The first and last game will be played from the Berlin studio this weekend, with Misfits Gaming and Team BDS opening this week’s games. As the new team in the league, this will be the first time that Team BDS. Some of the BDS players have already experienced on-stage play, but a part of the young squad will also be pushed into a brand new environment.
The first day will conclude with two experienced organizations facing off, as MAD Lions and G2 Esports will close out the day from the studio. Even though the organizations are used to playing live from the studio, there will be a total of four players who are yet to experience the vibe from the Berlin studio.
On the second day of the week, Team BDS will be back in the studio when it faces off against Excel. The last studio match of the week will be none other than Team Vitality against Fnatic, which currently seems like the matchup of the week to look out for.
