Ian "Corporal" Pearse believes his ORDER side still have a chance of making it out of the group at this year's Mid-Season Invitational.
In the League of Legends MSI, ORDER are 11/2 to win their next match against Evil Geniuses, who are 1/10 to triumph in Saturday's clash and you can catch the action on our Sports Live Streaming platform.
ORDER were drawn in the smallest section in the group stage of the Mid-Season Invitational along with challenging G2 Esports and Evil Geniuses sides.

They have a disappointing 0-4 record so far but are yet to be officially eliminated and ORDER support "Corporal", who has represented the team since January this year, still believes they have a chance of making the Rumble Stage.
The Oceanic side would naturally need a perfect finish to the group stage for this to happen but benefit from the fact two of the three teams in their section will progress.
"Corporal" also believes the team's issues in the MSI so far have been down to the fact they are facing better opponents than normal, not due to nerves.
Speaking about his side's performances at the Mid-Season Invitational so far, "Corporal" said: "I don't think there's nerves. I think the teams that we're facing are just straight up better than the ones that we're used to facing on a regular basis.
"And even though we have a really good chance to win, in my opinion - I think we will still be able to make it out of the group.
"The mistakes that we're showing are just kind of characteristic and how the games play out - I wouldn't attribute it to nerves."
