Takeaways from Playday 8
XSET and Astralis are qualified for the major after their most impressive match of the stage yet
The two were pretty much equal the whole game, which is unusual given how defender-oriented Siege can be.
Earlier in the day, Astralis qualified for the Major. XSET was competing for a berth; they wanted to make it to overtime in order to get the guaranteedspot.
Astralis' statistical leader was David "iconic" Ifidon, however this game was essentially a showdown between two Major teams. At the Charlotte Major, both will represent the North American division.
DarkZero and Spacestation will fight to the end for the last slot
These two teams will give their all to get the final slot and this is a must-watch event.
DarkZero and Spacestation are effectively in a "win and in" game in terms of Major competition due to the way points are assigned and the tiebreaker situations.
DarkZero has a one-point advantage. DarkZero is on points if they win in any way.
If Spacestation wins in regulation, they will be in the lead. If Spacestation wins in Overtime, the tiebreaker is determined by round differential, which Spacestation would have if they prevailed.
Nothing else matters to these two groups. On the last playday, it's the only encounter that counts for Major qualifiers. It's going to be fifty minutes of nonstop action.
Do not miss this one in case you are excited to see who will be the last team to board the plane to Charlotte.
Who qualified for the Six Charlotte Major 2022?
Three teams qualified for the Charlotte Major that will be played through May 16th to 22th. After Mirage defeated beastcoast in a surprising comeback regarding their overall performance in the stage, this win sent Astralis and Oxygen to the event by affecting the overall results table.
XSET went to overtime with Astralis, earning them a spot in the Major by points.
Overall, NA appears to be in good shape. Oxygen appears to be a powerful squad, Astralis appears to be lethal, and XSET's aggressive play is reaping rewards in offensive rounds.
