the #2 is G2 Esports with a nice 2-2.
- Group C: The group was topped by Tribe who advances to the next stage thanks to its 3 wins and 1 loss. The #2 is followed by Impunity, which won only 50% of its matches.
- Group D: #1 seed is Ace gaming and #2 seed is Hunters.
What to Expect from Day 2
The Quarterfinals will be separated in 4 stages, which will put the first 2 of each seed against each other. In Series 1 we will see a clash between Tribe and G2 Esports. Series 2 will be populated with the players of team Team Kraken and Impunity. Series 3 will simply be a bloodbath between Ace gaming and Pain Gaming. The 4th series will be between Cloud 9 and Hunters.
