Americas Minor teams decided

With the closed qualifier behind us, the four teams to fight at the Americas Minor on December 3-4 are now set. The Minor, which will take place at the ELEAGUE Arena, holds two invitations to the main qualifier taking place later on in December.

The first team to make it through were the hottest item in North America and the favorites to make it through, Cloud9, after beating paiN 16-6 on Cobblestone and TSM 2-0 on Train, 16-8, and Cobblestone, 16-10 Echo Fox then made it after beating Splyce 16-10 on Mirage and scraping by Muffin Lightning in three maps, losing Cache, 6-16, and winning Dust2, 16-12, and Mirage, 16-14. 


Cloud9 are favored to make it through the Minor

TSM then squashed paiN's American Dream winning easily 2-0 on Dust2, 16-5, and Train, 16-3, to earn their invitation to the Minor. Finally, Immortals now led by Lucas "steel" Lopes took revenge on Muffin Lightning—who had won their opener on Cache, 16-8—by winning the decider in two maps, Overpass, 16-11, and Train, 16-2, to confirm their presence at the Minor.

The Minor will be held in Atlanta at the ELEAGUE Arena on December 3-4 with two spots available for the ELEAGUE Major's main qualifier, which will also take place in Atlanta on December 15-18.

The final standings of the closed qualifier:

1-2. United States Cloud9 - Americas Minor
1-2. United States Echo Fox - Americas Minor
3-4. Canada TSM - Americas Minor
3-4. Brazil Immortals - Americas Minor
5-6. United States Muffin Lightning
5-6. Brazil paiN
7-8. Other Splyce
7-8. United States Selfless

Personally I think its retarded to think or say whatever if someone is hacking or not,whatever if you speak about flusha,spyleader,bolts,cold or anyone else,I mean dont get me wrong if someone really is hacking he should be punished with temp. ban for perhaps two years,but here's what im trying to explain. If Spyleader was hacking(there is some video of him playing and then prefireing throught the b apartmants from A pit on Inferno while guy was going from mid to A aps. so far it was not seen-able to spot him) his performance wouldent be so shit overall in games,and he probably wouldent slap his teammates on lan. Flusha hacking?Well perhaps every third person is going to say yes,but if he was how come that he didn't carry Wenton when Olof was injured?Maybe lineup wouldent get fucked up if he was. Its quite sad story that a lot of times luck>skill

So true I think daps has really helped them a lot. I don't expect a lot of BIG results right now. IMO I would like to see daps or arya coaching and put Davey back in.

Asian-EU-NA do not work. If you think about the decent internationals line-up you have FaZe and mouz, both have players only from EU. Do not have sense if you think that a team with players from different continents is capable of work well.

Considering that it will be on lan, Echo fox will probably lose to both Immortals and TSM
