Americas Minor teams determined

All eight teams taking part in the Americas Minor have been determined with the closed qualifier coming to an end.

Over the last two days, 16 teams battled in the closed qualifier, played in an adjusted Swiss format, in which two losses resulted in elimination while three wins ensured qualification.

In the end, all of the favored sides qualified. With Skyler "Relyks" Weaver standing in for Sean "seang@res" Gares (who wouldn't be able to attend the Minor due to his wedding taking place during it), Misfits made it through unscathed alongside NRG.

Misfits will attend the Minor, but without seang@res

With three wins and one loss, Luminosity and Complexity followed, while CLG grabbed the last spot after coming back from an 11-15 deficit on Cache against Bushido Boyz.

With five teams joining South America's open qualifier winner paiN and invited sides Cloud9 and Immortals, these eight lineups will take part in the Americas Minor from June 8-11, where they'll fight for two spots at the PGL Major's offline qualifier.

C9 lan? 4Head

In a langame between C9 and IMT I would set the odds to 60:40, favoring C9. So if this bigmouth would accept my bet, Im a 10% favor in my eyes, thats really good.

Imo 4 teams here got the biggest chance. C9 Immortals Misfits CLG (Depending on Koosta hitting his shots and team playing good overall) otherwise Luminosity.

They don't have to go through the minor. They are already at the qualifier for the major.

Qualifier for the Minor is over, now the Minor, then the qualifier for the Major, then the Major? Do I have it right? This whole qualification system is a mess
