In the CS:GO IEM Katowice, meanwhile, Natus Vincere are 4/5 to go the distance.

Vitality booked their spot in the BLAST Premier Spring Finals 2022, which commences in June, with a 2-1 victory over G2 Esports in the play-in finals.

Vitality had beaten MIBR in the previous round and were the first of three teams to qualify on Saturday along with OG and FaZe Clan, who beat Ninjas In Pyjamas and BIG respectively.

OG, in fact, finished the entire qualifying process unbeaten, having won each of their three matches in the group stage to move straight to the play-in finals.

FaZe also won their group stage final encounter to do the same, but Vitality were beaten in the Group C final, so had to play an extra match in the play-in stage.

ZywOo feeling positive

That did not seem to bother them though and "ZywOo" has has spoken about the stability and positivity within the Team Vitality camp right now.

Speaking after the Blast Premier Spring encounter, "ZywOo" said: "For me, I didn't have a lot of changes except for the language. I feel confident and comfortable on the team because not a lot has changed for me.

"I feel comfortable and confident - like people say I need to kill, feel comfortable. There's a good mood within the team; I'm really happy with this team."
