Astralis are in the playoffs at DreamHack Summer, after a closely fought game aganst SK Gaming. The eventual winners looked shaky and lost in the start of the game, though, as SK took the first seven rounds and made it look easy. Modii in particular caused trouble for Astralis, as he roamed around and caught them at unexpected angles.

A timeout helped Astralis get their head back in the game, however. Modii's shenanigans were shut down, and the favourite team began a long, ardous trek to take the game back, first tying at 11-11 and eventually closing it out at 16-12.

The win puts Astralis in the semifinals, where they'll place the second place finisher of group B. Whoever that will be isn't decided yet. SK Gaming are heading to the decider match in group A, where they'll face the winner of Immortals vs. Ence.
