Cloud9 came from behind to edge Ninjas in Pyjamas 2-1 in the Group C elimination match Wednesday in cs_summit 7.

MIBR edged FaZe Clan 2-1 in the Group B elimination match, while Dignitas swept Complexity Gaming 2-0 in the Group A elimination match.

The 12-team, $200,000 online Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event features three groups competing in double-elimination brackets. The top two teams in each group will advance to the single-elimination playoffs. The three third-place teams, along with the top fourth-place team, will battle for the last two playoff berths, while the remaining fourth-place teams will be eliminated.

All matches, including the Sunday final, are best-of-three. The championship team will take home $90,000, the runner-up will get $40,000, and the semifinal losers will receive $12,500. Each group winner will get $10,000, and each group runner-up will pocket $5,000.

On Wednesday, Ninjas in Pyjamas opened with a 16-5 win on Dust II, but Cloud9 charged to a 9-1 lead on Overpass and leveled the match with a 16-11 victory. On the decisive third map, Train, Cloud9 won the first five rounds and held on for 16-12 triumph.

The United Kingdom's Alex "ALEX" McMeekin led Cloud9 with 58 kills and a plus-5 kill-death differential. Fredrik "REZ" Sterner led Ninjas in Pyjamas' all-Swedish lineup with 64 kills and a plus-10 K-D differential.

MIBR overcame a 12-6 deficit to beat FaZe 19-15 in overtime on Dust II. FaZe leveled the match with a 22-20 double-overtime victory on Inferno, before MIBR won Mirage 16-9.
