Summer Split Playoffs Quarterfinals
Echo Fox vs Team SoloMid
This best of five series went the distance, and it was an intense series overall. Team SoloMid won the first game out of the gate but ended up losing the next two. From there, TSM had their backs against the wall and knew that they had to go into each game with a winning mentality. One more mistake and they could have been knocked out in the quarterfinals.
