Worlds 2021 QuarterFinals: Overview, Teams, Schedule, and Stream. The Group Stage of Worlds 2021 has concluded and what an entertaining competition it has been so far. There have been a lot of tie-breakers to determine the teams who can advance into the quarter-finals. The top teams of each group will now go up against the second-ranking team in the QuarterFinals.
Worlds 2021 QuarterFinals: Overview
From Group A, the last year’s world champions, Damwon KIA cruised easily to the top spot as they were undefeated in all their six games. There were two tie-breakers here. In the first one, Rouge won against FunPlus Phoenix but then went on to lose the next one against Cloud 9. Thus Cloud 9 qualified for the Quarter Finals, becoming the only North American team left in the tournament.
For Group B, it was straightforward. There were no tie-breakers and both T1 and EDward Gaming qualified with match scores of 5-1 and 4-2 respectively.
In Group C, the qualifying two teams were known by the end of the day, which were Hanwa Life Esports and Royal Never Give Up. But both HLE and RNG had to battle up to determine the top team of the group and this battle was won by RNG after a close game.
Group D was the most entertaining one so far. It was the first time in World’s history that all four teams got tied with a 3-3 score at the end of the day. Thus we saw three tie-breaking matches to determine the final standing. In the first match, Gen.G defeated Team Liquid while in the second match MAD Lions narrowly defeated LNG Esports. Both MAD and Gen.G duked it out in the last qualifier but it was Gen.G who came on top at last. Thus Gen.G became the top team of Group D followed by MAD Lions.
