Tonight’s episode is about compLexity Gaming’s last day in the North American qualifiers for TI7 and about OG’s mental preparation before going to Seattle this year. While coL are a team that strived for a place among the 18 participants to TI 7, OG are the four time Major Champions, a legacy that places them as one of the main favorites to win it all, even though we learn from this second episode, that they are choosing to see the things differently.
