FRENCH CANADIANS stun IMT in Americas Minor qualifier; Rise Nation & Luminosity through

Immortals have failed to qualify for the Americas Minor after being defeated by FRENCH CANADIANS in the final round of the North American closed qualifier.

The PGL Major Krakow runners-up, who had lost to SoaR in the first round of the qualifier, could not string any rounds together during the first half of the match and went into the break with a massive 11-4 deficit to overcome. 

FRENCH CANADIANS further added to their lead by taking the pistol round off of a quad-kill from Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik, and they followed that up with three more rounds to reach match point.

Immortals have failed to qualify for the Americas Minor

A last-gasp effort from Immortals still earned them a round, but a triple kill from Keven "PLAYER1" Champagne in a 2v3 post-plant situation gave the Canadian side their 16th round of the match.

Meanwhile, Rise Nation picked up their third victory of the qualifier after defeating SoaR 16-13, earning their first-ever spot at a Minor.

The final North American spot was determined by a keenly-contested match between two Pro League sides, Luminosity and Misfits. With Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes racking up 29 kills, the Brazilian side picked up eight rounds in both halves to pick up a 16-12 win and assure themselves of a spot at the $50,000 event.

The team list for the Americas Minor, taking place from November 2-5 in Toronto, currently looks as follows:

But for the Immortals organisation, winning is just one piece of a much more important and broader puzzle. "It is less about the end result and it is more about the process, the inputs that go into winning: the hard work, the dedication, the sacrifice and the discipline that create champions, not the championship itself.

The thing is, that isn't the first time NiP failed at it.
2017-10-16 03:50
Still they got "stunned twice" from T3 teams today and are out of minor, not even a major. How is IMTs "stunning" a bigger deal ? I can understand that it would if it was the original team that made it to finals but they are not.. they are ranked like 50 in the world ffs.

Would you rather play in a team that pays you 30k a month but you never win or qualify for anything or a team that pays you the bare minimum to live but you actualy win alot and are a top 3 team I think its pretty obviusly the winning team with less money

Anyone has a good chance if they play well. I desperately want Slemmy to get better so he can be considered to come up into one of the big league NA teams. Imagine C9 bringing him back and giving this renewed guy a second chance. His fragging has come up leaps and bounds (online, yeah). His tactics are pretty good, not gob b or Ex6tenZ but they have some sort of cohesion.
