Gambit - Latest performance & results
is a Russian Tier-2 team, which is gradually getting closer and closer to the top of the world. The IEM Katowice is the first true test for the team that has been so successful in recent months. In the play-ins Gambit
defeated both the Brazilian TeamOne
and qualified directly for the main competition. After a first-round loss to Evil Geniuses
, the team fought their way back into the tournament with two wins and will play G2
in the lower-bracket final for a spot in the playoffs.
Another victory in the duel with mousesports, in which Gambit won quite clearly on Dust2 and Vertigo, was followed by a great performance against Heroic . In the semifinals of the lower-bracket the team won after two exciting maps on the decider Mirage with 16:03 and gave the Danish top team no chance. An incredible success for the Russian newcomers. Between Gambit and G2 , given the odds, the team is in a slight underdog role.
G2 - Latest performance & results
For G2, the first tournaments did not go according to plan after the new signing of NiKo
. In the new year, a 5-6th place at the BLAST Premier: Global Finals and a 7th-9th place at the Spring Groups are on the books. Thus the team did not succeed in qualifying for the Spring Finals for the time being. Through the Showdown, the team will have to duel Astralis
, among others, for the last two remaining spots. Given the odds, G2
goes into the match against Gambit
as a slight favorite.
The IEM Katowice 2021 also started with a bitter defeat in the duel with Spirit . With 1:2 the European mixed team lost to the Russian lineup. In the lower bracket, however, G2 has so far limited the damage and emerged victorious from the games against the BIG Clan and Evil Geniuses . While the duel against the German top team was convincing, G2 won against Evil Geniuses on both maps with 16:14 and therefore also a bit lucky.
