Tempo Storm qualify for IEM Katowice

February 15th, 2016 09:03

Tempo Storm have won the North American online qualifier for IEM Katowice by defeating Cloud9 2-0 (16-14 on de_mirage and 19-17 on de_cache).

The tenth season of the Intel Extreme Masters will take place from March 4-6 in the Spodek Arena and most notably feature a $250,000, 12-team CS:GO tournament.

Eight teams were invited due to their top eight placings in the last Major of Cluj-Napoca whereas four have advanced via regional qualifiers for Europe, Asia, and North America (with E-frag, mousesports, and TheMongolz having done so already in their respective regions).

boltz and Tempo Storm took down all three NA titans to qualify: Liquid, CLG, Cloud9

Over 100 teams took part in the single elimination bracket for the North American IEM Katowice qualifier, with teams such as Winterfox, NRG, and SPLYCE falling by the wayside early on.

The quarter-finals switched into best-of-three games, with OpTiC taking out Enemy at this stage and perhaps most notably the Brazilians of Tempo Storm taking down Liquid 2-1 in a heavily anticipated game.

Tempo Storm would not stop there however as they took down CLG 2-0 in the semifinals and advanced into the grand final against Cloud9.

Although Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir & co. managed to finish the first halves of both series maps with commanding CT-side scorelines (11-4 on de_mirage and 10-5 on de_cache), the similar storylines seen at the GEC Game Show finals came into play as a lack of T-side execution and strategy was the North American team's downfall.

Tempo Storm for their part continued upon a growing reputation for dependable teamwork and drilled retakes and site takes to power forward and win both maps, 16-14 on de_mirage and 19-17 on de_cache, and thereby qualify for Group B of IEM Katowice.

It's sad how poor the IGLing from n0thing is compared to sgares. I really hope he improves (thing that I doubt) or that C9 org find a coach/IGL if the bad results continues. Crearly the problem is not the new guy but the old one. Edit: Extremely good performance by TS. HENGOD.

2016-02-15 09:26
I think that was the first time they had the chance to play against top NA teams, since they've been placed in lower divisons over the leagues when they got in US
2016-02-15 09:30
Nop they have already had that chance when TACO and FNX were still in the lineup, close series against CLG and C9 (2-1, 2-1).

It is a major tournament, just not a valve major.
2016-02-15 09:50

2016-02-15 10:17
we can call it major anyway, cuz its like major but without valve money
2016-02-15 10:45
So we wont call it a major. Stop contradicting
2016-02-15 14:37
seems like ur new and dont even know major times in 1.6, every big tournament with big names and prize was called major and for me its still the same

I couldn't watch it because it was so late, woke up at 15-15 but seeing this post I can't help but feel sad for C9, their T side is probably the worst T side among "top" teams atm, really heartbreaking seeing them lose advantages because of that. I hope that them and Liquid are able to figure out their own playstyle. Also for those that didn't know, CLG's coach (that is their ign) couldn't join the server as a coach due to some dumb reason. They look like the strongest NA team but this qualifier was really unfortunate for them.

I'm a bit confused. Everyone who is a member of LG is now a member of tempo storm? Call me an idiot, but I need to see a link of when these two teams "merged" if you will.
2016-02-15 10:26
they never merged, a couple of months ago, boltz and steel from LG were kicked and fnx and taco from tempo storm (Games Academy previously) replaced them, now boltz is playing for tempo and steel I don't know where the fuck he at, but he was a shit player.

Although UK doesn't really have a CS:GO scene it is a pretty poor showing from all NA teams
2016-02-15 12:04
It was mostly enjoyable seeing TS playing, but Jesus Christ, there were some moments in which they almost gave me cancer, what with not being able to score the match point when they had an enormous advantage and all. Hope they can sort their shit out when it comes to closing games, because things like that de_cache against Liquid are painful and that's basically the one thing they are lacking in.

2016-02-15 12:33
And to think that the ESL would not give the invite to these boys to play professional league, this serves for E-League rethink the teams in your league, and give a chance for the Brazilian team, hopefully the E-League does not make the same mistake of ESL to the spot for a weak Australian team and let the Brazilians out.
2016-02-15 12:37
one good qualifier = invite them to every shit tournament/League first of all they should qualifier for the major na major without any na team would be nice haha
2016-02-15 12:40
yeah, cuz TS < 12 NA TEAMS? ofc TS is better than more than a half of the teams in ESL Pro League

Good game! American teams need to learn from these brazilians. Their dedication to proper practices, coordination, spirit are all above and beyond. Coming out from nowhere just like keyd stars back in the day and now scrapping the floor with tesms like clg, clod9 is unbelivable. This is what i call areally deserved win. Good gameand american teams should be ashamed of that especially knowing that tempo storms didbt even have international experience playing majors like c9, clg and still they outplay the na "giants". Good game!

2016-02-15 14:15
Incredible storyline. It is so blatantly obvious that these guys are insanely dedicated, and the passion they express is beautiful. This has got to be the most impressive rise of any team in CS:GO-history - atleast in the way they did it. They completely out-classed C9 on their respective T-sides. Respect. Congrats!

2016-02-15 15:38
Asian qualifiers include Australia and New Zealand, lol. So relax.
2016-02-15 15:58
ESL make an apresentation on Brasil last weeks, they incoming and probabily we will get some champs here =)
2016-02-15 17:38
Rather than inviting a team like efrag, they shouldve just made a brazil qual and an NA qual, but who cares i guess, na is shit either way

not taking away anything from TS, they played pretty well, but only the TL game, like TL was ahead 13-10 on Mirage and couldnt close the game and if they would have had more than 1 round on ct site train(LMAO) they should have won that. didnt see the C9 game, but overall pretty poor by Na's top teams ayyy

Mad respect ? Rofl NA is so ez. They won't pass brackets with euro team.
2016-02-15 18:53
Hahahah, the same old talk since LG was Keyd Stars, you guys never learn, do ya? xD
2016-02-15 19:17
Not saying that TS or LG gonna win Kato but there's a fair chance that they could do well. I'm talking about their potential, and we must wait to Kato to see it. And as well as the br fellow said, its the same story with LG "They can only win bo1, if it was bo3 they wont win" "The euros gonna rape LG" -> and they beat nV, NiP, Astralis and got a win over NaVi.. Never understimate, just spec and enjoy.
2016-02-15 19:32
I don't understimate them but when you say SA scene will rise above, dude cmon let me laugh SA scene is composed of LG and that's it.
2016-02-16 01:15
So what? NA is full of big and known orgs and their teams are not up to the standard they should deliver, so until SA have some big orgs supporting we will never know what they can bring to the table.
2016-02-16 01:21
They're pretty close to LG. LG is routinely cracking top 4 now. It would be a surprise if TS didn't beat at least one or two Euro teams.
