After North established a 10-5 advantage during the first half, Gambit surged back in the second with a 10-5 of its own, forcing the game into the first OT. A tied 3-3 in the first brought up 2OT, and on match point, it was Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke and René “cajunb” Borg who came up big for the win.

North, a squad of former Dignitas and FaZe Clan pros picked up by football club F.C. Copenhagen, took 5th-8th in its first showing at the ELEAGUE Major. After the win over Gambit, the squad will move on to the semifinals and its highest-ever placing in a tournament after only a few weeks together with the current roster.

Definitely could use CSGO in the title, but other then that I’m loving the new Esports section.

The game currently running between VP and Mous is worth watching. Some incredible play on both sides.
