Fnatic make a great escape, which Immortals get the push.

The League of Legends World Championship group stages resumed yesterday, a day which was all about Group B and who would survive in that group, and while Fnatic showed how exciting the world of esports can be by reversing their poor start to qualify, this meant hard luck for other teams.

Fnatic's day actually started with a loss to Longzhu gaming, the Korean giants who proved their dominance already in the first half of group stages, but that didn't stop the EU team, as they bounced back to win against Gigabyte Marines and Immortals. Tiebreakers were next, and they faced the same two teams later in the day, repeating their wins to seal a 4-4 record and advance out of the group.

While great news for Fnatic, this meant hard news for others. Longzhu Gaming advanced at the top of the group with six wins and no losses, and although Gigabyte Marines won their first game against Immortals, both of them tumbled out without any more wins on the day.

As you can see from the picture below, there was a lot of emotion from the Fnatic team as they qualified, but is it one of the best comebacks you've seen?
