fnatic secure ESWC spot

After quite a hectic day filled with default wins and DDOS attacks in the ESWC 2013 European Qualifiers, fnatic have managed to come out on top, defeating their compatriots highgrade with 2-0.

With five teams already confirming their spot in Paris, European Qualifiers were set to determine another participant for the upcoming Electronic Sports World Cup.

Following the recent roster changes in the Danish scene, with Jacob "Pimp" Winneche sealing a move to Copenhagen Wolves, Team AWESOME were unable to register their fifth player for the event, which resulted in their default loss against highgrade.

On the other side of the bracket, fnatic had some hiccups in their matches, losing a map on the way against both ENCE and Clan-Mystik, while the official ESEA stream against the Finns was ended abruptly following a series of DDOS attacks.

schneider was one of the key players for fnatic

The Grand Final match between fnatic and highgrade kicked off on de_cache, the same map that these two teams played at the RaidCall EMS One Fall Cup #1, but the outcome turned out to be the same with fnatic securing a 16-6 win. Next stop was de_inferno_se, where Andreas "schneider" Lindberg and Jesper "jw" Wecksell locked down all the exits for their opponents, finishing the match off with 16-8.

22nd September 2013

Next stop on the road to Paris will be taking place tommorow, with US qualifiers coming to an end, where we will find out which team will be joining compLexity on their flight to the event.

Not maybe, that is why. Did you not bother reading? Team AWESOME were unable to register their fifth player for the event, which resulted in their default loss against highgrade.

2013-09-22 11:10
Russia don't need slot since best russian players are playing in navi and AD
2013-09-22 11:30
ok then kazahstan spot;)
2013-09-22 12:18

I think AD has a right to enter Ukranian qualification since they have 3 Ukranian players. But I can't understand why admins never learn that this team has Kazakhstan flag and is from Kazakhstan.
2013-09-22 13:04
Fnatics organisation is from Australia but have swedish players and they play with swedish flag, not the flag of Australia. So if AD has 3 ukrainian players they should have theirs flag?
2013-09-22 18:25
Europe midi 
Another retard, having the same only argument. AD players have already said that they play under Kazakhstan flag and why.
2013-09-22 18:33
It's not like in fotball tho since the teams arent rooted in certian cities but rather in cyberspace with electronic clubs. The nationality of the majority of players in the team have always decided how to label them and imo thats the correct way to do it aswell.

2013-09-22 12:09
I'm wondering if Na`Vi and AD are allowed to take part in Ukrainian qualifier since they both have two foreign players in their rosters.

Wait, no Polish team? Only one Ukranian? This is madness!@£@$£%±!
2013-09-22 12:49
ESC Gaming couldn't compete in the tournament because of roster changes after sign-up was closed.
2013-09-22 20:10
I mean no Polish qualifier? Only one EU qualifier? We shouldn't have to choose between fnatic and ESC.
