December 15 will be the last day of the group stage before we head to the playoffs. But before we get to the quarterfinals, two of the eight competing teams will need to be sent home first.
And it's the unlucky Outsiders and G2 who are fighting to be among the surviving teams from Group A, after they've both had disappointing starts to the tournament. The loser of this match will be sent home, while the winner will cling on in the competition and head onto the playoffs, beginning with the quarterfinals on December 16.
From there, the heat will really be on as the six remaining teams will see who can make it all the way to the grand final - and claim the winner's share of the $1,000,000 prize pool.
The Group A Elimination Match will take place at 06:00 AM GMT on December 15, and you can watch the match from the comfort of your own home here on Luckbox.

BLAST Premier World Final 2022: Outsiders vs G2 predictions
While both teams lost their opening matches in 2-1 defeats, it's arguably Outsiders who have had the more disappointing start. They were favoured to win against rivals Team Liquid in their opening match, but ultimately met with a disappointing 2-1 defeat. Still, Outsiders shouldn't be written off just yet - they were crowned the champions of the IEM Rio Major in November this year for a reason, and there's still plenty of time to turn their fortunes around.
G2 meanwhile were the underdogs coming into their first match, going up against multi-Major winners FaZe Clan. They started off promising by taking the first map, Nuke, in a 16:10 win. Unfortunately for G2 though they were ultimately locked out by FaZe Clan, who took Inferno and Ancient with scores of 19:17 and 16:4, respectively. The team are bound to be a little bruised following that domination on Ancient, but the heat is on as they face elimination - and their last chance for a tournament win this year.
Outsiders are favoured to win here, with odds of 1.65 vs G2's 2.10. Still, Outsiders was also favoured to win against Team Liquid and ultimately fell short - So there's still hope that G2 can hang on and make it to the playoffs.
The tension is ramping up as we head into the last matches of the group stage. Eight teams will soon be whittled down to six - with either Outsiders or G2 taking a ticket home.
