Previously, paiN Gaming and Panda Gaming were also eliminated from the tournament. The first participants in the final stage were Fnatic and Renegades. On April 2, there will be meetings for reaching the playoffs, where Natus Vincere will play with NRG Esports, Team Spirit with Team Vitality, and FaZe Clan with ENCE eSports, and also another elimination match will take place between BIG and TyLoo.

After the elimination from the competition, Fer played a prank on the CS: GO community. A few hours ago he posted a tweet saying that the StarSeries is his last tournament with the Brazilian team. This came as a shock to the entire community. However a couple of hours he completed his statement saying that this is his last tournament, until the BLAST Pro Series Miami.
Not much to say.
Last tournament with the guys!

Let’s hope that things go well for the Brazilian from now on. They have lost so many competitions with the most terrible being the BLAST Pro Series Sao Paulo. The side lost all of its matches. They are in dire need of good results, or we see this prank a horrible truth for the MIBR.
