First day of the group stage is over, which means we know the first team that secured their spot in the playoffs. Endpoint played incredibly well today and managed to come out on top of the group A bracket.
Endpoint is a team with 3 players from the United Kingdom in today’s roster. Thomas ‘Thomas’ Utting replaced Shahar “flameZ” Shushan in their matches and showed that he is in great shape and they can win even with a stand-in. They are currently placed at 29th position in the HLTV”s ranking and are at their peak right now. Thanks to their great results lately, they qualified for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown 2021 where they will compete against best teams in the world such as G2 Esports in their opening match or Astralis/OG if they win their first game.
The core of the lineup has been playing in the team for over a year now, which makes the team very stable and well organized. In their opening match in the European Development Championship season 3 they faced 100PG, and then Trident in the group’s final. Although they lost the second map in the final, they managed to pick up the third one and proceeded to the playoffs. Both MVP titles for their matches went to Kia ‘Surreal’ Man who was phenomenal today, and will now compete in the quarterfinals.
