ENCE have shocked FaZe Clan with a huge victory on the opening day of the Legends Stage at PGL Antwerp.

They were then shocked themselves later in the day as they simply couldn’t keep pace with the Copenhagen Flames.

Just four teams are left undefeated after the opening round of pool matches in the Legends Stage, the Flames being one of them.

NaVi are in there too but they very nearly lost their undefeated record against G2.

They survived a triple overtime situation against their fellow Europeans. They played out a frankly ridiculous 36 rounds of action on Mirage before NaVi came away with the win.

FaZe bounced back incredibly well from their 16-8 loss to ENCE with a resounding victory against Bad News Eagles.

They took Ancient 16-4 with the team making light work of the Eagles.

Spirit and Ninjas in Pyjamas are the other two teams to stay undefeated. The latter has impressive wins against Cloud9 and Team Vitality under their belt.

The top eight teams after five matches will progress into the final bracket of the Major.

They will then contest in best of three-style matchups up until a winner is crowned next Sunday (May 22).

FaZe were the pre-tournament favourites but will have to be basically perfect from this point onwards to secure themselves the $500,000 prize purse.
