MDL Chengdu Major Group Stage Results And Matchups
Posted 19th November 2019 By: Derpina    228 Views
Esports News – The MDL Chengdu Major group stage is about to come to a close and the playoff round is ready to kick off. Participating teams are a few matches away from the $1 million prize pool and the 15,000 DPC points. So far, J.Storm and TNC Predator, ESL One Hamburg 2019 champions, dominate the rankings.
Group stage highlights
Eight teams took part in the upper bracket. Losing teams automatically head to the lower brackets to fight for a spot in the next round. Those who suffer two losses can wave goodbye to the title. After the participating teams for the upper and lower brackets are determined, the official group stage began.
Day one saw big matches among TNC Predator, Alliance, Team Liquid, and J.Storm. TNC Predator won ESL One Hamburg, but Alliance also has a title of its own—DreamLeague Season 12. Analysts have predicted that it would be a tough match. In the end, TNC moved on to the next upper bracket matches together with J.Storm. Regardless of the upcoming results, TNC’s victory already grants them the top-six finish at MDL Chengdu. They can climb higher if they win against J.Storm.
In the lower brackets, losing teams get two to three matches to go before qualifying for the playoffs. No one is safe except for TNC Predator. Alliance and Team Liquid will fight for their spots on the third day, while others have to face multiple matches on the second day.
