OG secure playoff spot at ESL One Germany

OG secured a playoff spot at the ESL One Germany event on Saturday with a sweep against Yellow Submarine.

OG (3-1) joined Team Secret and Alliance in the playoff field by sinking Yellow Submarine (2-2) in 36 and 35 minutes.

In other Round 4 action, Ninjas in Pyjamas (2-2) and Team Nigma (2-2) moved within a win of the playoffs with sweeps that eliminated HellRaisers (1-3) and Winstrike Team (1-3), respectively.

The $400,000 Dota 2 event began with 16 teams from Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. It runs through Nov. 1, with the winner earning $150,000.

The teams are competing in a Swiss group stage with five rounds of best-of-three matches. Teams need three victories to secure a spot in the eight-team playoffs, while three losses equal elimination, and teams never play the same opponent twice.

The playoff rounds will be contested in a best-of-three, double-elimination format. The grand final is a best-of-five encounter.

Ninjas took down HellRaisers in 29 and 48 minutes, while Nigma dispatched Winstrike in 33 and 25 minutes.

Round 4 concludes Sunday with three matches: Cyber Legacy vs., Natus Vincere vs. mudgolems, and 5men vs. Team Liquid.
