OG thrash Yellow Submarine 2-0 to secure a place in the upper bracket of ESL One Germany playoffs

OG put their loss against Alliance behind them as they took Yellow Submarine to the cleaners in two 35 minute games to secrure a place in the upper bracket of the ESL One Germany playoffs.

Game 1 saw OG go with a core Silencer – a hero OG can and have played in any and every postion. It didn’t do too well against Alliance when Ceb played it as an offlaner, but was a lot more effective in the hands of MidOne.

In game 2 , OG mixed it up a bit by putting Topson on Silencer and getting MidOne on Riki, a hero that was a really popular carry a few patches ago, but not so much right now. But MidOne seemed to have no problem on the Stealth Assassin as he ended with the game 15/2/12 with a rampage. Even though Yellow Submarine didn’t put up too much of a fight, their mid ‘mio’ had two very good performances on Invoker and Lina.

With that win, OG secure their third series win in ESL One Germany and secure a place in the playoffs. For Yellow Submarine, there is still one more chance to make it to the upper bracket. They stand at a score of 2-2, so the next loss will drop them to the lower bracket, but with a win, they can get into the upper bracket.

ESL One Germany deploys a slightly modified version of the Swiss format – any team to win three series is through. Allilance and Team Secret qualified with a perfect score of 3-0, so they will have the best seeds for the playoffs. Teams with a 0-3 or 1-3 score are eliminated – which here would be Winstrike Team, HellRaisers, EXTREMUM and Tempo Esports. Four teams who end up with a score of 2-3 will drop to the lower bracket. The groups stages end tomorrow, the 18th of October and the playoffs will begin on the 23rd of October.
