Americas Minor qualifier matches set

PGL has revealed the matchups for the first round of the closed North American qualifier for the Americas Minor.

Misfits will fight for a spot at the Minor

You're overvaluing how good coL, RUSH, Miami, Eclipse and all open qualifier teams are. All three teams are more than capable of qualifying for that LAN.

Mythic lost against HEAT (a mix of Rank G players) then Miami Flamingos beaten them easily in the next bracket in some Qualyfier. That talks a lot.

that was cologne, wasn't it?
2017-05-09 19:58
I think so. I remember that spLyce move forward over Miami (19-17 on such a tight game where Miami was winning like 14-8 or something), before that Miami beaten Heat easily and the last one prevailed over Mythic on a tied match (16-14). So by logic spLyce > Miami > Heat > Mythic. Changing the topic a little bit I seriously think that Miami could make the way to LAN Qualyfier. Those guys have truly potential and they usually go deep on LAN events because some latin-american blood or something (talking specially about JonY, tutehen, and guishorro).
2017-05-10 01:30
Da fack u talking about, when have they go deep in a LAN? I know they have gotten pretty close to qualifying to some but that's it. They need to stop crumbling under pressure and then they might have some chances to qualify to closed qualifiers
2017-05-10 06:31
Wtf? They've been there with proxure 2 months aprox. Stop scrumbling? They are doing their best to qualify for any tourny ofc they can win or loose thats part of the game but they are getting better and better. Im always said its about time! The key is that they have more experience than before and now the can reach to the 5th spot (they can beat coL for example).
2017-05-10 15:18
They have lost a few important games when they were up 14-9 They're doing great and have accomplished a lot in such a few time but they'll have to step up if they want to become T2 NA
2017-05-10 15:26
That was before. Now they have more experience and not sure if they are gonna make it to the lan minor but they will be in form for this qualy. Ofc they need to be in premier aswell to level up the hole team. In the meanwhile the events will know mf so this is not the last chance. And surely MF are going to renovate that contract with them.
2017-05-10 16:06
Hope so,they have good chances to take the fifth spot. Let's hope MF can do it
2017-05-10 16:09
JonY and tutehen did it big on TWC. I don't fucking care if they were not Miami Flamingos yet, but they cleaerly improved their level on this event and played way better than on many Lan tournaments in Argentina. Same with Proxure and sickLy winning the LAN qualify to some Chinese tournament that I can't remember the name and showing some good shit that they didn't show before. Ofc they've a lot to improve if they want to make some big goals, but they're for sure in the good way. They already showed a lot of improvement and fixed mistakes. Which games are you talking about? The only one I remember that they crumbled under pressure was against spLyce.

It is true that they suck considering they cant even qualify for esea premier. Somehow they got invited along teams from esl pro league? All the player in miami trashmingos are overrated as fuck hope they get deported.
2017-05-10 05:23
It's their first NA experience and they already won Esea open league, so they're just waiting until ESEA admins make the decision to invite them to Esea Premier, which is very likely if you take in count that they lost one game in the whole league on OT and the max amount of rounds they lost in a single match was 10. Btw they already beaten some Premier teams, and in the past days they couldnt take it against splyce (already a Pro League team) lossing 17-19 which means they've good potential and could make it big if they keep this path.
2017-05-10 07:12
Winning esea open with most teams that are pugs? While they got pay to play csgo and stay in gaming house. How about they qualify through esea main like how luminosity gaming did. Even after that they need to play against premier teams which are 10x better than the team they face in esea open. Luminosity gaming did it and qualify for esl pro league and they 100% deserve the invite. While miami flamingos with the similar story have stayed in usa for like 1 years and still cant qualify for any notable league and lans.
2017-05-10 08:32
They've been there since February/March, not 1 year
2017-05-10 12:22

They need to play ESEA Open to be able to play in ESEA Main. They already won ESEA Open, they are guaranteed in ESEA Main and they can be invited to ESEA Premier. Are you fucking dumb? @edit Flamingos is in USA since february if im not wrong.

2017-05-10 17:15
God, your arguments haven't a solid base. You're talking about things you've no clue. Dude, they've been in USA for 2 months as five people (3 months if you take in count the time that Proxure was playing from Chile cause of some Visa troubles). If they have to play on Esea Main I'm pretty sure they'll make it to finals and ensuring their place on Premier league. They've beaten tons of Main teams already. Btw Luminosity've been on USA for like 1 year or more and they didn't do some big shit yet.
