History repeated itself at PGL Arlington Major 2022

When PGL Arlington Major 2022 started, almost everyone had one favourite team in mind: PSG.LGD. However, the tournament ended quite similarly to The International 10. Team Spirit once again comes from the lower bracket and eradicates PSG.LGD’s hopes of winning.

Today, we will take a look at PSG.LGD and Team Spirit's journey to the grand final at PGL Arlington Major 2022, followed by their encounters in the grand final.

PSG.LGD progressed flawlessly until the grand final

PSG.LGD started the PGL Arlington Major 2022 as expected and finished Group A with 7 wins, and with only 1 draw.

In the upper quarterfinals, their rivals were BOOM Esports. They advanced to the upper bracket semifinals with a score of 2-0 without difficulty.

In the semi-finals, PSG.LGD faced OG, which many consider their biggest rival. However, they were unlikely to be eliminated. Even though OG won the first game, PSG.LGD had no trouble winning the series. In the upper bracket final, they faced Team Spirit. With their win over PSG.LGD at The International 10, Team Spirit had won that huge and prestigious tournament that was almost certain to be won by PSG.LGD. Later, PSG.LGD defeated Team Spirit twice at the Riyadh Masters 2022 by 2-0. Likewise, they defeated their opponents 2-0 in the upper bracket final of PGL Arlington Major 2022. Thus, they made their name to the grand final.

The unyielding Spirit advanced to the grand final

Team Spirit finished third in Group B with 3 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss. Their rivals in the upper quarter-finals were the Outsiders. Outsiders, who can be considered a quite strong opponent for the first round, won the first game. Team Spirit won the series with a comeback.

In the upper bracket semifinals, they were paired with the winner of their group, Team Aster. They beat their opponents, with whom they had drawn in the group stage, 2-0 this time, and qualified for the upper bracket final, against PSG.LGD.

In the upper bracket final, they lost against PSG.LGD as they could not show much presence in both games. Their last chance was against Team Aster. They defeated Team Aster once again, this time 2-1, and qualified to face PSG.LGD again in the grand final.

Recurring grand final

PSG.LGD started the grand final ahead, just like they did in the upper bracket final. Team Spirit, on the other hand, was not going to give up easily this time. While they lost their hopes in The International 10, they reached the championship with their comeback. This time, they won three games in a row. Once again they have dashed PSG.LGD's hopes.
