ESL One Birmingham Online for the South and North American region has been in its playoff stage since a few days ago, and now only three teams remain in the event.
After the group stages of ESL One Birmingham Online: NA & SA culminated a few days ago, the top four teams moved on into the playoff stage – which would oddly only see the four North American teams remaining, while both beastcoast and Thunder Predator became the first two teams to be eliminated. Going into the playoff bracket, CR4ZY seemed as though they were set to take all the spoils after going unbeaten throughout the group stage of the event. However, when they met with Quincy Crew for the second time they were not able to find their footing as QC secured a solid 2-0 victory and pushed themselves into the grand finals, where they now await their challenger.
In the lower bracket, we found both Evil Geniuses and business associates, who fought for their tournament lives just yesterday. While ba were victorious in the first game and things seemed dire for EG, their stand-in, Eric ‘Ryoya’ Dong, came out shinning, helping the squad to survive for the day, while business associates would be eliminated from the event.
The victory will now see EG take on CR4ZY later today, with the victor securing a best-of-five grand final against Quincy Crew, which will take place on Sunday, June 7th – while the losing team will exit ESL One Birmingham Online: South and North America in third place.
