The North American E-sports organisation Cloud9 are through to the fifth round of the ELEAGUE Major’s New Legends Stage after easing past the danes from Astralis 16-6 on Train
Cloud9 started the match off on the right foot, securing a quick 3-0 lead after picking up their T-side pistol with a B execution. In the first gun round, Will “RUSH” Wierzba and Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham further extended their team’s lead after winning a 2v4 situation
After getting their economy back on track, Astralis held off their opponents two rounds in a row, bringing the deficit to 2-5. The Danes then looked to be in prime position to break Cloud9’s economy after Nicolai “device” Reedtz picked up four kills, but Jake “Stewie2K” Yip had different plans and clutched a 1v2 situation.
The New Legends stage of the ELEAGUE Major: Boston has concluded, and the eight teams moving to the playoffs have been decided.
The full list of teams headed to the playoff stage includes G2 Esports, FaZe Clan, Fnatic, SK, C9, QBF, Na’Vi, and Mouz. They’ll go head-to-head in the final stage of the $1 million Major—the New Champions stage—this weekend from Jan. 26 to 28.
