Defeats and dramatic moments

One of the frustrating matches was in 2018 when Team Spirit fought against Fnatic in Decider's match in Group A. This loss prevented Team Spirit from Playoffs and an opportunity to get more DPC points.

ESL One Katowice 2019 Europe Qualifier (vs Gambit Esports)

These Qualifiers will be remembered by Team Spirit as one of the most exhausting matches and saddest defeats. The guys stepped into battle in the Grand Finals against Gambit Esports and fought during all five long games, but were defeated in the end:
