Spirit and ALLIN to Major Qualifier

Spirit and ALLINtwo teams consisting of four players from Russia and one from Ukraine–met in the upper-bracket final of the StarLadder CIS Minor with a spot for the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier on the line.

The best-of-three series started on ALLIN's Mirage, where Nikolay "mir" Bityukov lead his team to a dominating 16-4 victory after they picked up 11 rounds on the CT side of the map.

On the following map, Overpass, ALLIN's Leonid "chopper" Vishnyakov had a massive performance, finishing with a 29-19 K-D. However, his team wasn't able to keep up and they let the second map slip, losing it 16-14 as Spirit forced the third map of the series.

Moving on to the decider, Spirit managed to get a slim 8-7 lead on the Terrorist side of Dust2. Vadim "DavCost" Vasilyev and Anton "tonyblack" Kolesnikov's 2v5 on the A site turned out to be crucial as it allowed Spirit to edge out the third map with another 16-14securing them a spot at the Major Qualifier in Atlanta.

After losing the upper-bracket final, ALLIN had another chance to get to the Major Qualifier in a best-of-one consolidation final match against VwS.

There was a lot of pressure on both teams to perform, but it was seemingly the Lithuanians that struggled to cope with it as they had a bad start to the Terrorist side of Train. 

After going down 5-0, VwS managed to get two rounds on the board but couldn't build momentum, ending the half with just five Terrorist rounds.

After the switch, ALLIN showed some all-out aggression and swiftly closed out the match 16-6, dropping only one round on their T-side.

these are not groups, its probably just teams that will attend major qualifier :)

The table doesn't represent groups for the qualifier, just the teams that will be there. The format hasn't even been announced yet, and the Swiss system is expected anyway.
