The Brazilians continue to surprise at this Six Invitational: after knocking Ninjas in Pajamas and Spacestation out of the competition, reduct and its MIBR mates sent their Liquid counterparts back home and continued their phenomenal Lower Bracket comeback.
MIBR INTEGRATES THE FINAL SQUARE
This Friday, we entered the final stretch of the Six Invitational. After ten days of clashes, the six teams still in contention in the world championship entered the main stage of this 2022 edition of the Supreme Major, taking another step towards final victory, glory and the emblematic trophy. of the Invitational.
Right after the opening ceremony of the final stage of the event, Team Liquid and MIBR took the stage to play the first quarter of the Loser's Bracket.

They don't
It was therefore launched at high speed that the MIBR crossed swords with Liquid on this first day of the Main Event. The former came in with flying drums on Bank, leaving no room for maneuver to their adversaries and winning 7-2. Oregon, on the other hand, was more contested; the Cavaliers, aware of having their backs against the wall, recovered and came to very little to come back to score, even benefiting from a match point. However, they did not manage to transform it and the Liquid let their enemies hang the overtime, then the second point of the meeting.

The second match of the day saw the North Americans of Soniqs Esports face off against the Brazilians of FaZe Clan. On the one hand, Soniqs comes from the Winner Bracket and has had the badges of Elevate and DAMWON, the two APAC sensations of the event, on his list since the start of the Playoffs. If they show themselves in their best light at this Invitational after exponential performances throughout the season, supr and company did not have the weapons to overcome the Russians of Empire and bowed to the gates of the WB final.

This meeting was as expected as it was unpredictable between a FaZe team whose stature and track record speak for themselves, and a Soniqs collective in the midst of a frantic race at this Invitational. However, the clash was much more one-sided than expected and the Brazilians got the better of their opponents after a quick match. Indeed, the Soniqs were simply off the mark and never managed to enter their subject permanently, while the red and black were in total control. FaZe Clan has hereby sent Yeti and company across the Atlantic and qualified for the LB semi-finals, where they will meet their compatriots from MIBR.
A new day of clashes has therefore ended in Stockholm and this brings us a little closer to the outcome of the competition. Team SoloMid and Team Empire will open the ball this Saturday with the Winner Bracket final; this poster, which involves a qualification for the grand final of the Six Invitational, promises to be grandiose. Following this, MIBR and FaZe will face off in the last all-Brazilian clash of this Invitational, to see which of the two will advance to the Lower Bracket and meet the winner of the first match of the day.
