The first best-of-two series of EPICENTER: Moscow started between Virtus.pro and SK. Virtus.pro managed a decisive 2-0 win over SK Gaming in the first match of EPICENTER: Moscow (16-9 on Mirage, 16-12 on Cobblestone).

The second series Natus Vincere and dignitas share the spoils at EPICENTER: Moscow after tying their BO2 match 1-1 (6-16 on Mirage and 16-9 on Nuke).
fnatic and HellRaisers played out a 1-1 draw in the first group round at EPICENTER: Moscow (16-13 for HellRaisers on Cache, 16-10 for fnatic on Overpass).
The group A matchup between G2 and NiP goes 1-1 at EPICENTER: Moscow (16-11 for NiP on Cobblestone, 16-9 for G2 on Cache).
The last match for the first day of Epicenter could be seen as a grudge match for G2 as they lost the final of StarSeries Season 2 to NiP, the first map of that series being particularly embarassing for the French. It was the last match of day one at EPICENTER: Moscow.
Let’s expect today’s competitions will be more intense.
