STAGE 1 RECAP
Stage 1 Major consisted of action-packed, intense matches including upsets from the number one seeds of each region.
Nemesis Esports, champions of the 2020 EU Dominion Series, were favored to win this year’s iteration of the Dominion Series until they were caught by El Collectors in the Stage 1 Winners Final, who secured a 2-0 victory into move onto the Grand Final. Natural Mind Games proved their strength by securing the final spot in the Grand Finals against Nemesis Esports in the Lower Final with another 2-0 victory.
In the EU bracket, Natural Mind Games became the Stage 1 Major winners over a 2-1 victory against El Collectors.
Nemesis Esports and El Collectors will make a return to the Stage 2 Major, eager to take the crown.
Guidance Gaming (GG) were champions of the 2020 Dominion Series of the NA region and also favored to win this year’s 2021 Dominion Series. They flawlessly moved through the Stage 1 Major all the way to the Grand Finals undefeated, where they met Team Killing Service (TKS). GG had defeated TKS in the Winners Final 2-0 prior, but TKS ran the bracket back after securing their win against UwU Gang in the Lower Final, and ultimately getting their revenge by defeating GG in the Grand Finals with a 2-1 victory.
Guidance Gaming and Team Killing Service will once again make a return to the Stage 2 Major, hungry to secure the Winner Title.
