[Worlds 2019] FPX becomes Group B 1st seed, Splyce 2nd seed

Well one thing is for sure, Group B has been... entertaining. What looked like FPX domination from the Group Draw, leaving three to fight for the second seed scraps, almost ended with an FPX emilination, as they fell to Splyce and then watched them qualify to the knockouts before them.

However, on the brink of their own early exit, a victory in their final game knocked out J Team and sent them to a tiebreaker with Splyce, who had beaten them earlier in the day. This match would decide the seeding for the Knockout Stage, and who get to dodge the other Groups' first seeds. 

In contrast, Splyce had an incredible early round of games in their second Round Robin. They entered the day tied with GAM Esports in last place in the group, but going 3-0 throughout their games qualified them for knockouts and a chance at the first seed.

But their day wouldn't end with a clean 4-0. FPX turns the tides at the end, securing revenge for the stressful loss earlier in the day, they defeat Splyce in the tiebreaker match, and qualify to the Knockout Stage as Group B's first seed. 

Check out the Knockout Stage Draw after the final matches of the Group Stage on Sunday, Oct. 20th.
