The second day of ESL One Birmingham Major produced even more eliminations, as three more teams bid farewell to the event - Team Spirit, Team Liquid, and LFY - making it a total of six teams to drop from the group stage.
The day started with the group 'A' Elimination/Decider match Between Fnatic and Team Spirit, Both teams showed a fighting spirit that thrived to survive the elimination no matter what - playing to the very end without dropping the hope till the very last moment. Yet Abed "Abed" Yasop gave them the pain they didn't wish to taste with his outstanding performance as the Queen of Pain and gifted his
Teammate Jacky "EternalEnvy" Mao the space needed for his Spectre to recover and close the series 2:1 for them.

The real pain wasn't caused by that QoP at all, it all happened in Group 'B' Battle of the survivors. Neither the casters nor the viewers were able to sit on their chairs from the thrills of the series. Pain Gaming defeated Liquid yesterday 1:0. That proved to be just the start, as the Brazilian team seemed to be dialed in on the European opponents and they continued where they left things up showing their fighting spirit by striking Liquid down yet again. After an impressive invoker game for Amer "Miracle" Barqawi that gave Liquid the first game advantage, paiN Gaming tied the series up and came back in game 3 ready to face the team who Paul "Redeye" Chaloner referred to as "The Kings". The TI7 Champions took a heavy jab on the face in an amazing Rosh fight by the whole combo of Clockwerk, Underlord and Disruptor. With that, the crowd's favorite team completely got destroyed at the Roshan Pit and wiped out. Another team wipe after was all that Liquid could handle and tapped out, giving the victory to paiN Gaming.

VP proved again that they are a powerful squad with the same way they've been generally in this season, forcing their way through any enemy they face as they dismantled team OG in a 25-minute match, brutally crushing them with a 30-3 score. That alone didn't satisfy the Russian bears at all as they ran into Optic Gaming in the 2nd match which ended by forcing their claws to breach into Optics green walls, breaking it to pieces with a 33-7 score in a 28-minute match. With the two victories, the undefeated team earned a spot in the semifinals.
The action resumes starting tomorrow 25th May with the playoffs that will take place through the 27th of May.
