First Playoff Win In The Aurora Open 2022

October 26, 2022

While the World Championships is well underway, our Astralis Talent team is busy competing in the Aurora Open 2022 hosted by the NLC.

The Aurora Cup is a tournament meant to strengthen the divisions in the NLC in a competitive practice environment and is ongoing between the end of the split and the off-season.

Thirty-two teams compete in the group stage, where the top two teams in each group advance to the playoffs.

The format then consists of a single elimination bracket where the remaining teams compete for the combined prize pool of 9.800 euros.

Astralis Talent swept through the group stage in a convincing 5-1 fashion, and we are now through to the knock-out phase.

On Monday, October 24th, we faced off against Ruddy Corp in a Bo3 in the Round of 16.

A close game was needed in order for us to secure the victory 2-1. As a result of that, we have advanced to the Quarter Final, being played on October 31st at 18:00 CEST versus RATE in a Bo5 fixture.
