ImageDay one of the IEM6 WC Hannover is now over and we can look back at some of the matches and what is waiting for us tomorrow.

The day started with a match between two American teams, US Team Dignitas and CA Counter Logic Gaming . Group A went as expected according to our Group A preview, which you can read here. US Team Dignitas will advance directly to the Semi-Finals, while CA Counter Logic Gaming and FR against All authority advance to the Quarter-Finals.

The two Americans team advance to the knockout stage with only one defeat, US Team Dignitas losing to EU Fnatic and CA Counter Logic Gaming to US Team Dignitas . Nominated for the best 2011 team, EU Fnatic is out of the tournament. After a silence week alike they did last year, everyone expected for a better performance in DE Hannover, but it didn't happen.

A week before the IEM start, ESL announced that FR against All authority would replace CH World Elite due Visa issues enabling the Chinese team arriving to Europe. The French team showed why they should be in this tournament passing the group stage with 2 defeats.

Surprisingly, DE Team ALTERNATE managed to get 6 points against EU Fnatic and FR Millenium . Like FR against All authority , DE Team ALTERNATE came to DE Hannover for the same reason as them. In other hand, FR Millenium finished the day with 0 points losing to every team.



Tomorrow at 9:10 (CET time), Group B will start with a match between US Team SoloMid and US Team Curse . This last team has to play with stand-in because their top laner, US Tom 'SYDTKO' Oh was stuck in a car accident while going to the airport.

Remembering you, EU SK Gaming goes into action against FR Team Sypher at 10:10 (CET Time).
