The third day was darkened by loss to SK while playing the match for advancing to the grand final. Nevertheless, after this defeat Gambit still has one chance to get to the decisive match - we will compete with OpTic in the final of the lower bracket.
Start of this North American team at their home tournament wasn’t successful: at the first day they gave in to Cloud9. Further OpTic managed to pull themselves together and despite their being outsiders in all the matches, they sent EnVyUs, Liquid and mentioned above Cloud9 home. This roster has recently undergone changes: the in-game leader left the team. Stanislaw was an important chain in the team and he led the team to the second place at ECS Season 2 and the first place at ELEAGUE Season 2. jasonR came as substitution to carry out the captain’s role. After such an update of the line-up OpTic changed a lot: from their map pool to the game style. Within the Los Angeles tournament it will be the debut meeting but we’ve already competed with OpTic. At DreamHack Winter 2016 the North American squad turned out to be our first opponent. Then we proved our leadership on Cobblestone and won 16:10! The question whether we are able to outperform OpTic and get even with SK in the grand final will be answered today at 19:30 CEST!
