EPICENTER reaches playoffs, EG vs. Na'Vi & Heroic vs. forZe to kick things off

The playoffs have been reached at EPICENTER and it’s set us up for a good set of matches. Vitality and mousesports are currently awaiting the winners of Saturday’s quarterfinals matches for their Sunday semifinal games.

Heroic will take on the fiery looking forZe in the first quarterfinal match on Saturday. Heroic have shown plenty of back and forth whereas forZe seems to have come alive in their recent matches. After losing to Evil Geniuses in their opener, forZe defeated the new Virtus.pro lineup before getting revenge in a 2-1 victory over EG. Heroic, on the other hand, faced two losses to Natus Vincere and one victory over EHOME to earn their place in the playoffs. The winner of Heroic and forZe will take on Vitality in the first semifinal.

The other side of the bracket pins Na’Vi against EG in what was the ability to be one of the best matches of the event. Na’Vi fell 2-1 to Vitality and defeated Heroic 2-0 and 2-1 as previously mentioned to find themself in the quarterfinals. EG managed to take down forZe with a stand-in in their opening match before falling 2-0 to mousesports. Once Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte rejoined the lineup it seemed a rematch with forZe would only get easier, but instead it was forZe who looked to have gotten an easier path in their 2-1 win. The winner of Na’Vi and EG will take on mousesports in the second semifinal.
