The first day of the WeSave! Charity Play tournament is in the books, with the first three teams from North America, CIS, and Southeast Asia being eliminated.
B8, BOOM Esports, and Cloud9 all lost their opening series and were knocked out of the single-elimination bracket for their individual regions.
Starting in SEA, BOOM was unable to close things out against Geek Fam, losing the opening series 2-1 despite playing well in the last two rounds. Game one was a complete blowout that Alfi “Khezcute” Nelphyana and his team were unable to come back from even after winning game two.
Game three was a slow collapse, as Geek Fam held a lead for almost the entire match, eventually securing 13 kills in a 10-minute span to crush any chance BOOM had at making another run.
B8 was the next team to be sent packing as Dendi and his team faced off against Natus Vincere in two close rounds that saw the newer organization leading early in both games. An inability to finish out games strongly hurt B8 badly, leading to a 2-0 loss where it easily could have gone the other way.
Lastly, Cloud9 came into the event having not won a single game with its current roster, which changed immediately as EternaLEnVy and Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu took down their former team quickly in the opening game.
CR4ZY fought back into the game with some great late game builds that led to Jonathan “Bryle” De Guia and KheZu outplaying their C9 counterparts. Game three was pretty one-sided, leading to C9 being eliminated in the first round of yet another tournament even after looking good in the early going.
