Martin aoeSTYKOa Styk along with the rest of mouz (9-5, 26 points) had a busy Week 3 while playing four series across the three days of competition. Things got started on Tuesday against the mixed European giants of FaZe Clan (6-6, 20 points). mouz had a solid showing on their T-side, which made up for most of their rounds won in the 2-0 series sweep. mouz continued their run on Wednesday, running into G2 Esports (4-10, 13 points), who is playing with Oscar aoemixwella Canellas in the lineup on a trial basis, and the Swedes of Ninjas in Pyjamas (7-3, 20 points) to pick up two draws that kept them at the top of the standings. The German organization then wrapped up the Week 3 action with another draw to Heroic in a close Cobblestone duel.
Week 3 also featured two Danish derbies as Heroic (6-6, 17 points) and North (4-8, 12 points) kicked off the Danesa action on Tuesday while Astralis (8-4, 23 points) and North picked their fight on Thursday. Ruben aoeRUBINOa Villarroel and Heroic stunned North in a blistering 2-0 series that put North on a downward spiral. Unable to recover from the loss to Heroic, North moved on to face Astralis the next day and were again bodied in a 2-0 sweep.
FaZe Clan started their Week 3 in a rather rough way as they were swept by mouz to open the week. However, the ELEAGUE Major: Boston runner ups turned things around on Wednesday and took down Heroic to pick up their first two wins of the week and put themselves in fifth place. Meanwhile, NiP finished the week sitting in the fourth spot after their two draws of the week came against mouz and G2.
