TNC dominates ESL One Hamburg 2019 groups
ESL One Hamburg 2019 groups is almost over and TNC Predator has taken the top seed and is undefeated with only one more series to go.
The second day of the ESL One Hamburg 2019 group stage has come to an end. TNC Predator is the clear winner so far. The revamped SEA team has given fans spectacular performances without dropping a single game yet. They are the only team to have a perfect record so far and have clinched the top seed, giving them a place in the upper brackets for the playoffs.
No teams have been eliminated yet but by the end of the day a total of four teams will be sent home before having a chance to hit the big stage. As of now, no-one is completely out of the event, but few are out of the woods. Fighting Pandas, Vikin.gg and Quincy Crew are in the biggest danger right now, needing to take both games in their final series and hope for some losses from the other teams in their groups that are just treading water right now.
The action resumes at 13:00 CEST with Group A's last series, followed by the last series for teams in Group B.
