GenG vs Team Secret Preview

GenG was part of Group C along with Paper Rex and RRQ. The team won its first match against RRQ with a 2-1 score. The next one was the series that would have always been a tough battle for them. GenG lost to PRX on the third map, but they had another rematch against RRQ. This time, they had a similar result (a 2-1 victory) against RRQ to qualify for the Play-In. 

Meanwhile, Team Secret had a relatively better performance in Group B. Granted they did not top the group, but, they were able to win against Talon esports in the match when it mattered the most. They had initially lost to Talon to go down to the elimination match, but a 2-0 victory over DFM meant they had one more opportunity to quaily.
