Following them is Vici Gaming at the third spot, who was handed a big upset by Invictus Gaming but were able to bounce back against EHOME to register their third series victory. PSG.LGD and Elephant are both struggling with two wins in four series. As for EHOME, the departure of Sccc earlier last months seems to have taken a toll on their performance as they are in the bottom half in the points table.
