4 eliminated and 4 advance as DreamLeague S19 Group Stage 1 hits final day

EG, Gaimin Gladiators, Shopify Rebellion, and Team Liquid have stamped their ticket to Group Stage 2.

With just a single day to play in the Group Stage 1 of DreamLeague Season 19, we already know that four teams are heading home, and four are moving on. At the close of day three of the tournament, we said goodbye to Nigma Galaxy, Talon Esports, and Nouns from Group B, and Entity from Group A as they were eliminated from DreamLeague.

Meanwhile, Evil Geniuses, Gaimin Gladiators, and Shopify Rebellion have moved on from Group A leaving a brutal four-way contest for the final spot. In Group B, however, only Team Liquid have escaped the contest, with Tundra Esports, Team Spirit, OG, and beastcoast locked in a tie for second place. 

Just four more teams can advance to the next group stage and these upcoming games are crucial!

If you’re just tuning in today, then we suggest you keep your eyes peeled to two crucial games. The first is TSM vs. Gaimin Gladiators, kicking off 03:00 a.m. PT. This opening matchup of the day will see already qualified GG take on TSM. If TSM can secure the win, it’ll effectively lock in their upper Group Stage position, and eliminate three other teams.

Then, at 05:30 a.m. PT, you have to watch Team Liquid vs beastcoast. This important game will either send beastcoast to the next stage, or see them tumble into the list of those eliminated from DreamLeague, against a team that’s dropped just two games this entire tournament so far.
