Esports: Eternal Fire and Vitality take big scalps

OG and MOUZ will not attend the PGL Antwerp Major after being eliminated by Eternal Fire and Vitality respectively.

There were two major casualties at PGL Major Antwerp 2022 Europe RMR A on Wednesday, with OG and MOUZ, the world number 19 and 15 respectively, missing out on a slot at the year's first Major, which you can follow on our Sports Live Streaming hub.

OG sent packing

OG, under new leadership from Nemanja 'nexa' Isakovic, lost out in agonising fashion to Eternal Fire, who will make their first-ever Major appearance after 16-14 wins on Vertigo and Dust 2.

The series could have swung either way but OG will rue a missed opportunity on their pick of Vertigo, where they were unable to capitalise on a 7-0 start. Big performances from Ismailcan 'XANTARES' Dortkardeş and Bugra 'Calyx' Arkin were ultimately the difference for Eternal Fire.
