It's that time of year again, the wind howls in the night, and the rain tickles the kitchen window. You're inside, comfortably under a blanket as you warm your hands to a cup of hot coco. And you watch people shooting each other.

Admittedly it doesn't really fit the season, but we're gamers. We don't care about seasons.

And neither does Gambit apparently. They went flying through the group stage like they were a MiG 28 trying to shoot down Tom Cruise.

Hot out of the groupstage, they face a tough first opponent, Astralis. Tough, but not unbeatable, as demonstrated by GODSENT earlier on in the tournament. Godspeed Gambit. At least they got the CIS upset factor like Spir... oh wait.

We're glad to report both the Colossus and the Juggernaut are in the playoffs as well. Like an old diesel engine, they both sputtered and stuttered a bit on start-up, but managed to recuperate, and now face a revitalised mousesports and a strong as ever FURIA respectively.

Perhaps the most interesting matchup will be Heroic against GODSENT. Heroic had a very good showing in the group stage, with the only close matchup being the last map of their Bo3 against Team Spirit - which saw a staggering 54 rounds being played.

GODSENT on the other hand, had a good start beating Astralis, but falling to their rival for the *"budget FaZe"-*nickname, mousesports. In the end maden and co. managed to squeeze through to the playoffs by beating North.
