Teams set for FACEIT Stage 3 Finals
Following today's finish of the European group of FACEIT League Stage 3, all eight teams are set for the finals hosted by DreamHack Open Winter from November 26-28.
One of the spots at the finals has been determined for nearly a month due to the difference in format over in Oceania. There, Animal Squad, now representing Legacy eSports, surprised both Immunity and Renegades as they came out on top of a four-way tie.
Another couple of spots were snatched three days ago in North America, where Luminosity came out on top of the group, only losing a single map throughout the league.
Liquid securing a place due to head-to-head adds to their rivalry with Cloud9
The second North American spot went Liquid's way, who were in a tie with Cloud9, but defeated their rivals in both of their matches and thus deserved the spot in Jönköping at the end of the month.
Group Europe was quite wide open until the very last moments, both NiP and Virtus.pro won the majority of their matches in the last three days, which secured them a spot alongside TSM and EnVyUs. fnatic were another team to make it thanks to a head-to-head ruling, in this case over G2.
