The final slot of 16 teams that will be angling for the eight Challenger positions at DreamHack Open Stockholm was decided last night in the second leg of the North American pre-qualifier for DreamHack Cluj.
With Team Liquid advancing through the quarter-finals over the relatively unknown h00liGaNz team with ease, the semi-final showdown pitted Liquid against Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen's compLexity in a best-of-three format.
