Misfits, RNG, coL to DH Las Vegas

The closed North American qualifier for Dreamhack Masters Las Vegas is over as Misfits, Renegades and compLexity managed to qualify for the event. This means that teams like Liquid and Immortals will not be attending the event.

The 16 participants for Dreamhack Masters Las Vegas have now been decided as the closed North American qualifier has come to an end. 

The qualifier was played in best-of-three, single-elimination format, and it started off well for the favorites, as they all managed to make it through the first round. In the second round,Immortals suprisingly went out to compLexity after losing 2-1, and compLexity were ready for the semifinals.

Liquid also advanced to the semifinals even though they were playing from Europe, but when they bumped into Renegades, they lost. Liquid did put up a good fight, as two of the maps went into overtime, but in the end, Renegades were too strong.

jks' Renegades qualified for DH Las Vegas

In the other semifinal, compLexity and the newly formed Misfits faced. This game wasn't even close to be as exciting as the semifinal between Liquid and Renegades, as Misfits secured their spot at Las Vegas without any problems.

There were 3 spots up for grabs, and the last match was between the losers from the semifinals; Liquid and compLexity. compLexity managed to ruin Liquid's dreams about going to Vegas. 

With the North American qualifier over, the final 3 teams for the event have been decided. The participants can be found here:

Poland Virtus.pro  United States Cloud9 Denmark Astralis North America OpTic
Denmark North CIS Natus Vincere  Brazil SK Sweden NiP
Sweden fnatic Europe mousesports Kazakhstan Gambit Europe FaZe
China TYLOO United States Misfits Australia Renegades Canada Complexity

The $450,000 tournament will take place from February 15-19.

Liquid had to play 6 matches straight through the early morning with 130+ ping... FeelsLiquidMan First 12 teams are great, but the remaining 4 well get crushed
2017-01-16 10:15
I know, also IMT was playing with a stand in, NRG was playing with 2 stand in's. The timing fucked a lot of teams over.
2017-01-16 13:35
misfits and renegades, good stuff

wtf, who wrote this? Liquid also advanced to the semifinals even though they were playing from Europe, but when they bumped into Renegades, they lost. Liquid did put up a good fight, as two of the maps went into overtime, but in the end, Renegades were too strong. the way its written sounds like its from a 14 year old
2017-01-16 15:10
Where is the problem exactly?
2017-01-17 02:34
its poorly written, honestly sounds like something i would have written when i was 14

Funny to see RNG TyLoo and Complexity here, and teams like G2 not here because the qualifier is 10 times harder in EU lol

France Kabby 
i'm not crying, it's just that the level of the tournament could be higher, but i guess getting 16-4 or 16-5'd by top EU teams must be fun
2017-01-16 20:59
Dude there is already plenty of tournaments with all top tier teams only so give it a break honestly. Let the lesser teams actually compete mate.

Should've given 6 spots to EU and 1 spot to NA, seeing as C9, OpTic and SK were invited

coL destroyed IMT and Liquid, they're clearly improving. I like that
2017-01-16 16:49
United States snack- 
Misfits : Yeah alright they have some decent NA players maybe they can pull out an upset like autimatic TSM did Renegades: Everyone knows them they're decent whatever they can hang Complexity: Holy shit waste of a spot I'd be shocked if they got over 5 rounds this is ridiculous they beat IMT with a standin and Liquid with 150+ ping can we get an overrule here complexity are fucking terrible

Your argument doesn't make any sense. You make tournaments based on interest and views, not on best teams.
2017-01-17 13:21
bro, i know this but still...
2017-01-17 20:54
Was rooting so hard for Liquid. Shame they didn't make it. Does anyone know why their ping was so high?
