Both TI4 finalists finish in bottom four of Group B, CDEC and EHOME prevail

In an unexpected turn of events both of TI4's grand finalists, Vici Gaming and Newbee found themselves out of the top 4 of Group B, and could now face early elimination in the very unforgiving best-of-1 opening lower-bracket matches at the main event. Newbee received a questionable direct invite and with limited appearances recently were a mystery, but VG's placement is further proof that the team has hit a rough patch.  


Newbee were TI4 finalists, now both them and VG face a rough road ahead

One draw too many for Vici Gaming and Newbee

Newbee opened well in the groupstages, a draw with Team EG and VP was a surprising start and opened people's minds to the possibility that Newbee were here to play, unlike their performance at DAC. However, the trend of drawing matches was a recurring theme for the TI4 winners here in the groupstages and the team ended up drawing 6 of their seven games.

With a bo2 format that rewards 3 points for a 2-0 victory, opposed to only 1 point for a draw, the fact Newbee did not win a single match 2-0 proved fatal. One win would have allowed them to challenge for 4th in the group.
