What's Happening in Esports from August 1st to August 7th

Here is your schedule for August 1st to August 7th.

 

Congratulations to London Spitfire for winning Overwatch League playoffs!

London Spitfire concludes their redemption path after Stage 3 and 4 by convincingly beating Philadelphia Fusion. Both teams were underdogs in the semifinals but both of them have risen to the occasion and now Spitfire took it all the way!

Overwatch league now takes a long break!

Cloud9 just started their road to redemption, beating Team Liquid, Echo Fox and TSM in their last 4 games. TSM is now very close to the bottom of the standings once again, the team completely lacks proactivity and despite their great individual roster still struggling to find any rhythm what-so-ever.

In EU LCS, G2 continues to fall and now occupy the 3rd place, while Fnatic climbed to 2nd. Misfits picked up another loss, this time against Splyce. Despite all that, these 3 teams are distant from non-playoff zone.

KingZone helped SKT's road to redemption when they defeated Hanwha life Esports, and now faker & co have a decent chance of making an appearance in the playoffs. Griffin lost yet another game and it's starting to get worrisome for the no1 team in Korea, as they share the top of the standings with KingZone and possibly with Gen.G and KT Rollster as well if they win their matches this week.

IG and Rogue Warriors distance themselves even further from the rest of their respective groups. LPL still has 5 weeks of regular season, so it still early to say they locked 1st place in their groups, but it's quite likely.

ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier was awesome and the competition couldn't be tougher. Astralis, however, won the tournament without losing a single map! The danish team was on fire and in sync, defeating everyone with ease and completely demolishing Team Liquid on inferno in the finals!

Intel Extreme Masters XIII - Shanghai starts today and will resume next monday, August 6th! Most of the best teams in the world decided to skip this tournament, as it started right after ELEAGUE Premier, but we can still see great teams like Virtus.Pro, Tyloo and Gambit!
