The Western Europe DPC tiebreakers are complete
The Western DPC tiebreakers determine the number of DPC points each team will receive at the end of the season. Third place gets 120, fourth gets 60, and fifth gets 30. The top two positions in the region were decided, with Team Liquid taking first place with a 6-1 record and Team Tickles taking second place with a 5-2 record.
Tiebreaker history was dominated by Team Tundra, who didn’t lose a single game in the tiebreakers. In their unbeaten streak, they achieved a record-breaking win over Nigma Galaxy with a score by 6-51 in favor of Tundra. The game was statistically significant for Nigma Galaxy in the worst possible way. Galaxy Racer’s carry player Igor “iLTW” Filatov recorded 10 deaths after 20 minutes. Until then he had never had more than seven. He had never had more than 13 fatalities in a professional game, and against Tundra he had 16. Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu had a 14/0/35 score, the highest KDA on a clockwork of all time.
Team Secret and NGX remain at the bottom of the Western Europe DPC tiebreakers. Analysts expect Team Secret will have one of the strongest rosters in the region with Syed Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan and Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang from the off-season. Secret took just one game from Nigma Galaxy, the team that finished last in the tiebreak. Team Secret tried to use their patented Jakiro Offlane strategy against OG to no avail.
With the tiebreaks now complete, the top 6 in the Western Europe DPC are as follows: Team Liquid, Team Tickles, Team Tundra, OG, Team Secret, Nigma Galaxy.
Alliance and Coolguys are relegated to the second division next season.
