SK, YP final teams to MLG qualifier

SK Gaming and Team YP have won their respective semifinal games of the MLG Last Chance CIS & Europe pre-qualifiers to become the two final teams to attend the Main qualifier, defeating ENCE (2-0) and ancient (2-0) respectively.

An eleven team bracket that spanned the course of three game days saw many European teams angling to secure one of two spots at the MLG Columbus Main qualifier (from which eight teams advance to the next CS:GO Major).

With teams such as Empire, CSGL, Orgless (ex-PixelFire), and most notably E-frag.net falling by the wayside, the first semifinal to determine a slot was a match between Michael "Friis" Jørgensen and crew of SK Gaming and Aleksi "allu" Jalli's ENCE, who were playing on computers from inside of Assembly Winter 2016 (where that team has secured the playoffs of the €15,000 event).


AcilioN and his teammates picked ENCE apart

As allu suggested later, a full day of offline games was no helpmeet for the Finnish side as they were picked apart by SK Gaming, 16-2 on de_train and 16-6 on de_mirage.

In the second semifinal, Markus "pronax" Wallsten and his Swedish band of ancient faced off against the Russian-Ukrainian Team YP.

The first map of de_cbble was an extremely close series that saw Team YP inch ahead with a 16-14 win, while an obvious skill disparity appeared on ancient as Simon "twist" Eliasson put on a 37 kill showing whereas Jonatan "Devilwalk" Lundberg struggled to make an impact in the game with only seven kills on the map.


pronax & co. likely did not have fun playing on de_mirage 

With Devilwalk experiencing apparent internet issues for the second map of de_mirage, ancients had to bring in Benjamin "BENDJI" Söderena and were promptly obliterated 16-0, meaning that YP became the second team to advance to the Main qualifier.

Roger that, there should not be online qualifiers for something like this. Must be nice to go to the lan and then get shit on cause you cant use downloadable skills. And no I dont bet. This stuff just pisses me off.

I mean these are online quallifiers for the offline quallifiers... they have to filter the complete shitties out somehow, and making a lan and bringing like 500 teams where 90% of them are horrible isnt really worth it. The main quallifier for the major if offline, so everything should be fine.

It's a shame that the legendary CS:GO players who leave their legendary team to join a newer one never get into the offline qualifers. seang@ares, pronax, allu, all have lost in the qualifiers in their new teams. le cri :'((((((((
2016-02-06 00:37
For pronax' defense, it was his own will to quit fnatic to play with devilwalk/pauf/Schindler.

For F_CK sake - let Devilwalk do what he does best - coach! As a player he's worse even than HUNDEN, and Fifflaren seems to be like a really good player comparing to Devilwalk. I can't really understand, why didn't they pick Delpan - the guy practises pretty hard, at least he seems to practise enough, because when some teams pick him as a stand-in - he plays pretty good, and ofc he's much better than Devilwalk. Is there some conflict between Delpan and pronax or something? Why didn't they choose him over Devilwalk?.. If they don't like Delpan - just pick slap, I know he hasn't been any special after his team with THREAT, kHRYSTAL, Spitfire and wenton got destroyed, but he for sure is better than Devilwalk is right now. They can pick Spitfire or literally anyone, and then be better than they're now, because you can't find a player worse than Devilwalk. 0-16? To YP? R u serious? It's a shame...
2016-02-06 00:42

2016-02-06 01:55
GA looked really strong during the pre-qualis
2016-02-06 09:04
They beat wfox and torqued 2-1, wouldn't say really strong.
2016-02-06 10:37
Winterfox won vs OpTic, so they're pretty decent for a tier 3 team (no offence).
2016-02-06 11:14
I'm aware of that. I still wouldn't say really strong, but thats my opinion.
2016-02-06 11:55
I agree with you, I only meant that GA looked like a decent team, so if they continue playing like that, they def can pull an upset vs some teams.
