Elsewhere, against All authority Rat had previously looked like a sure thing to qualify for the next stage. But narrow defeats to SK, eMg and Fnatic wow has seem them slump to second bottom in the group. Even a win in their last game probably won't be enough to save them from elimination unless other results go their way.
Europe's other representative in Dallas is looking fairly solid, however. A mixed bag of results for x6tence has been kept in good shape thanks to some impressive anti-RMP performances. But the Spaniards have not performed so well against more unusual setups such as the rogue/'lock/shaman of Fnatic.
Like aAa, Button Bashers has been slightly disappointing. The IEM world champions are sitting at the wrong end of the group table with a 2-3 match record. The saving grace for the Koreans is that they still have two games left to play. Victories over eMg and Fnatic will put them back in contention, but both those teams will be tough for the RMP to beat.
