More Brazilians than Americans. Five servants from the wonderful colony of Canada, two Brits themselves (god save the queen), two French, and an Aussie. #DiversityMakesUsStronger #FeelsSoBadMan

Love the playoffs double elimination format. Cloud9 and Immortals are the favorites here until they both don't fck themselves here.

Sooo... Luminosity (brazilians) go to Americas Minor from NA(!) qualifier, but Renegades (australians) can play Asia Minor? How does it work?
2017-06-06 20:21
World smash143 
Any team with majority players from North or South america can join the NA qualifiers. The SA qualifiers is specifically for teams that can't travel to NA to qualify.

2017-06-06 21:33
Brazil Observer10 
IMT CLG C9 LG/NRG Those are the ones that qualify (if 4 qualify). Otherwise, IMT and C9 qualify.

Immortals with the easy group, I see.
2017-06-07 10:50
IMT with the shit group, rigged
2017-06-07 11:20
How many times is NRG going to play LG in all leagues
2017-06-07 11:37
C9 CLG NRG Immortals advance... C9 defeat Immortals (Hopefully) CLG defeat NRG... Immortals beat NRG to move to Consolidation Finals... C9 beat CLG in Upper bracket... CLG beat Immortals in Consolidation Finals... C9 beat CLG in Grand Finals! The only thing that's 50/50 is Immortals performance due to their recent form after fnx left.
