7.22 update, released shortly before the launch of ESL One Birmingham, along with new items and skills led to the adding Mars to competitive. LAN debut of the character was not very successful: ViCi Gaming took it in the first two matches to have a draw against Team Liquid, and in just the first day Mars was taken eight times but won only twice.
In group A, OG takes the first place with a 3:1 result. Forward Gaming takes the last place with a negative score of 1:3, and all other teams share second place with a score of 2:2. The group is equal in strength, almost all the games between the teams ended in a draw 1:1.
In group B, there are surprises: Team Secret, two Majors winners, are absolutely blank - a defeat from EG and a draw with PSG.LGD. No Alliance wins so far, they've lost to Gambit and Keen Gaming. The top line in the group is occupied by Evil Geniuses with a score of 4:0.
At the moment, almost all teams, except, perhaps, Alliance, retain a chance for playoffs.
