Looking back on the Europe West playoff, 24 sides in this region battled for qualification to the PCS5 Europe Grand Finals. Despite trailing other teams in terms of kills, Vanir finished the weekend with three chicken dinners, dramatically securing back-to-back wins in the last two matches. The full Danish roster topped the leaderboard, with Heroic and The Last Dance taking the last two spots for the region.

In Europe East, Question Mark, Tokyo Manji Gang and EXhalatioN finished at the top of the leaderboard. Academy of Death Fragger SHROWWWWWWW stood out, taking an impressive 26 kills, and EXhalatioN’s Salik was just behind him with a respectable 24.

The Pick’ Em Challenge also returns for PCS5 where fans will have the chance to earn in-game rewards by correctly predicting the outcome of each regional tournament.

The PCS5 Europe Grand Finals will take place on September 18th to 19th, 25th to 26th and October 2nd to 3rd. Matches start at 5pm BST each day.
