Playday 6 of NAL’s Stage 2 brought with it 4 matches which were settled with no need for overtime in any of the games, possibly the most anticipated game of the stage, SSG vs TSM took place on the day and the result was something even SSG fans would have been shocked by. R6 NAL Stage 2 playday 6 results:
Oxygen Esports vs Soniqs: A box-standard match of siege.
The match, which took place on Chalet, was very ordinary but the 3 points were all important for Soniqs in the grand scheme of things. The match had a lack of highlights but one notable aspect was that every round that Oxygen Esports, the stage 1 toppers were able to win, came due to 1 player stepping up and multi fragging or clutching up. Whereas with Soniqs it was much more of a team effort with a pretty even scoreboard.
XSET vs Mirage: The upsetters become the upsettees.
After upsetting TSM last week, Mirage fell to XSET on Kafe with a 7-5 scoreline which is as close as it can get in regular time. Dream’s 1v4 and Benjimoola’s 4k late in the first half saw Mirage go to the second half with a 4-2 lead but XSET came back to grab their first 3-point win of the stage. The final 1v1 to prevent overtime and finish off the game fell on the shoulder of XSET’s Jarvis who delivered when his team needed him.
Disrupt Gaming vs Beastcoast: BC definitively out of top 4:
This match followed a similar pattern to that of Oxygen vs Soniqs wherein the winning team had an even performance but the losing team required individual heroics to get even a couple of rounds on the board. Chalet was the site of this thrashing of BC which has finished off all chances of them making it to the top 4.
SSG vs TSM: Clash of the titans.
The match everyone was waiting for, SSG vs TSM FTX, TSM looking to get over their humiliating loos to Mirage and SSG looking to continue their dominance. The match, wasn’t quite all that, it was a thrashing of TSM, something that is unheard of. TSM didn’t look themselves in this game and SSG capitalised on this to seal their spot at the major in August and in what fashion! Hotancold was the stand out performer, but we’re pretty used to that by now.
MVP of the day: SSG Hotancold.
Matthew “Hotancold” Stevens has turned out to be an incredible signing for SSG, he is currently topping 4 of 6 NAL stat charts, having the highest Rating, K-D, Entry, and KOST. This is the second week in a row that he has grabbed the MVP of the Day.
R6 NAL Stage 2: As it stands.
As mentioned earlier, SSG have sealed a top 4 spot and Beastcoast, unfortunately, have sealed a bottom 4 spot, TSM still has a game in hand over Mirage, SSG and BC and can still make a comeback, the race for the top spot is far from over, the same can be said for the race for the top 4. Here are the standings:
