The first day of Intel Extreme Masters Shanghai 2016 at ChinaJoy saw the first four matches of the Round of 16 go down. With the lion’s share of this tournament being US$16,000, as well as 1,000 WCS Circuit Points, the players were eager to show up strong and get a good start.
How the Round of 16 kicked off
Two solid 3-0 victories as well as two series with one map to the fallen kept us very entertained during the first day in Shanghai. While ShoWTimE and MaSa showed some flaws in their opening matches by dropping a map each to iAsonu and PtitDrogo, it was Neeb and Hydra who got the optimal start with 3-0 victories against TooDming and Enderr.
The results so far:
ShoWTimE 3-1 iAsonuPtitDrogo 1-3 MaSaNeeb 3-0 TooDmingHydra 3-0 Enderr
