Tengri book Major qualifier spot

After defeating Vega Squadron 2-1 in the upper bracket final, Tengri are the first CIS team to secure a spot at the Major's main qualifier.

The penultimate day of the CIS Minor began with Tengri beating Quantum Bellator Fire 2-0 (16-8 on Train and 16-11 on Mirage). In the other upper bracket semi-final, Vega Squadron crushed pro100 with 16-5 and 16-4 scorelines on Cache and Nuke, respectively.

Quantum Bellator Fire and pro100 then met in the lower bracket final, with the latter managing to avenge their loss in the winners' match of Group B. This time, the Ukrainian side did not let their opponents answer and won two maps in a row - 16-4 on Nuke and 16-9 on Cobblestone.

Ramz1k's Tengri have made it to the Minor's grand final

Tengri started out the upper bracket final with an impressive 11-4 lead as Terrorists on Cache, Vega Squadron's map pick. The Kazakhs then hit 14 rounds after winning the pistol and the following two, but the Russian squad replied with 10 straight rounds. After trading the next two, Vega Squadron were the ones to close off the map 19-16 on overtime.

Once again, Ramazan "⁠Ramz1kBO$$⁠" Bashizov and co. proved their T-side's calibre with a 10-5 scoreline on Overpass. Vega Squadron then won the second pistol round, but lost the following one, which led Tengri for a 13-6 lead. Despite their adversaries' effort, who managed to reach the tie, the Kazakhstan team took the series to a third map after winning their own pick 16-13.

The decider map, Mirage, began with both teams trading rounds. Still, Tengri managed to grab six straight rounds as CTs, leading them to a dominant 9-2 score. Despite losing the following one, Bektiyar "⁠fitch⁠" Bahytov's squad continued to pave the way for the victory with a 12-3 lead by the end of the first half. From that point, the Kazakhs easily guaranteed a spot at the Major qualifier with an overwhelming 16-5 win.

Wow, it must be disheatening to win the match of your life, trying your absolute best only to be commemorated on HLTV (by far the best and most recognized CS news website) by having the TITLE of the article congratulate the opposing team... This isn't even a small grammatical error.... HOW CAN YOU NOT EVEN REALIZE THE TITLE IS INCORRECT? I notice so many spelling mistakes in HLTV articles, and always wonder if there are any editors overlooking these columns... I have my answer today.

English is not my first language, nor am I the columnist at the largest Counter-Strike news website who actually receives a PAY-CHEQUE for writing articles. Do you know why no major news outlet has made an error similar to this? It's because they can actually afford editors. Chill m8

Spelling 'disheartening' wrongly is not in anyway related to English being your first language or not. It was a mistake just like eZIo's. You're telling me that receiving a pay-cheque should make you a robot, a machine that makes no errors? Not sure if you're living in actual world or in your fantasy. But everyone makes mistakes and this one was corrected within seconds. And what? no major news outlet has made an error similar to this? poynter.org/2014/the-year-in-media-error.. This is just the first link that poped-up, want more? google is your friend too.

Thank you for your recognition, Winde. As for my mistake, I assure you that this has nothing to do with our editors since I have all the responsibility for this. We want the readers to have all the correct information they want as soon as possible, so I'm really sorry for the incorrect title.

Thanks for the comment, eZ. I honestly appreciate all the work that you and the other columnists/writers contribute to the website. I always enjoy reading these articles, regardless of any mistakes/inaccuracies that occur. I understand that HLTV wants to release articles as fast as they can; a model that I fully support as a reader. Due to this, I'm sure that there are writers who already have a segment written for when Tengri wins, and another pre-written for when Vega wins and this can cause a mix-up when time is of essence. I understand your position, and there is no need for an apology, mate. These things do occasionally happen. As a reader, I was just shocked that the most important detail of the article was misplaced. I was a bit too over-reactive on this scenario admittedly. Nevertheless, thank-you for your amazing work for this website and the community!

I completely understand your position. To be honest, I wrote the title before the news and then I published it without changing. Once again, thank you for your comments.

wow, impressive! Congratz Tengri team!
2017-06-11 00:05
so glad they get a chance to play offline against some good international team now. there is potential as well... even with a medium draw - they will get 1 or 2 maps. having them at the Major over BIG or Renegades would be awesome for a fan.
2017-06-11 00:34
Can't wait to see NiP play at the major qualifier!
