G2 esports went undefeated in the group stage, not even dropping a single map through their five matches. While they won most of their matches with ease, BIG gave them a real challenge, taking them to overtime on both the maps in the series.

Despite a strong showing by BIG, they fell short in the group stage. The German roster was the only team to have posed a serious challenge to G2’s dominance in Group B.

G2 esports advances to the quarterfinals, one step closer to the Grand Finals. Meanwhile, FaZe Clan and Outsiders will also advance to the playoffs, albeit in the round of 20.
