XSET won day four of the NA ALGS Pro League today.

The six-game set featured teams such as veteran controller team G2, Complexity, SHEEEEEEESH (with popular streamers Jack “NiceWigg” Martin and Timmy “iiTzTimmy” An at the helm), Sentinels, the Champions ALGS 100 Thieves and Spacestation Gaming title – which, after a good result today, looks more and more like the team to beat in pro North America Mountain peak.

In the first game, Spacestation, which won its first matches of the weekend, set the tone by continuing to demolish the competition. Joseph “Frexs” Sanchez, Angelo “xenial” Cadenas and Mark “Dropped” Thees made it easy in one final circle outside of the countdown. Sentinels, the other winner of the Pro League’s opening matches, came out early.

At the start of the second game, the Sentinels were again killed after leading a bubble fight that they couldn’t finish cleanly. Mexican team Estral Esports won the match, which ended near The Tree, while defending ALGS 100 champions Thieves took second.

Complexity, a team that has failed to live up to the high expectations many have for them in the Pro League so far, won Game 3 with an easy victory near the launch site. But it was SXG’s third place with 16 kills that won the most points. SXG moved up to third place, while unsigned team Sign Us Please and Spacestation remained in the top two places.

In the fourth game, Spacestation did well again. The Endgame saw 100 Thieves perched above their opponents in a final circle that ended directly on the tower outside of the countdown. 100 thieves couldn’t hang on from the heights, however, and XSET, huddled near the base of the tower, hung on for the victory.

With two games to go, Spacestation and XSET were tied for first place, but neither could afford complacency. The two collapsed in Game 5, while Esports Arena lost 12 wins. Furia, who was leading a team with a fuse on it, took second place. The penultimate game wasn’t enough to dramatically change the math, and XSET and Spacestation continued to dominate the field.

Ahead of the final game, it looked like any team in the top five could easily overtake the leaders with a dominant victory. XSET, who was just a few points ahead of the field, got into trouble early on, losing one of their players. But they got a relaunch and the game developed into a dense and chaotic end fragment. XSET survived in the final circle with good positioning and outlasted the rest of the field, marking his first victory in the ALGS.

The popular SHEEEEEESH team couldn’t repeat their strong performance from the first weekend of the Pro League, ending the day almost at the bottom of the pitch. The Sentinels, who dominated their games last week, could not offer the same consistency today. The veteran teams G2 and Complexity finished eighth and ninth.

In the overall league standings, the best teams so far have started to distance themselves from the rest of the field. Spacestation is in the lead, with Esports Arena in second and Cloud9 in third. The popular TSM, a major attraction for competitors Mountain peak audience on Twitch, are struggling in tenth place. A good day can get teams like TSM and NRG close to first place, but others Mountain peak games like G2, defending 100 champions Thieves and Team Liquid are a little further behind.

The North American Pro League season’s $ 125,000 prize pool continues next weekend, starting Saturday at 3:00 p.m. CT.
