If they're holding "North American" qualifiers then only North American teams should be able to play. Look at the LCS for example, max 2 Koreans per team. Should be the same in cs and there should be a Brazilian qualifier as well

And should be a Oceanian, African, Asian and South-America qualifier,,, but obviously it's not possible bro. If you had just a little xp on LAN games you would know the qualifier spots are not related to the players/teams which are from that place, the spots are to those who are able to play offline in that place. Imagine you have the best team from UK and there's a qualifier in Ireland... and you can't play cauze you're British not Irish.

But it should just be called an american qualifier not a north american one
2016-08-31 20:53
The qualifier will be placed in North America bro, doesn't matter what teams will play on it. If Virtus.Pro had done just like SK/Immortals, went living in NA to play the national leagues/campionships, and then they paid/received a spot to play this qualifier... they org of the event would change the name of the qualifier just cauze VP would play on it? Ofcourse nottttt WTF this isn't complicated bro, hope you got it :D

Nice, happy that immortals get a chance do qualify for the tournament, although I think Cloud9 is the clear favorite on an online qualifier. EDIT: Typo

No s1mple now. Infact I am pretty sure that even C9 is now much better than the pimp-liquid. And dude, don't doubt on the abilities of the ninjas from one or two tournament's outcome. That's just funny xD Friberg will 16-0 1v5 knife all of them starting on 1 hp. They wont even see the banana coming.

These tier1 qualies are stupid. First EPICENTER and now ESL. I want to see top quality CS on LAN, not tier1s throwing online qualies due to too many tournaments & leagues going on. Top 15 so even that either invite less (like top4) and give more spots in qualies or just invite the fucking teams based on their schedule (not everyone is gonna participate on every event nevertheless).

North American qualifier: NRG sporting European flag.
2016-08-31 19:46
the case of NRG is really intriguing. I mean, at least Immortals is in the same continent and there is no such thing as BR qualifier so... bu NRG is EU and there is an EU qualifier
2016-08-31 19:53
NRG's org is based in the United States, all of the players are currently living in the US, and they were previously a NA team before bringing on an extra EU player. This is what most teams will use to qualify what country they're from, so they get into a North American qualifier, but HLTV and Valve both consider them an EU team. Which means they'll have to go through the EU qualifier to get into a major, but for other tournaments they're deemed NA.

inb4 dignitas beats astralis
2016-08-31 20:41
Godsent - Faze - 50/50 Gambit - Mouse - Mouse EnVy - F3 - EnVy Dig - Astralis - Astralis C9 - CLG - C9 Echo Fox - TSM - 50/50 Optic - NRG - Optic Complexity - Immortals - Immortals Ez
2016-08-31 20:45
Agreed, except I think F3 will win against Envy, TSM will easily win against EF, and NRG-Optic is 50/50 Envy hasn't been on form, TSM is looking good with Relyks, and Optic haven't been playing too hot recently.
2016-08-31 21:14
godsent vs astralis in the eu finale gonna be interesting
2016-08-31 20:45

EU will be either Astralis, Faze, or GODSENT (if they get their act together). NA will likely either be Immortals or Cloud9. Toss-up.
