Thanks for playing kids

Early this morning NaDa defeated Keen and HongUn in his GSL group to advance to the round of 16. Anyone want to guess how those games went?

In other GSL news, IM.MVP failed to advance out of his GSL group. Since winning the World Championship, the two time GSL champion has looked less than dominant. First, he had to re-qualify for Code S by taking second in Code A last season. Now, MVP has an early exit in GSL July following his early elimination in the Super Tournament. Fortunately, he is still in Code S so maybe we’ll see him get back in form.

Now onto some more eSports headlines for today:
