OpTic Apex have secured their spot in the winners bracket with time to spare. Skittlecakes helped them there with one of the plays of the tournament, securing a big win near Geyser.
OpTic Gaming took a HUGE leap towards the ALGS Playoff finals. They guaranteed a top 20 finish with 6 games left to play. The trio, newly signed yesterday, were the pre tournament favourites.
Team Liquid also continued their strong form, and they sit tied with OpTic at the top of the overall standings.
Both teams will enter the winners bracket, and have two chances to make the ALGS Playoff Finals tomorrow.
NRG and SCARZ struggles continue at ALGS LAN (A vs C)
Both NRG and Scarz are outside the top 20 as things stand, with NRG in 22nd and Scarz in 34th. Both need strong games in the final 6 matches.
OpTic Gaming find top form
Newly signed OpTic Gaming found the form that saw the trio of Knoqd, Dooplex and Skittlecakes win the NA Pro League split 2. The all american team dominated the second set of matches from start to finish.
The trio showed their new bosses at OpTic why they are one of the most feared teams anywhere in the world. They dismantled Team Burger in a very steady paced 3v3 on their way to a victory on Storm Point.
Knoqd, Skittlecakes and Dooplex are one of the very best team fighters in the world. The team has perfect chemistry and synergy in game.
Skittlecakes INSANE clutch
However, that is not to say that each player does not have strong individual skill. Skittlecakes has already laid a big claim on the best individual play of the whole tournament, as he danced around several shield swaps to secure a big massive victory.
There had been accusations and speculation that Skittlecakes might not be totally legit – he is just that good that people assume he must be cheating. OpTic will be delighted that he has put that rumour to bed once and for all.
