The group stage of Mid-Season Invitational 2021 has come to its end. Six teams from eleven that arrived in Reykjavík are going on their race for the champions’ title.
In Group A, there were only three teams as the VCS representatives missed their second international event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Surprisingly, the CIS roster of Unicorns of Love that always did well versus other smaller regions’ teams fell apart and lost to Pentanet.GG from Oceania. Australian team took second place as Royal Never Give Up won all their eight games.
In group B there were a lot of close games. PaiN Gaming were very close to beating MAD Lions but threw the game. Turkish team Istanbul Wildcats was the only one to beat the European powerhouse as the LEC champions won five games and took second place. PSG Talon secured every game against smaller regions and finished second.
The Rumble Stage of Mid-Season Invitational 2021 starts on May 14. The four best teams out of six will get through to the semifinals.
