The newcomers had a fantastic run, however. Arena Pwnage narrowly lost their first game to Loaded before endeavoring to go on a four-match unbeaten run. The crowning jewel for Arena Pwnage was surely their 3-0 domination of last year's MLG champions, compLexity Gaming Black. The triple semi-healer comp just proved to be too durable for coL's damage-centric setup. But in the merry-go-round that equates to MLG's tie-break system they couldn't quite keep up their form from the previous games.
Group B was dominated by compLexity Gaming Red. They were undefeated until their final game, which they lost against another newcomer in the shape of Nerdstompers Black. Hoodrych's team barely missed out on qualifying themselves but Fnatic wow proved too strong. Fnatic's only loss came at the hands of the group winners and they will now go through to play against Loaded Black in bracket play. As for IEM champions Evil Geniuses , they will be disappointed to go out in the group stage.
