Tournament Recap

Norway (TheViper & MBL) played against Vietnam B and the Czech Republic in the group stage. They faced a tough Vietnam B squad who fought all the way to the final game, where Norway emerged with a 3-2 victory. They then faced France and Russia in the Round of 16 and Quarterfinals, but their biggest test comes this Saturday when they face Spain (TaToH & LaaaaaN) in the Semifinal.

Norway achieved 4th place in the 2018 2v2 World Cup event.

Spain (TaToH & LaaaaaN) emerged from their group after battling China B and Argentina B. They eliminated Argentina A in the Round-of-16 and faced a tough matchup against Canada at the Quarterfinals. Spain’s teamwork and strategy pushed them through to the Semifinal, where they face Norway. GamerLegion teammates, Viper and TaToH, will be on opposite sides in this matchup.
Brazil A (Dogao, Miguel & FeAge) met Turkey and Finland B in the group stage. Brazil A beat the crowd favorite, Finland B, and their unconventional strategies in a 3-1 set to advance. They then eliminated their compatriots, Brazil B, in the Round of 16 before facing Vietnam A (the 2018 World Cup Semifinalists) in the Quarterfinals—winning the tournament’s (arguably) most entertaining series yet with a 3-2 score.
China A (Mr_Yo & Lyx) round out the semifinalist group of this year’s 2v2 World Cup. They claimed second place in the 2018 2v2 World Cup, and look ready to emulate—if not improve—their run this year.

They faced their compatriots, China B, in the Round of 16, and eliminated the 2018 World Cup winners, Finland A, in the Quarterfinals by a score of 3-1—a repeat matchup straight 2018 Finals.
