Epic League Group Stage: Second Weekend

By Matt DixonNovember 23, 2020
It’s been another exciting week of the EPIC League group stage. Now that we’re another week in, we have a much clearer idea of who is performing well and who has a lot of winning to do to catch up.

Just Error: definitely just errors at this point

The ex-Virtus.pro + Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan roster looked very promising on paper, but the team clearly has a lot of work to do to live up to the expectations. They’re currently sitting on a disappointing 1-5 record with only three series left to make up for it. They’ll have to seriously step up their performance at EPIC League if they want to make it to the playoffs, but that also depends on their fellow bottom-placed teams, Alliance and Team Liquid, doing particularly poorly. Both of those teams hold a 1-4 record themselves, meaning we’re likely to see a desperate competition between these three to avoid the bottom two places. Those two will be relegated to EPIC League Division 2.

Vikin maintain their excellent performance

Vikin.gg have been off to a solid start to EPIC League so far, earning a very respectable 4-1 score, falling only to Alliance after mid player Miroslav "BOOM" Bičan was unable to play due to internet issues.
Jason "TANNER" Weedon took his place for game two of the series, however they were unable to find victory, breaking their perfect 4-0 streak. However, after beating both Team Secret and OG 2-0, Vikin.gg can feel confident going into the rest of the group stage.
##Virtus.pro’s new roster proves they deserved their promotion
Virtus.pro’s new roster was recently their secondary team: VP.Prodigy. Afte surpassing the main team for several months, they were promoted to the main roster. EPIC League is their first event since that, and they are maintaining the sort of performance we previously expected of the VP name with a clean 4-0 score so far. They have some challenging matches to come, including against Team Secret who are still a threat to any team as well as Vikin.gg, the current team catching everyone’s attention. Either way, Virtus.pro are easily on track to make it far in this event.
There’s another busy week of EPIC League ahead of us: keep an eye on our event hub to keep up with it all!
