Iconic On Pressure playing in front of crowd

- We loved Charlotte, we loved the crowd. But now it’s a new level. Stick to the gameplan and focus on the moment and we should put on a show for the NA fans.

The match against Team BDS began on February 16 at 01:00 CET and took all three maps to reach the hard-fought victory that also eliminated the opponents from the tournament.

Map 1 was our map pick Villa that started with an even 3-3 first half. In the second half our strong defensive side strung together 4 rounds to win the first map 7-5.

Mango On any new preparations and strategy

- The preparations and strategy remain the same. The team keeps playing hard and we should find ourselves in a winning postion

The second map was Clubhouse, Team BDS' pick, and one of the weakest in our map pool. The map ended with a quick 1-7 defeat as we only managed to win one round on the attacking side.

Theme Park was the third and final map and started off with a dominating performance from us as we won the first half as defenders 5-1. The reigning Major champions did not give up without a fight as they claimed four round wins on the defending side and bringing the map close to overtime as we reached 6-5.

J9O on finishing Top 6
