LDLC qualify for ESWC France
LDLC.com have qualified for ESWC France after beating Epsilon 2-0 in the final of the first online qualifier hosted by vakarm.net (16-5 on de_cache, 16-9 on de_inferno).
The first of the the two French pre-qualifiers hosted by Vakarm.net has finally come to an end, and, as expected, the two biggest teams in contention, LDLC.com and Epsilon, reached the final.
After sweating to beat GGL in the semi-finals, this time around Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt's side gave a much better account of themselves against a stronger opponent, who were playing with Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli as a stand-in for Joey "fxy0" Schlosser.

LDLC were in the driving seat for most of this best-of-three series and settle this affair on just two maps after picking up 16-5 and 16-9 victories on de_cache and de_inferno, respectively, with Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey and Richard "shox" Papillon topping the scoreboard.
