The opening day of ESL One Birmingham Major was a brutal one, sending home three teams – Evil Geniuses, ViCi Gaming and Newbee already. Three more teams will be eliminated tomorrow before the main event even kicks off. 

ESL One Birmingham Major opening day was full of surprises, tipping, chatwheel spam and heartbreaks. The brutal format that sends teams home after only two series of competition on the first day meant that three teams already would be packing up their DPC hopes and their bags. Tomorrow won’t be much better for another three teams will be facing the same fate. 

Group A

The opening match between Evil Geniuses and fnatic was everything that everyone had expected and then some. In a thrilling first match that started out close and ended with a base race also saw Io with Desolator, next level decision making, and incredible wombo-combos. It was Fnatic that took the victory in the end, delivering the first nail in EG’s coffin.
