Team Sween has pulled off another upset to secure a playoff spot in the 2018 CWL Championship.
A 3-2 win over eUnited puts Team Sween at a 2-0 record in Group D, not only leaving them at the top after the first day but guaranteeing them the first seed heading into the playoffs, despite entering as the lowest seed in the group.
Team Sween’s earlier win, a 3-1 over Splyce, means that they hold the head-to-head record against both teams that could potentially match them at a 2-1 record in the final standings.
With Sween’s final match-up being against an EZG Esports squad that has yet to win a map, however, it seems likely that they’ll simply win out and top the group at 3-0.
Team Sween is something of a rogue’s gallery, a group of leftovers from the UK that never quite found a place on a top team despite plenty of experience and accomplishments under their collective belts. This is a team with a point to prove, and after the first day of the event they’ve already taken the first step towards doing so.
With only one spot left up for grabs, the second playoff qualifier will be determined by a direct head-to-head match-up between Splyce and eUnited. The winner will move to a 2-1 record and advance to the playoffs, the loser will be eliminated.
