BT Excel pull off miracle run to reach EU Masters quarter finals

UK League of Legends organisation Excel Esports completed a magnificent turnaround in the European (EU) Masters this evening.


At the start of the day their academy side BT Excel were sitting bottom of Group A in the EU Masters group stages, with three losses and no wins.


By the end of this evening, they had won four games in a row to secure a playoffs spot in what some were describing as a miracle run.


They beat GamersOrigin, YDN Gamers and Team GamerLegion to force a tie-breaker with the latter, whom they beat again emphatically, led by an incredible performance by Special in the mid-lane as Zoe. He picked up 10 kills, 9 assists and 0 deaths.


This means BT Excel finished second in the group behind GamersOrigin and progress from the EU Masters group stages.


They now progress to the knockout stages and will be playing in the quarter finals next, with their opponents still to be decided.


BT Excel answered their critics well. After their first few defeats in the EU Masters, some were saying their mental strength had wavered following their defeat to Fnatic Rising in the UKLC finals. But they managed to perform when it counted.


As the other UK team in the EU Masters, Fnatic Rising are still to complete their remaining games. They are currently second in Group D, with 2 wins and 1 loss, level with Mousesports (check out our interview with them here).


Given the UK’s somewhat disappointing League of Legends performances in Europe in the past, let’s take a moment to savour this and enjoy it.
