Cyclone VG Stay at Top of Europe Despite Finishing 3rd in Week 2

Sun 19th Mar 2017 - 10:19pm General

After taking first place in the first week of VG8, expectations were anything but low for WalDeMar and the boys in week 2. Unfortunately, we couldn’t win back to back weeks, as Fnatic’s resurgence from Week 1 was a bit too much. Luckily, we did manage to take out Rising Lotus in the first round and get a win over SK Gaming in the 3rd place match. That means there are 2 weeks remaining in the split, so we can easily claw back to the top of the rankings. Let’s not worry about that just yet though, as it is now time to recap this week’s games.
