On January 14, Astralis Talent faced fnatic Rising in a Bo3. The winner would remain alive in the tournament, while the loser would sit out for the season.
After being severely outplayed and losing the first map to Ancient 1-16, things looked dire for “trace” and his Counter-Strike skills. What happened next, no one foresaw.
The following maps against fnatic Rising went 16-14, 16-14, removing fnatic Rising from contention and advancing to round 2 of the Gauntlet phase.
