The fourth week of the North American League 2022 Stage 3 has been concluded. Our R6 team won both matches against XSET and Soniqs, resulting in a spot in the 2023 Six Invitational.
Securing at least a seventh-place standing in the NAL 2022 Stage 3 earns the team at least 140 SI Points, which is now guaranteed.
Those points, combined with 525 points won from Stage 1, and 225 points won from Stage 2, earn Astralis 940 points. Over 15 teams can't achieve as many points, resulting in a secured qualification.
Our first match of the week was against XSET on the map, Border. Iconic led the troops to a 7-3 victory with a top-fragging performance and a rating of 1.89.
Our opponent the next day, October 5th, was Soniqs, who had performed well at the tournament. The last meeting against Soniqs resulted in a close OT victory in our favor.
