ESL use partner teams + their OWN ranking. Unfair for the non-partners :/
The original 16 got the same chance, and the ones who didn't make it in the groups got an additional chance to qualify.
Pretty much everyone in the top20 had a chance to qualify, unlucky that some teams played better.
How unfair is the next Dreamhack? ESL rankings but then random partner team fillers and fake "qualifiers". If you want to complain go ahead, but everyone has partners.
And the Spring Final is great, should Vitality and Astralis be in it just because they are "top 10" when they bottled 2 chances to qualify? No, so fuck off with your rankings the teams in the finals qualifies into the finals.
