PGL Major Main Qualifier round 4 match-ups

After all matches of the third round at the Main Qualifier came to a close, PGL drew match-ups for round four, which will see three more teams qualify for the Major.

During day three, mousesports and G2 became the first two teams to qualify for the Major by winning their third match in a row, while Tengri and OpTic were eliminated with 0-3 records.

Cloud9 and FlipSid3 to face off for a spot at the Major

12 teams are still in the running at the Main Qualifier, battling for the remaining six spots. In round four, six teams of the 2-1 pool will clash for three of those spots, and three more teams will have been eliminated after matches of the 1-2 pool come to a close.

Here are the match-ups of round four, which were drawn after G2 edged FlipSid3 in the final match of the day:

09:00    Europe PENTA        vs. Russia Vega Squadron   *
10:30 China TYLOO vs. Europe HellRaisers **
12:00 Norway Dignitas  vs. Australia Renegades **
13:30 Sweden GODSENT   vs. Brazil Immortals **
15:00 United States Cloud9 vs. CIS FlipSid3 *
16:30 Germany BIG vs. United States Liquid *
       
* Winner qualifies for the PGL Major with a 3-1 record
** Loser gets eliminated from the qualifier with a 1-3 record

CIS Should not have their own minor. They could play in the EU league. If anyone should have their own minor right now. Give it to scandinavia. So many solid Swedish, Finnish and Danish teams out there. Way better than these CIS noobs.
2017-07-01 22:28
Yeah, maybe we could have 1 team from CIS and 3 from Europe, 4 if we get a repeat of this year where there's only 7 teams locked for the major qual

Swiss system is still the best to get the top 8 teams here. Only flaw this current system has is it doesn't have seeded match ups (1 vs 16, 2 vs 15 etc for the first round), which is basically the norm for swiss tournaments in chess. :()
2017-07-02 00:41
they played against two NA teams so 2 free wins lul

Slovakia SLAVak 
Nah, I don't think so. They have played really well last months, they even threw away some tournaments to focus on this Qualifier. Johnta (or how is it written) said in an interview that they changed a lot of things and it sometimes worked in practise but sometimes it backfired. Clearly the new tactics don't work at all... They should go back to the old ones.
2017-07-01 20:48
The number one rule of throwing is you gotta be the favorite or at least 50-50. HR played really well so people would be like "hey, they're actually pretty good" and they quickly became favorites instead of underdogs. Why would they want to go to the major? They'll get rekt in group stages and sent home, this way they can at least make decent money going out.

2017-07-02 12:08
This has to be bait. These players are 32 rounds away from making it to the biggest tournament of their lives and I'm pretty sure they aren't thinking "Hey, we could make a lot of money by throwing!" There is already consistent money in playing and winning, plus the chance at prestige. Just because you would throw doesn't mean they are...
2017-07-02 01:35
You're forgetting one thing. They're under contract, the org controls them now. And god knows who runs CIS-region orgs, Mafia? Bratva? Look back a month, HR is absolutely amazing, they're crushing T1 opponents. And now look at them, they win the first pistol round and then that's it. Give me a break lol. You're not Steph Curry at the FT line one month and Shaq the next.

All this shows is you have a narrow minded view of a complex competitive af scene. Attention to detail / mindset of players along with teamwork / communication levels are both such valuable things now. More than it mattered in the past, mistakes or shortcomings matter and matches can swing depending on small things. So the bottom line in this pro scene it is sink or swim, it takes a lot to just hang around in top 20 now, this isn't 2014 anymore
2017-07-02 07:26
I hope C9 and Liquid Qualify just to get a good competition and stickers... Can't wait to see new shark stickers lol

jkaem said they were trying to find balance between structured and loose play. Unfortunately, so far in this qualifier they haven't balanced things properly. Don't know if it's the nerves or what... However, they are a strong team when they do play a bit more structured.

vega lose to penta, and rekt f3 in deciders, mark my words vegaFTW
2017-07-01 21:18
Actually possible bc Vega went 2-2
2017-07-02 13:12
Could C9 take this? I mean, F3 have been trash up until this event. If F3 return to form then I think we'll be seeing Clown9 at a major
2017-07-01 21:22
C9 always trashes flipside, I swear, C9 will destroy them again, flipside has played good vs G2 granted, but the other teams they played are trash, nothing to insinuate they will beat c9

Kind of hilarious that they keep giving C9 the better teams to play in the qualifier yet Vega is dam near getting handed a free spot. They should be playing this round against C9, not Flipside, who should be playing PENTA.
