They will be playing the major qualifiers, are playing mdl right now, are confirmed for Dreamhack Masters Jonköping due to their win in Leipzig and will be playing a german tournament called Merkur Masters in June
I think they can get a spot if they win the DH Masters Jonköping, ESL has this new points system that I'm not too familiar with yet, I believe they have to win it and none of their competitors for the 16th spot are allowed to succeed in one of the Dreamhacks/ESL events that Big doesn't attend.
They said they want to focus on mdl and qualifying for EPL again and the global qualifier for Flaspoint ends the day before the minor would start and they made this mistake before with going to the minor right after another event and being unprepared and jetlagged so they decided not to play the flaspoint qualifier
And counter: 5
nah first they moved all the mdl games around the closed EU qualifier then they most likely got an direct invite to the lan qualifier and now t hey are moving all the mdl games that were supposed to be played in beginning of march to now or 3 weeks
also BIGs manager said there will be no mdl games in the next two weeks because bootcamp and something they cant announce yet. he also said that we're going to see BIG offline sooner rather than later
you can quote me later
