Viperio 86 show up big in the Six Invitational Open Qualifiers, making it to the semi-finals stage of the single elimination tournament. The squad have delivered a very impressive run so far, out-placing major Tier One teams such as G2 Esports and Virtus Pro.
Viperio received a bye in Round One, and managed to dominate in their first fixture 7-0 versus E-Legion. Round three was a little closer that hoped for, but the Viperio 86 squad delivered regardless, with a 7-5 victory versus Sandals IV.
The squad then went up to face Rebels Gaming, a new esports team owned by Manchester United Goalkeeper David de Gea. Despite their star owner, Viperio were not phased, and defeated the Spanish side 7-3. Viperio 86 went on to play a rematch against Reply Totem, the french side that knocked our squad out of the European Challenger League 2021. In true 86 fashion, the Viperio squad dominated the first half of the game, leading 5-1 at half time. While Reply Totem showed some signs of a comeback, especially after an impressive 1v3 clutch, Viperio 86 closed out the game with a 7-4 victory.
Viperio will face the German roster of Wylde, an Irish organisation formerly of the UKI Nationals in the semi-finals. The winner of this best of three series will take on the victor of LFO/Team Secret for a spot in the Six Invitational Closed Qualifiers in 2022.
Viperio 86 vs. Wylde will take place at 12pm (GMT). Broadcast is still TBC.
