When we look at the ranking, Natus Vincere greets us at the top. We can say that G2 Esports also performed above expectations, but the opponents they faced were not very strong. Brazilian team FURIA Esports also had an excellent Legends Stage and finished fifth. Fans might have expected a better performance from Team Vitality, but they still managed to make it to the Champions Stage.
Looking at the teams that failed to reach the Champions Stage, Entropiq and Copenhagen Flames performed above expectations, but it was not enough to move them forward. FaZe Clan and Astralis placed 11th and 12th, respectively. Fans of both teams are not very happy with this situation. They had expected a better performance. Team Liquid and ENCE were also among the teams that fell short of expectations.
