After a thunderous Day 1, the RLCS 2021-22 Spring Major decided to slow things down on Day 2. However, exciting games and major upsets continued to keep fans on the edge of their seats.
Following the trend from Day 1 in London, fan-favorite top-tier teams continued dropping like flies. But all wasn’t doom and gloom, as new faces won the hearts of thousands of fans with their precious smiles.

Viewers and fans had to bring out their broomsticks to join the sweep-mania as all series were short-lived and ended in sweeps. However, there wasn’t any lack of excitement and drama with OCE eliminating the #1 European team from the Spring Major.
Team BDS Eliminated From RLCS 2021-22 London Spring Major
Team BDS couldn’t shake off the lackluster performance and poor form from Day 1. The European powerhouse turned into laughing stocks after their utterly disappointing performance against OCE’s Pioneers.
The team majority of fans and experts predicted would make it to the finals was sent packing home by the young and talented players of Pioneers. Team BDS tried to save face and make the series competitive, but they failed miserably.
Fans can only hope that Team BDS will regain its form by August in time for the RLCS 2021-22 World Championship. And while Europe’s best team faced humiliation, Pioneers carried on the flames and hopes for Oceania.
Moist Esports, Europe’s next best team, awaits Pioneers on Day 3. The series is shaping up to be an exciting one, with two mechanically talented and highly motivated teams fighting against each other for their tournament life!
Gaimin Gladiators Make A Great First Impression
APAC South’s first appearance on the international stage made a great impression and won the hearts of fans worldwide. LCT, Maxeew, and Abscrazy of Gaimin Gladiators competed against FURIA with a smile on their faces.
And while the team was eliminated from the Spring Major following their loss against FURIA, it isn’t the last time we’ll see these charming faces on the main stage. The rookie team has gained invaluable experience and will be back stronger the next time we see them.
Optic Gaming Shatter Endpoint CeX’s Dreams
Flipping the script from Day 1 and exactly opposite of what Team BDS did, Optic Gaming came back with a vengeance and dominated Day 2.
Endpoint CeX were the fan favorites going into the series, and while they tried their best in three nail-biting and dramatic games, Optic Gaming’s green wall stood tall and strong.
Sadly, we won’t get the crowd chanting “Metsanauris” in the Copper Box Arena this time. Optic Gaming has made sure of that. Endpoint CeX joined the growing list of European RLCS teams exciting the Spring Major early.
Tbates Translates Ft. Moist Rise
One of the most entertaining segments from the last Major made a triumphant return! Tbates Translates continues to bring a wide grin to viewers’ faces as Tbates translated the words spoken by Moist Esports’ Rise.
Regardless of the next player featured in Tbates Translates, it will continue to be great, unique content produced by the talent at RLCS 2021-22 Spring Major.
And that’s a wrap for RLCS 2021-22 Spring Major Day 2! Day 3 promises to be exciting and more competitive, with some great matchups waiting to happen. And we’ll be there to summarize it all at the end of the day.
