The third day of Pool Play at the CWL Pro League Qualifier has come and gone, leaving behind plenty of surprising results as we head into the final day before Sunday’s playoffs.

During the first few days of the Qualifier, just about has gone to plan as top teams have crumbled under the expectations laid before them.

As such, only one team, Midnight Esports, has qualified for the CWL Pro League and only two teams, Nation of Power and Team Divine, have been eliminated from contention, leaving the other 25 teams to fight for the final 11 spots in the Pro League.

Coming into Day Three, there were four teams that we outlined who needed to step things up to avoid certain disaster. Only two of them have done so, with the remaining two hanging on for dear life heading into Day Four.

100 Thieves managed to right the ship with a perfect 2-0 day that put them in position to possibly manage a second place finish in Group C despite a lackluster Days One and Two.

Red Reserve played just one series on Day Three, but they certainly made it count, taking out the previously undefeated Mindfreak 3-1 to even up their record in Pool D at 2-2.

FaZe Clan, on the other hand, came up short in their only game of Day Three, getting crushed by Team Reciprocity in a quick 3-0 series. Sitting at 1-3 and tied for last place in Pool A, FaZe is on the verge of missing out on the Pro League altogether.

Lightning Pandas also couldn’t manage to right the ship, losing their only match against Fact Revolution ina 3-2 nailbiter. With no wins on the books thus far, Lightning Pandas will need a miracle to earn a spot in the Pro League.

On the other side of the table, both Team Envy and Mindfreak look poised to advance to the Pro League from Pool Play as both sit atop their Pool B and Pool D with 4-0 and 4-1 records, respectively. Barring some last-minute slipups, they should surely be the next teams to lock up their spots early on Day Four.
