OMEGA League Europe Immortal Division reached its second
last day of group stage action today with three epic series of Dota 2 – which oddly
all finished in three quick one-sided series.
After Natus VIncere defeated Evil Geniuses last week, they
had a massive chance to cause more upsets in OMEGA League EU Immortal Division
today as they went up against Alliance, who were having some struggles to find
their footing so far in the event. However, with Na’Vi also not at their best,
this El Clásico match-up was set to produce some fireworks – or so we hoped.
Unfortunately for Na’Vi, they did not show up in the same way that they did
against EG and with Nikolay ‘Nikobaby’ Nikolov on his signature Faceless Void
for both games, Alliance took a quick 2-0 victory, pushing them into fourth
place in Group A after their five games have concluded.
Next up we would see Group B action as two of the struggling
teams went head-to-head, with the possibility of tiebreakers high depending on
the result. Team Liquid were yet to find a victory in their first three series
and seemed destined to be relegated today but, somehow, the team rallied with

the bottom of Group B after their five games, with Liquid possibly joining them
if they fail to give OG a challenge tomorrow.
For OG, they suffered their first defeat at the tournament
today and it came at the hands of the unstoppable Team Secret squad. Having
dropped only a single game in their march to the top of Group B, Secret have seemed
to have complete control since the start of OMEGA League: EU Immortal Division.
Considering that they have beaten OG in their last five meetings and won their
previous six events during the lockdown period, taking the top honours in their
group was a walk in the park for Secret.
Tomorrow will be the final day of the event’s group stage as
the teams will be looking to solidify their positions as well as avoid
tiebreakers, if possible. For Group B, the top half is decided but the
possibility of tiebreakers between the bottom three is high – while Group A has
a high potential to see quite a few tiebreakers depending on the results of tomorrow’s
