have advanced from group D in first and second place respectively.
Underestimated rather unexpectedly took down Loaded
in their first game of the day then strolled through yadlla
to secure their placement in the quarter finals. H2k Gaming on the other hand, after also demolishing yadlla, were forced to settle for a draw with Loaded which set up an intriguing finale within the group. The rocky Swedes had to win to be completely sure of advancing while Loaded were required to win big and hope that H2k were stopped by Underestimated in order for them to progress.
With Underestimated having defeated Loaded earlier in the day, something H2k failed to pull off, the tie
had all the makings of a thrilling encounter. Joe 'spyro' Perez
of Underestimated pulled off a smart 1v3 in the opening pistol round which briefly set the tone for an exciting game but from thereon the Americans were massively outclassed by the young Swedish side. Niklas 'niko' Johansson
's AWP and rifle play was key in H2k's comfortable first half win which saw all of the players perform when required.
The second half was over quickly after H2k took the pistol round as well as the top group spot that Underestimated had in their grasp for the entire day. What this spells in terms of fixtures for the teams remains to be seen but the draw for the quarter finals is expected soon.
