The double-elimination style knockout rounds of i46 have been running here in Telford all day, and now as we near the completion of this section of the tournament there is a pattern emerging: 2-0 victories by the American teams.
The first North America vs Europe battle came in the form of Leviathan Gaming vs TCM Gaming, in the second round of elimination games. A strong start to the game by TCM saw them pull out an initial lead of two rounds on cp_badlands, with kaidus beating b4nny to middle quite comfortably, but a sudden pause by the admins reset the momentum of the game and LG eventually came out victorious with a 5-3 score. This renewed confidence inspired LG to a further 5-2 victory on cp_gullywash, knocking TCM down into the lower bracket. First blood to the Americans, followed up by a comprehensive 2-0 victory by Classic Mixup over Quarantine.
