BIG ascending the summit

North won a Grand Final, haters.

Okay, okay, it was the '7th Place Decider Bracket' Grand Final, but aizyesque is taking what he can get right now.

North took NiP down in two maps to secure a hefty chunk of Road to Rio points - which are damn useful, given they lose some for bringing Kristou in. MSL and aizy duo'd to bring down the Ninjas, who were, as is tradition, impressive until they weren't at cs_summit.

There were other, less minor, successes, too. BIG continued their destructive online form by steamrolling Fnatic to take on Vitality - our other major winners - in the upper bracket, today.

Heroic took out Fnatic to stay in the race for the top spot, thanks to some vintage... well, a side of cadiaN we've not seen in a long time. He and niko were the top performers on Heroic, oddly. OG confirmed themselves in the top four (even though they're lucky to even HAVE a chance at qualifying, as they lost to GODSENT at the Minor) after beating... GODSENT. Weird how that works out.

GODSENT themselves impressed again, and can secure 5th if they beat Fnatic. Maybe farlig is an upgrade on Maikelele????????

The biggest losers of summit are mousesports. Like, they were just... losers this time around. They didn't win a map, losing 0-2 to both GODSENT and Fnatic. They ended up coming joint last with FATE, which is quite poetic, really.

FaZe had to beat Movistar Riders to secure an 11th place finish and grab a few leftover crumbs of the loaf of RTR points, while G2 and ENCE took 9th and 10th. Not exactly brilliant results for them, either.

Over in NA, MIBR are in with a real chance of missing out on their home Major (should it go ahead, that is) as they finished joint last with d̶i̶s̶g̶u̶s̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶c̶h̶e̶a̶t̶e̶r̶s̶ Chaos, who were unable to win a game at cs_summit. Weird. Maybe both teams just aren't that great? (It should be said, Chaos are playing without steel, for... obvious reasons)

One of Liquid, EG, 100 Thieves or Gen.G (who played last night, but due to not being on gamer time here in Europe, we will miss) will win the whole thing, which is hardly surprising. It's good to see EG back again, though. We missed those guys.
