There probably aren't a lot of people who could have predicted these teams as the ones to go 0-2 on the day. The new look NiP with Fredrik "REZ" Sterner played amazingly on Day 1.


A surprise upset victory highlighted the first round of the day. Space Soldiers was able to take a win off of one of the world's best teams in SK Gaming, blowing by them in the first half.


Cloud9 and Na'Vi in round two put on a marathon, playing 60+ rounds of CS before Na'Vi sealed the victory. Virtus.pro continues to play poorly and have an 0-2 hanging over them going into the rest of the tournament.


More surprises will be in store as the tournament moves into Day 2. At the end of it, two of these unlikely teams will have made it to the playoffs.
