G2 qualify for StarSeries Season 3

March 18th, 2017 17:58

G2 have qualified for SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 after dominating the bracket stage of the European qualifier.

As an invited side, G2 skipped the groups and competed for one of the three spots at SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 on offer in the European qualifier.

The new French squad didn't drop a single map on their way to securing a place at the $300,000 event, defeating PRIDE, Space Soldiers, and compatriots EnVyUs in the playoffs.

G2 will make their debut at StarSeries

The Kiev event will be G2's first offline appearance since the team came together in early February, when Richard "shox" Papillon, Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro and Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux joined up with EnVyUs' trio, Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, and Kenny "kennyS" Schrub.

With the Frenchmen joining the list of teams at StarSeries, it now looks as follows:

Brazil SK  Poland Virtus.pro  Denmark North  Sweden NiP
Denmark Astralis  Europe FaZe CIS Natus Vincere  Kazakhstan Gambit 
Korea MVP Project  China TyLoo China 5POWER Brazil Immortals
France G2 Europe EU qualifier  Europe EU qualifier  Other NA qualifier

fnatic and HellRaisers will lock horns for another spot with the loser facing EnVyUs in the deciding match, while Renegades and CLG are scheduled to face off on March 20th in the North American qualifier.

SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 is set to take place in Kiev at the National Palace of Arts "Ukraina" from April 4-9.

2017-03-18 21:24
s1mple is not the problem the problem is that they kicked Zeus
2017-03-18 21:42
not directly, but they kicked Zeus so they could get simple. not saying he is the problem, because he's the hard-carry for those cyka boyz
2017-03-18 21:43
yeah cuz at the time coaches could be iglers they got fucked by that rule coming outta nowhere
2017-03-19 05:06

2017-03-18 23:13
Immortals will probably send them home again
2017-03-19 00:57

2017-03-19 21:32

2017-03-18 17:58
RIP EnVyus :( Should've been HR vs EnVy & Fnatic vs G2 :( EDIT: Oh shit there's still change for EnVyUs :S
2017-03-18 17:59
Erm it is going to be unless your implying HR beat fnatic
2017-03-18 18:00
Nah dude, I didn't know there is a nother match between the losers. I only thought 1st and 2nd go to the LAN Finals, had no idea that 3rd place goes to the finals aswel thats why. All good rn as EnVy still got chance :s
2017-03-18 18:01
you may have been thinking about the na quals :P bcz thers 2 spots in NA and 3 for Eu
2017-03-18 18:05
Nah, I didn't even know there are 3 EU Spots left that's what happened. What I thought that Winner of G2 vs EnVy qualify - loser no chance winner of Fnatic vs HR quality - loser no chance. What I didn't know that there is a 3rd EU spot at the LAN and EnVy still got a chance (:
2017-03-18 18:06
Change? I think you mean chance righz?
2017-03-18 18:44
Yes I meant chance. ty.
2017-03-18 18:49
Change for them to catch the bus home
2017-03-19 01:00
Oh yeah, nice mentality from nV's fans these day: pray for an easy bracket to win... Think it through for a little and I wish you to get rid of that looser nebtality. GL&HF, wish nV to secure their spot as well.
2017-03-18 20:08
rip envy
2017-03-18 17:58
G2 won ECS season 1 , so they will win SL season 3
2017-03-18 17:59
Nice logic. Fnatic won the 1st major... Why not the other majors??
2017-03-18 18:46
Do i forget that katowice 2015 and cologne 2015 weren't majors?
2017-03-18 19:04
They were dude
2017-03-18 20:13
because the other majors weren't dreamhack you retarto
2017-03-18 20:12
you are even more retarded than teezy. I'm out of this thread. It might lower my IQ
2017-03-18 20:23
good bye DonalPutin nobody are will miss you ;)
2017-03-18 20:24
why "more" retarded? :D im not retarded at all, i was just making fun of his stupid sentence :)
2017-03-19 04:41
yeah like Dreamhack Cluj Napoca, you retard
2017-03-19 04:39
same with Envy :D They won Cluj-Napoca 2015 and no DreamHack mAJORS :(
2017-03-27 10:42
ez lan win incoming for le superteam
2017-03-18 18:01
EnVyUs still have one more chance against either fnatic or HR, hope its HR they face
2017-03-18 18:03
Ye it will be HR.HR wont win versus Fnatic itsnt possible.Play versus navi 1-1 and versus vp 1-1 and loose versus HR rly ? :D
2017-03-18 22:40
G2 is the best! #G2ARMY
2017-03-18 18:09
This is gonna be a huge tournament, I'm hyped already.
2017-03-18 18:10
Space soldiers so close...
2017-03-18 18:10
It wasnt even close
2017-03-18 18:31
SS weren't that close really, G2 were comfortable winners on Cobble once they got on to CT and they were always in control of Overpass.
2017-03-18 18:46
I think it deserved more space soldiers G2 new team
2017-03-19 13:33
And? This G2 team were formed to win majors, their players are overall way better than Space Soldiers, who have never done anything significant at a big LAN; I don't even think they've ever qualified for a $250k international tournament
2017-03-19 15:34
RPK has no business being in that NV team , G2 was the better team and they won
2017-03-18 18:14
that would be hallerious if they'll end up in a one group with t1-t2 teams only
2017-03-18 18:39
Looks biased that you made a news post for G2 but not Immortals, should've just made a"StarSeries S3 EU qualifiers over" post like you'll do with NA
2017-03-18 18:37
G2's win is such a total surprise it made it in the news title lol
2017-03-18 18:42
There's all this hype around this "Super"team that they get a news post for beating 3 worthless teams. Patético.
2017-03-18 20:32
Awesome. Looking forward to finally seeing them on LAN; we'll get an idea what they're made of. If they play like online games then shox will be carrying :)
2017-03-18 18:44
Well on paper they look strong. But we'll see i guess :) The French scene has been unstable for quiet a while.
2017-03-18 19:02
I'm so sorry for SpaceSoldiers. They deserved to go to Ukraine.
2017-03-18 19:14
why tho? they lost fair and square, they don't deserve it
2017-03-18 19:23
you are right but ss playing with high ping. if they played on equal pings ss could win.
2017-03-18 19:43
Keep telling yourself that Lmao delusional fakeflagging kebabs.
2017-03-19 11:48
its my opinion. stfu.
2017-03-19 12:20
+fnatic +EnVy +Renegades Pretty good team list.
2017-03-18 19:26
Renegades lul but then CLG rofl
2017-03-18 19:45
Astralis will win.
2017-03-18 19:41
astralis ez
2017-03-18 22:28
EZ for BnTeT solo carrying Tyloo :)
2017-03-19 00:21
Ez for faze.
2017-03-19 03:00

2017-03-19 06:19
Astralis, VP, SK and FaZe PogChamp dis gon b gud
2017-03-19 12:18
nice tournament groups ez for astralis, sk 2nd ez for VP, maybe faze 2nd ez for north, navi 2nd ez for gambit, immortals 2nd
2017-03-19 12:22
Niko and BnTeT is in the same group!!!
2017-03-19 18:17
3 Asian teams yet NA only gets 1 Qualifier slot. Teams like Liquid and Cloud9 both deserve to be there more than 5Power and MVP. Or just throw them all out and invite more EU teams.
