iBUYPOWER round up MLG team list

December 22nd, 2014 09:17

iBUYPOWER have become the eighth and final participant at MLG after defeating Torqued 2-0 (16-8 de_cache, 16-2 de_cobblestone) in the qualifier.

Sam "DaZeD" Marine's team had to leave the first qualifier disappointed, as they were taken out by mouseSpaz, who clinched the second North American spot after Cloud9, who were invited.

With seven spots already filled by the time last night's North American qualifier reached its later stages, it was do or die for iBUYPOWER, who were using Spencer "Hiko" Martin as a stand-in.

DaZeD's iBUYPOWER will be present at MLG's inaugural CS:GO event

iBP faced their toughest opponent in the second round, as they took down Denial 2-0. Since then they cruised past LunatiK, while Torqued took down Mythic to get to the final.

The grand final wound up being a very one-sided affair with Mohamad "mOE" Assad's side only managing ten rounds across the best-of-three as iBUYPOWER reigned supreme.

MLG X Games Aspen NA qualifier #2

1. United States iBUYPOWER - qualified for MLG X Games Aspen

No VP no party :( also no voxx lel
2014-12-22 09:21
also no navi and no hr. all the teams refused to play. slavs are not stupid so they expect thi to be fail and i bet it ll be
2014-12-22 10:37
No, navi got beaten 2-1 by esc in the early rounds of the qualifier, and hr probably knew they wouldn't qualify at all so they probably left it out
2014-12-22 16:52
2014-12-22 16:56
How about you use your 3rd world brain and notice how navi got crushed by esc in qualifier one? Obviously they realised they had little chance in qual 2 with the way they were playing, and decided not to waste their time playing in a qual which ldlc would undoubtably have taken
2014-12-22 17:01
which means for a 8 teams tournament there is no place for top4 team. For top 4 world there is place only for two top4 teams. Totally retarded system. Just because of that this s not a proper lan and it could be seen only as a show tournament with cheats allowed. Fail. Waste of money.
2014-12-22 17:13
Theres only space for 5 EU teams if they lost in qualifier one, the chance of them qualifying is a lot lower than you think
2014-12-23 01:49
Pretty sure only 4 eu teams could qualify. Otherwise, how the fuck is Kabum there ?
2015-12-28 06:44
Mistyped, mb.
2015-01-03 15:43
"slavs are not stupid" stopped reading there
2014-12-23 11:48
Nice line up but would have liked to see virtus pro aswell
2014-12-22 09:21
mouseSpaz to win it all
2014-12-22 09:23
Never going to happen. Their scrimmy style won't work against top EU teams.
2014-12-22 09:34
+10000 people r overhyping them
2014-12-22 09:38
they might win a round if they get lucky
2014-12-22 11:54
When they were netcode guides they took a lot of rounds off EU teams at ESEA lan. They sent overgaming packing and gave Navi a good run for their money.
2014-12-22 12:09
And got demolished by VP right?
2014-12-22 12:17
Yeah, and we see other top teams 16-1 each other all the time. They have much more experience since then and this will give them more.
2014-12-22 14:46
Should note that, the netcodeguides team at esea lan didn't have Tarik or PTR. PTR doesn't mean much but Tarik is their best player by miles.
2014-12-22 16:05
overgaming isnt the top EUs
2014-12-22 13:05
Navi was at the time and the old netcode awper jdm64 dropped a 30 bomb against them.
2014-12-22 14:45
Navi had a stand-in
2014-12-22 15:06
you wont win this fight NA, not today not next year either EU is,has and will forever be Nr.1
2014-12-22 15:43
Oh I don't doubt that. I just think mousespaz will surprise. EU definitely has the top teams.
2014-12-22 20:09
sure they can surprise like IBP at faceit and cloud 9 at cologne. but its not like they would get to a quarter final against ldlc ,Nip, VP or fnatic and win exactly
2014-12-22 20:23
Nobody said that.

Dignitas better than NiP?
2014-12-22 09:56
just as good, fnatic will win against dignitas in semifinal and ldlc will win against nip.
2014-12-22 10:05
Just as good having not even played at lan yet? HLTV logic at its finest.

Grtz to all of the teams that qualified. MLG aspen should kick off the year quite nicely. Gl hf all.
2014-12-22 09:57
cheating allowed, random maps, shit casters, no gotv/stream for most matches, admins with no idea about cs, half of top teams refused to participate. how could it be great?
2014-12-22 10:36
Your post is bullshit. You have no idea how the LAN is going to work.
2014-12-22 16:05
How mlg can have an idea if they only host console tournaments? I have better idea than mlg for sure.
2014-12-22 16:24
No one fucking refused to play you retard. There were four spots for eu teams, and 2 were already taken. If you use your brain, you can clearly see there was only 2 spots left, both which were taken by 2 of the best fucking teams (dig, ldlc). Keep crying about ur fav team not qualifying
2014-12-22 16:57
so what is "FF" then? FYI FF is forfeit which is just refuse to play and technical win for enemy
2014-12-22 17:01
You realize that the teams who forfeited were playing in other tournaments at the time and chose to not forfeit those, right? VP was at a lan (which they won) of course they're going to keep playing the lan.
2014-12-22 19:24
what navi and hr were playing? also vp decided to play german lan instead of mlg. it s a strong message.

2014-12-22 10:08
Both IBP and C9 are out of form and mouseSpaz is a joke. NA is hosting a tournament for the Euros to come and take the prize money.
2014-12-22 10:15
Go NiP :D
2014-12-22 10:17
1. LDLC 2. Fnatic 3. NiP 4. Dignitas 5. Kabum 6. Cloud9 7. Mousespaz 8. IBP
2014-12-22 10:23
2015-12-28 06:00
All top slav teams refused to participate in qualifier. No VP, No Navi, No HR. Why? This tournament must be total shit if ALL top teams from East refused. I can bet all my skins it will be fail as fuck :D
2014-12-22 10:34
VP and NaVi failed to qualify...... and HR is trash
2014-12-22 15:19
how the fuck they failed if they did not even tried? both VP and Navi gave forefeits in early stage. "trash" HR owned "the best" fnatic at DHW. Same for navi and vp btw. VP is tier 1 team. Navi is top4 and HR is top8. All teams are full of 1.6 champions and new talented as fuck blood. These 3 teams are half of 1.6 scene and quarter of csgo scene.
2014-12-22 15:50
HR and VP didn't try to qualify, but Na'Vi got beaten by ESC
2014-12-22 16:24
In quali 1 but in quali 2 they forefeited their match.
2014-12-22 16:25
VP was at a LAN during qualifier 2
2014-12-22 16:37
how did they not try then?
2014-12-22 17:15
FFs in quali 2 and no preps for quali 1?
2014-12-22 17:18
I think it was because VP had the A-split Acer invitational tourny last month and they couldnt participate in the qualifiers. Navi and HR not too sure about them
2015-01-12 00:09
I wish VP would be there instead of Kabum, then this tournament would be fucking insane. Still gonna be amazing though, especially excited to see if mouseSpaz can perform against the cream of the crop teams from EU.
2014-12-22 10:47
Brazil mth^ 
dude im not that br fanboy, but i do believe KaBuM can surprise since they have changed their lineup. zqk - really nice awp + xp steel - nice aim + xp FalleN - too much xp and good awper fer - best br player in csgo boltz - new talent with an amazing aim will be a tough task for them, butttttt D:
2014-12-22 14:35
-dignitas +vp/hr/navi would have been nice
2014-12-22 11:01
actually dignitas and mousespaz are the only ones who deserved the slots. Dignitas beat LDLC and VP to qualify. NIP and C9 were invited because they probably would not have qualified. Kabum had a free slot...no challengers. Fnatic being the top team,deserve a slot. I dont think NA needs 3 slots.
2014-12-22 11:10
+1 digi really deserved, 3 NA teams it's way too much
2014-12-22 13:26
NiP would have qualified but I doubt C9 would've and I also think it should just be 2 NA spots, they'll get humiliated anyways after the IBP roster changes...
2014-12-22 14:16
How would have NIP qualified in the presence of so many better teams,u need to note that NIP is bad online. VP,LDLC,even ESC played so well.
2014-12-22 14:59
I always think NiP is just saving strats online, otherwise I can't explain it...
2015-12-30 14:04
major +1 ! Both dig and mousespaz earned their spots fair and square.

2014-12-22 12:07
n0thing cheated and admits it. Many people cheated.
2014-12-22 15:49
I am sure n0thing brings a better aura to a team than m0E and is able to work with his team instead of yelling.
2014-12-22 20:07

2014-12-22 13:27
Wtf they invite some shitty brazil team that has no chance of winning but not Na'Vi / VP / HR / ESC / Any other decent team? Fuck this shit.
2014-12-22 13:48
Because Europe is not all :D
2014-12-22 15:00
