IEM Katowice has been a complete rollercoaster thus far. Furia, a former Major semifinalist, was defeated early on by the underdog IHC. IHC went a step further and defeated Cloud9 in the process, demonstrating that their victory over Furia wasn’t an accident.
As a result, the lower bracket, which includes teams like Liquid, FaZe, and former major champion Outsiders has been dubbed the bracket of death. On the other side, favorites like G2 and NAVI, who have been perfect so far, are found in the higher bracket and will compete there. By defeating FaZe Clan today, G2 also became the first group at the Spodek Arena to earn a spot in the playoffs.
