After Red Reserves convincing win against Reciprocity on opening day, fans were wondering if they were going to take that momentum into day 2 of the Pro League. Gen.G were making their debut in the pro league.
In the first match, Red Reserve won 250-167 in Hardpoint. The match was fairly even throughout the game, but Red Reserve was clutch when it counted, taking the first match away from Gen.G. In the second match, Gen.G tied things up by beating RR in Search and Destroy 6-2, taking Match 2. In Match 3, Gen.G won an intense and close game of Control, going up 2-1 in the series. At this point, Red Reserve was caught in a situation they haven’t been in yet as they cruised past Reciprocity 3-0 on opening day. In Match 4, it was do or die for Red Reserve, however, Gen.G got the best of them winning the series 3-1. Gen.G has defeated Red Reserve in both the Pro League Qualifier and the Pro League. (GEN.G Win)
Midnight VS Evil Geniuses @ 4:30 PM
The second match of the day featured the hot Midnight versus the experience Evil Geniuses. After Midnight beat OpTic Gaming on opening day, fans were calling it a fluke victory, and planting the fact that Dashy was missing in OG’s line-up. Midnight wanted to prove in day 2 of the pro league that their win against OpTic wasn’t a fluke, and they did just that, beating Evil Geniuses in a 3-0 sweep. What seemed like a strong beginning of the first match turned sour for Evil Geniuses as Midnight came back and stole the first match in Hardpoint. This momentum carried through to the next game where they won 6-3 in Search and Destroy and closing out the series. (Midnight Win)
UYU VS OpTic Gaming @ 6:00 PM
GreenWall fans were hoping for a turnaround after OpTic Gaming lost opening day. They were swept by Midnight in a shocking defeat. On day 2, OpTic Gaming had the chance to scrim with each other and get familiar with FaZe ZooMaa, who was replacing OpTic Dashy for now.
In the first match, UYU came out strong, but ZooMaa has something to say about that and had two clutch kills to help seal the first match in Hardpoint for OpTic Gaming. OpTic Gaming and Zooma continued their dominance, showing the world that they are ready to start winning again and beat UYU in Search and Destroy. However, thing’s turned around for UYU. UYU fought back to take Control and the map 3-1 avoiding the sweep by OpTic.

Luminosity VS Reciprocity @ 7:30 PM
After losing the first day to Red Reserve, Reciprocity were hoping to change that around in day 2 against Luminosity. Day 2 would be the first for Luminosity Gaming of the Pro League. In the first match on Hacienda playing Hardpoint, Luminosity bounced to a convincing lead by almost triple to what Reciprocity had. However, things turned around with Zed getting some clutch kills to infiltrate key hardpoints. Rec had a nice comeback, taking away the first match from Luminosity Gaming.
Match 2 went in favor of Reciprocity who beat out Lum in SnD with a 6-3 win. What looked like an impossible scenario for Luminosity showed a brink of light on the last round of elimination on Gridlock. Luminosity used up all their specials just to beat barely beat Reciprocity, This somehow worked and turned everything around, having Luminosity bounce back and win two matches in a row to tie the series. But Rec proved to be too strong, winning the last match and beating Luminosity Gaming. (Reciprocity Win).
