Space Soldiers beat Virtus.pro to qualify for ESEA GC & EPL Relegation

Space Soldiers placed third in ESEA MDL Season 26 Europe following a 2-0 win over Virtus.pro (Cache 16-4, Mirage 16-13), qualifying for ESL Pro League Relegation as well as the Global Challenge LAN.

The playoffs of ESEA MDL Season 26 Europe have taken place over the course of the last three days. Virtus.pro and Space Soldiers both passed the quarter-finals but then fell to AGO and eXtatus, respectively, with the Turkish squad fielding Çağatay "DESPE" Sedef instead of Ahmet "paz" Karahoca.

The two teams then met in the third-place decider, which had a spot in ESL Pro League Season 6 Relegation on the line alongside a place at the Season 26 Global Challenge, where the top sides of each region will meet at an undisclosed date.

Space Soldiers will get a chance to qualify for the next season of ESL Pro League

Despite fielding a stand-in again, Space Soldiers bested the Poles after just two maps, clinching Cache with ease, 16-4, and Mirage 16-13, with the team's stars, Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş and Buğra "Calyx" Arkın, spearheading the way.

Virtus.pro have thus missed out on the second consecutive season of ESL Pro League after failing to qualify for Season 6 following a loss to PENTA in the previous season's relegation.

they were always trash online so what's your point? but on lan, when it matters, they can win against your precious so called "team"
2017-11-17 11:42

lucky? they proved that they can still win against top tier teams... and that's why they will get invites it's not like whole year has only two lans -> ecs and epl even G2 failed to qualify for epl lan finals... and most likely ECS let's not invite G2 from now on
2017-11-17 16:17
lmao what the fuck does G2 have to do with it? yeah they failed to qualify and are shit as well. is that your point? "VP is shit but so is G2" ahahaha

my point is that online play is random and some teams perform better on lan -> Gambit, SK, VP, G2, Na`Vi VP isn't shit, same G2

lol even at LAN VP suck most of the time. ELEAGUE, DH Masters Malmö, ESL Cologne... list goes on
