Bad News Bears are the first team eliminated from IEM Cologne 2021 play-in stage

Bad News Bears are the first casualty of the IEM Cologne play-in stage, the first CS:GO tournament being held on LAN since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. They fell short to LDLC 2-0 (16-9 on Inferno and 16-6 on Mirage) in the first round of the lower bracket.

With this result, the North Americans were eliminated without winning a single map in Cologne, Germany. Allan “Shakezullah” Hardeman’s team played mousesports in the opening round of the tournament and lost 16-7 on Nuke. Although they were one of the underdogs trying to qualify for IEM Cologne’s main event, North American fans were certainly hoping for them to put up a fight against some of the world’s best CS:GO teams.
