Cloud9 to Major Qualifier over CLG

Cloud9 have made it to the PGL Major's Main Qualifier after defeating CLG 2-0 (Inferno 16-12, Cache 16-8) in the consolidation final of the Americas Minor.

The series for a spot at the PGL Major's Main Qualifier began on Inferno, where Cloud9 got off to a flying start, picking up a 6-1 lead on the offense.

CLG started clawing their way back into the half with some of their players putting up great individual plays in pivotal rounds, such as Stephen "reltuC" Cutler's quad-kill from pit, and another from Kenneth "koosta" Suen on B, which helped their team secure an 8-7 scoreline.

After reltuC got three kills in the next pistol, CLG picked up three more rounds before Cloud9 evened it out with relative ease. Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert's team continued to defend well, only conceding one more round as they headed into map two with a 16-12 victory on their pick.

Stewie2K's Cloud9 make it to the Main Qualifier

Cloud9 once again got off to a successful start on Cache, this time as CT, dropping just one round in the first 10 with Jake "Stewie2K" Yip playing an important part due to several individual plays. However, CLG made a match of it, picking up the last five rounds, abusing the B bombsite over and over.

Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham was the man of the hour in the next pistol round, clutching a 1v4 afterplant situation from A main, putting his team at 12-6. reltuC's quick triple in checkers then allowed CLG to pick up two rounds in a row, but Cloud9 didn't leave any more room for their opponents to come back into the match, securing the last four rounds for 16-8, 2-0.

Unfair that CLG and some of the smaller EU teams will be eliminated when shitters like tengri and renegades get to go.
2017-06-12 00:22
They need their chance too bro... And I'm pretty sure both can upset higher tier teams
2017-06-12 00:22
Just combine CIS and EU minors with a separate CIS online qualifier, and put all the CIS spots in EU. Boom, fair. I guarantee you 0 teams from the CIS qualifier would make it through in that scenario. Asia only deserves one spot, they literally never make it.

i wouldnt doubt CIS teams look what happened last major C9 eliminated by HR(CIS team) and NiP eliminated by VG(also a CIS team) and imo tengri is better than CLG
2017-06-12 00:24
Hellraisers is a european team. VG had the overperformance of a lifetime and STILL didn't qualify, think about that, that's how bad the teams from the CIS minor are.

2017-06-12 00:26
Cloud9 and IMT didn't qualify because they both horribly underperformed. Vega extremely overperformed and still didn't make it. Don't even joke with me that the CIS and Asia teams are as good as Cloud9 and IMT lmao. EU minor teams>>NA minor teams>>CIS/Asia

This is the most retarded post I've ever seen. If you legitimately believe Renegades is better than Cloud9 and IMT I have no idea what to say to you. Lmao

IMT have a chance but doubt they'll qualify without FNX and cloud 9 is fucking shit I have no idea why you still have hope in them xD
2017-06-12 00:36
You're derailing the discussion. You just claimed that Tengri, Vega Squadron, Renegades, and Tyloo are better than Cloud9 and IMT. Which is absolutely retarded, and a fucking idiotic thing to say.
2017-06-12 00:39
as idiotic as saying C9 will make it to the Major
2017-06-12 01:04
Which is why I didn't say that lmao. Anyway cloud9's chances of making it are ridiculously higher than those other teams I listed. Can't imagine getting through to a bntet fanboy tho lmao

NICE , awesome tournament from Ska(for once) and Autimatic , Stewie's calling is finally the best way to play for C9 with this roster ; shroud and n0thing still quite disappointing but less than in EPL so let's hope for the main qualifier

his calling is working against lower tier teams. as soon as they play decent teams such as immortals they get completly outplayed with calling being a big part in that.

Shame, hoped to see C9 choke and fix this excuse of a team
2017-06-12 00:36
Bad display from CLG. Expected them to be able to handle C9 after their defeat yesterday vs Immortals. Problem with NA teams is that they're all flair and no strats or coordination. Its crazy how these NA teams cant handle 1 in a million pug plays. Immortals showed yesterday how a real team is supposed to play. C9 looked like an amateur team going up against them and they easily read all of these pug plays like an open book. Literally all C9 was doing on CT-side was push either B or A main with an awp every round looking for a pick and CLG just walked into the shots all the time. You look at Immortals and they strategically placed their awpers perfectly every round to counter it.

Liquid and CLG are the only NA teams with real structure, which obviously matters seing as how Liquid had a Semis finish at EPL S5.
2017-06-12 01:13
Tbf look at the teams Liquid got. Liquid beat OpTic NRG and a North that was dicking around to make the playoffs. Then they got EnVyUs. Pretty easy run if you ask me

You don't allow Rickeh to take the risks. The team lose. Snipers has the instinct and spirit of an eagle. Never put them in a cage.
