100 Thieves upset EG, eliminate them from IEM Katowice

One of the favorites to win IEM Katowice has been sent home earlier than expected. 100 Thieves beat Evil Geniuses 2-1 today in IEM Katowice’s Group B lower bracket semifinal.

The Australian CS:GO squad reverse swept EG to stay alive in the tournament. 100 Thieves will have to win one more best-of-three series to qualify for the quarterfinals, this time against another favorite, mousesports.

Although EG won the first map, they actually lost the first half 10-5 and got back into the game due to an incredible effort on their T-side, winning the first seven rounds. EG’s captain, stanislaw, was the top fragger with 24 kills and a 1.44 rating, which helped his team win 16-12.
