DC advanced into the next round of the lower bracket at The Summit 5 today, taking their series against FDL in the lower bracket 2-0, and eliminating FDL from the tournament in the process.
OG and Fnatic kicked off their Summit 5 campaigns strongly, with wins against FDL and DC respectively before facing off in a hard-fought series.
Bundled with the announcement that Liquid, OG and Na'Vi have been directly invited to The Summit 5 is the start of the redemption vote.
