It will be way tougher for them to qualify than for 100.000$ DHs where the best NA team is often CLG. In this one there is C9/Immortals as really good teams, and OpTic/CLG as good teams (RNG is also pretty close to Misfits levelwise). Too bad they couldn't get out of groups at either DH Valencia or Atlanta to see more of them.
2017-08-11 17:26

now that they have won the major they are between t1-t2,but back when the invites were sent they were not.anyway they are invited to other events.And lets not forget that they won a major with Zeus in the team,who knows how good will they be now without him?
2017-08-11 17:55
Just because gambit won the major, doesnt mean they need to be invited all the time, they still have to prove their value.

Its incredible to me that this is just a qualifier to get to a tournament. The ESL New York Closed Qualifier is at the same caliber of a tier 1 event a year ago. Everyone is so good, who the fuck knows who is going to advance! I'm going out on a huge limb here and going to say CLG and NIP because who the hell knows what can happen these days. I'm hoping Cloud9 and NIP qualify though.
