The RLCS 2021-22 Spring Major Day 3 injected fans with a massive dose of adrenaline a day before the Copper Box Arena in London opens up to fans.
While the day started with back-to-back short series where teams swept their opponents to win their respective series, the pace picked up in the second half. What seemed to be a continuation of yesterday’s sweep-mania took a drastic turn for the better.
RLCS 2021-22 Spring Major Day 3
The day started out with two back-to-back series that ended in sweeping victories. And fans were discouraged that the sweep-mania from Day 2 continued to run its course in Day 3 of the RLCS 2021-22 Spring Major.
Moist Esports, the #2 European team, turned up with one clear objective in their mind, to put an end to OCE’s Pioneers’ London journey. They did what Team BDS failed to do and dominated their series with a 3-0 victory over the young but talented team from Oceania.

Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown, G2 Esports Eliminated
G2 Esports and Team Liquid stepped up on the main stage after the nail-biting series between FURIA and FaZe Clan.
The reigning Winter Major champions and veteran North American roster of G2 Esports started out strong against a mechanically talented but rookie European roster of Team Liquid. And for a short while, it looked like sweeps were back on the menu as G2 Esports had won 2 games in the best of 5 series.
But the young and talented Team Liquid didn’t give up and switched up their playstyle. They brought a new, fiercer spirit to the pitch and took G2 Esports by storm.
The reigning North American kings couldn’t regain their footing once Team Liquid knocked them down. For the second time in the Spring Major, G2 Esports got reverse-swept by a European team.
Team Liquid did the impossible and caused a major upset. They took down the North American behemoth and earned the opportunity to play in front of a live audience tomorrow.
Day 3 of the RLCS 2021-22 Spring Major saw two North American teams exit the tournament alongside an Oceanic and South American team. The weekend at Copper Box Arena in London is gearing up to be a magnificent event, and we’re buckled in for the ride.
