Virtus.pro's reshuffle changes first matchups of PGL Major Stockholm 2021
The PGL Major Stockholm 2021 organizers have made some changes to the list of starting matches of the tournament. The reason was the change in Virtus.pro’s seeding, which resulted in losing 20% of their RMR-points after replacing Sanjar "SANJI" Kuliev with Evgeny "FL1T" Lebedev.
Due to the reshuffle, Virtus.rpo switched places in the standings with Entropiq, which changed their opponents in the starting fight of the championship. Virtus.pro, who were originally supposed to face BIG, will play against paiN. In turn, Entropiq will encounter the German team instead of the Brazilians.
The updated list of first matchups at PGL Major Stockholm 2021:
Astralis – Copenhagen Flames
FaZe – Team Spirit
ENCE – GODSENT
Entropiq – BIG
Virtus.pro – paiN
Movistar Riders – Renegades
Heroic – TYLOO
MOUZ – Sharks
The Challengers Stage, from which only eight best teams will advance to the next stage, will take place on October 26-29. All the matches will be played in a best-of-one format, while a best-of-three one will be used only for promotion or elimination matches.
