Europe’s Last Chance
The Quarterfinals’ match between Europe’s second-best seed Fnatic and Chinese powerhouse Top Esports, though a Western ratings success, proved to be a tragedy for the former, who lost their opportunity to reach the finals with a 3-2 defeat on Saturday. Over 2.4 million people tuned in via Twitch and Youtube at some point or another, turning this event into one of the most successful esports broadcasts of all time, nonetheless, the rating numbers didn’t include Chinese viewership data, so, it’d be fair to assume that the total figure was twice or thrice as big as reported.
Fnatic’s defeat has turned G2 into the only “Western“ team left in the competition, however, their winning chances look relatively tiny according to the esports pundits, who have them listed at +191 betting price; Korean DAMWON Gaming is expected to win the duel and advance to the Final event, scheduled for October 31st.
