A thrilling battle between the BR6’s current leaders Black Dragons and overall-best w7m esports will open week three. Black Dragons are hoping to overcome a previously powerful w7m in order to go closer to this split’s Copa Elite Six.
The Chaos Awaits
Next, Team Liquid and FURIA Esports, who are presently in fifth and sixth place with six points each, will compete to squeak into the top four.
The 2020 lineup of Team oNe, which is now at MIBR, will compete. They will meet Lorenzo “Lagonis” Volpi, their former IGL, who will be competing for Team Liquid on the other side of the trench, just one day later.
TropiCaos and 00 Nation will face off at the bottom of the standings in a game that is solely about the opportunity to finally rediscover form rather than about lowering risk any longer. Both teams’ attention will be totally on the top four slots in Brazil because there will be no relegation, especially 00 Nation’s after their triumph over Ninjas in Pyjamas.
The iconic matchup between Ninjas in Pyjamas and FaZe Clan, though, is without a doubt the game of the weekend.
The Rivalry So Far
FaZe Clan and Ninjas in Pyjamas have a protracted rivalry. Since both teams have been in Brazil for more than four years, the first game between them took place in July 2018. With 17 victories and three draws after a variety of matches at national and international competitions, FaZe have a marginally better record.
The superiority of FaZe has became increasingly noticeable over the past year. Since September 2021, they have won five of the eight games played, including the Sweden Major Grand Final.
Ninjas in Pyjamas hold a little advantage against FaZe Clan going into their fifth matchup because they have won one more map than them.
Although Brazil prevailed in 2021, things were completely different in 2022, and teams from the region made a valiant effort. Only four teams from the Brasileirao have been qualified to receive SI Points at each stage of this season due to changes to the Copa Elite Six system.
Four Brazilian teams are currently ranked in the top 16 in the global standings. Team Liquid, who is now in 16th place with 455 points, and FaZe Clan, who is currently in 13th place with 525 points, will both inevitably drop off the list if they do not make it into the Copa Elite Six for this stage.
Ninjas in Pyjamas enter the third weekend of play in ninth place with five points, while FaZe Clan are in second place with eight points. Despite the team’s incredible recovery in the previous stage, another loss for the ninjas could spell the end for them.
