After six days of round robin, six teams have advanced to NGE Winter Premiere's Group Play Phase 2, which will decide the four teams that will advance to the Live Finals, with the chance to take home up to $40,000. 

Up-and-coming Immortals is currently the favorite to win the tournament thanks to a strong showing in Group Play Phase 1. They're followed closely behind by Kungarna, who came in second overall during the first phase and was the only team to beat them. Team Liquid, Renegades, Luminosity Gaming and compLexity Gaming trailed both teams in Group Play Phase 1, but will have a chance to redeem themselves this next round of play. We have a full rundown of what happened in Group Play Phase 1 here.
