Gaimin Gladiators Lead the Pack

Gaimin Gladiators had a stellar opening day, leading Group A with a perfect 4-0 score. They secured convincing victories against Xtreme Gaming and PSG Quest, showcasing their strong form and strategic prowess. This performance is especially notable given Xtreme Gaming’s recent runner-up finish at the PGL Wallachia.

PSG Quest Struggles

In contrast, PSG Quest had a tough start, ending the day without a single win. Despite being a dark horse with a recent top 6 finish in the Elite League, they couldn’t find their footing. The team has two more days to turn things around, but they need to make significant improvements quickly. Meanwhile, Xtreme Gaming, HEROIC, Aurora, and Team Liquid each recorded one win and one loss, keeping the competition in Group A tight.
