The Boston Major: Digital Chaos claim first place in group A

  • 77
  • Dec 04, 2016




A huge upset in group A delivered by WG Unity denied Wings first place and paved a clear path  to the top for Digital Chaos.



Yesterday, Group A and group B kicked off the GSL group stage and decided their leaders after some of the most spectacular matches of the season so far. Seeded in the same group, The International 6 champions and the runners up,Wings Gaming and Digital Chaos managed to avoid each other after Warriors Gaming Unity opened the day with an incredible upset. Their 2-1 victory over Wings changed the expected course of the group and created a clear path for Digital Chaos to claim the first place in group A.



No clear stomps happened during the first day in group A, and although there are a few clear 2-0 victories the score is misleading as all the teams fought hard and already revealed some of their new strategies. From support/roaming Magnus played by Rasmus 'MiSeRy' Filipsen to Xie 'Super' Junhao’s mid Sniper, we also got to see old signature heroes, somehow ignored or forgotten in the past couple of months, like Aliwi 'w33' Omar’s Windranger.



Undoubtedly, a must watch game from the group A is  Warrior Gaming Unity vs Wings Gaming, game three of the series but if you do have time for more than just a game than the entire series is worth watching.



The finals standings for group A are as follows:



1st: Digital Chaos

2nd: Wings Gaming

3rd:  Warriors Gaming Unity

4th: LGD Forever Young

The first place finish for Digital Chaos means that they will be randomly seeded in the main event against the fourth place finishers from another group. The Boston Major main event is set to kick off on the 7th of December at the Wang Theater from Boston, Massachusetts in a single elimination bracket format.



Until then, the group stage will resume today, December 4th, at 10:00 EST/ 16:00 CET with group C and D.
