Esports: Spirit and BNE reach Major

Spirit and Bad News Eagles became the final two teams to reach the PGL Major Antwerp after seeing off Anonymo and SINNERS respectively in the final matches of Europe RMR B.

All four teams finished with a 2-2 record and both series went the distance, with Spirit's victory over Anonymo perhaps the most comfortable.

Drama on the way to Antwerp

That series kicked off on Spirit's pick of Vertigo and the Russian squad narrowly took the lead with a 16-14 victory.

They were quickly pegged back, however, with Anonymo going on a 12-1 stretch on their defensive half to win their pick of Mirage 16-12.

Nuke was the decider and ultimately, Anonymo went down with a whimper. Spirit showed their class in the first half, posting 13 attacking rounds, and reached the Major with a 16-7 domination of their Polish opponents.

Bad News Eagles show character

Bad News Eagles needed to come back from a map down to reach the Major, having lost their map pick of Mirage 16-10 to SINNERS. Like Spirit, they also posted 13 attacking rounds in the first half of a map, using that early advantage to win the second map of Nuke 16-6.

The decider was Inferno and it went the full 30 rounds, though at 12-6, SINNERS looked to have matters in hand. They were unable to convert that advantage, however, as Bad News Eagles came roaring back and became the first Kosovar side to reach a Major.

That brings a close to the qualifiers for PGL Major Stockholm, with the 24 teams now set for the Belgian tournament, which kicks off on 9th May and finishes on 22nd May. Follow the action via our Sports Live Streaming service.
