The final ever CS:GO Major has definitely delivered the action as we head into the Playoff stage. All matches in the Legends stage have now been played, and there are some surprise qualifiers for the final four days of action. With Into the Breach claiming their spot as the first ever UK team to qualify for a Major Playoffs, and a shootout between two teams outside of the top 10 HLTV rankings, the Playoffs will certainly bring some surprises.

Games to Watch

There are a number of interesting matchups in the playoff stage, specifically Heroic vs FaZe Clan. Heroic have breezed through the BLAST Paris Major so far, going 3-0 in the Legends stage to qualify for the Playoffs. However, FaZe Clan’s journey has been very different, coming back from an 0-2 start to a 3-2 record to qualify, taking down Natus Vincere in their final match.

Into the Breach became the first ever UK team to qualify for a CS:GO Major, and went even further by making the playoffs with a 3-2 record in the Legends stage. Taking on Vitality is a big ask for the Brits, but would be an incredible story if they can pull it off.

We are also guaranteed to see a team outside of the top 10 HLTV ranking make it to the final four as Monte (#13) take on GamerLegion (#22). This is a massive surprise, but shows just how competitive CS has become, and could give us an incredible story for the last ever CS:GO Major.
