Three more qualify for EU Minor

iGame.com, LDLC and BIG are through to the European Minor Championship after winning their respective matches in the fourth round of the qualifier.

In what was the longest match so far in the qualifier, iGame.com moved past Tricked in triple overtime to send the Danes into the fifth round and facing the prospect of elimination.

LDLC pulled off a great second-half performance against dignitas and overturned a 9-6 deficit thanks to a fantastic display from Alex "ALEX" McMeekin, who ended the match on 32 frags.

LDLC through to the Minor

Maikil "Golden" Selim's 34 kills were not enough for fnatic Academy to fend off the threat of BIG as the German side scraped their way to a narrow 16-14 victory to book their spot at the Minor.

But the most talked about match of the round was the one that pitted Space Soldiers against Ninjas in Pyjamas. With a strong display from Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş, who boasted a 2.36 Rating, the Turkish team cruised to a 16-5 victory to hand the Swedes their third defeat of the qualifier. 

Here is how the Swiss stage is looking after four rounds:

Qualified 2-2 Eliminated
France Envy Sweden fnatic Academy Denmark North Academy
Europe PENTA Norway Dignitas Sweden Epsilon
Germany BIG Denmark Heroic Sweden NiP
Europe LDLC  Denmark Tricked Sweden Red Reserve
Finland iGame.com Turkey Space Soldiers Bulgaria Outlaws
  Poland Kinguin

The fifth and final round of the qualifier, scheduled for 20:40, looks as follows:

Turkey Space Soldiers vs. Norway Dignitas
