Trio qualify for V4 Future Sports Festival

The Hungarian and Czech/Slovakian qualifiers for the V4 Future Sports Festival have come to an end, with eXtatus, Dark Tigers and GameAgents all securing spots at the Budapest event.

GameAgents, fielding former HellRaisers member Patrik "Zero" Žúdel and ex-Dead Pixels player Anders "pbD" Aidemark as stand-ins, justified their favourite status and finished in first place in the Hungarian qualifier after beating Pixel 2-0 in the final of this single-elimination bracket, which saw Hungarian/Danish mix Team123 crash out in the first round.

Meanwhile, eXtatus confirmed their credentials as one of the strongest teams in the Czech/Slovakian regional scene as they finished top two in the qualifier without dropping a single map along the way. From the opposite end of the bracket came Dark Tigers, who edged past Universe 2-1 before defeating David "KAPARZO" Lacina's Gravity on two maps to assure themselves of a top-two finish.

eXtatus qualify for the V4 Future Sports Festival

There is now just one spot up for grabs at the V4 Future Sports Festival, which will go to the winner of the Polish qualifier, featuring the likes of AGO, Kinguin and PRIDE.

With €500,000 (~$623,000) up for grabs, the V4 Future Sports Festival will run from March 23-25 at the BOK Hall indoor arena, in Budapest. The list of participants for the event currently looks as follows:

They surely will lol, VP is a dead team for sure now, losing to QBF 16:3 ffs, every players rating at the major (its a LAN, which VP are usually good at) now sucked, this means its the end of VP, + eXtatus are looking amazing. nt fakeflagger czech

Slovakia t4gg3d10year 
Its the end of VP dude, they are dogshit rn... 0-3 at the major, which is a LAN and where they usually perform incredibly well, so cant expect anything rn... Also losing to the arguably weakest team at the major QBF 16:3, just a shame.. They are also about to make roster changes, this is the last cough before they replace TaZ and maybe even some1 else, seemingly with michu. Their good luck streak at LANs has ended (ofc until they make roster changes)
2018-02-05 16:51

See, I told you, it was just obvious as TaZ was performing really poorly and michu is an up and coming talent in poland, so this means VP do have a chance at the V4 festival. Have a nice day!
2018-02-06 14:32
Yeah, he was performing bad but it seemed like they don't really give a fuck about their reputation and performance. Have a nice day too!

Looking better than they’ve been? They are so bad rn, can’t even beat dogsent, barely win against tier999 teams like alternate attax. They made it to minor but after coach change they play horribly.

Slovakia t4gg3d10year 
Altho true, but take it like this : godsent beat astralis with rubino on train, still they shouldnt have, godsent is pretty good imo, they are in the top40 range~ Alt.AttaX can actually suprise, its the team thats inconsistent imo, they won vs. North Acad. for example but lost to some random lithuanian mix I meant in the last few months they’ve been looking better, like for example nobody ever heard of eXtatus back in september (example), or at least barely any1 (they have begun their fame in october~, cant remember rn) But virtus.premier is looking like absolute dogshit, so imo eXtatus should take that match, even if its a LAN, you just saw VP at the major, got the weakest team in the 1st match, destroyed 16:3, so still, eXtatus should take it.

Why they gave 2 spots for slovakia and czech, i mean dark tigers will not do anything, it will be better if u invite team from other local, only polish, hungary, czech and slovakia. If you invite team like SK, Cloud9, G2, Navi or Gambit, this event will be hyped much better
2018-02-05 13:41
That's nice, but Hungarian goverment is investor in this case and they wish to have a tournament from local Visegrad 4 teams The only thing that sucked a dick was qualifier lol, playing on ESL 60ms servers, wire that dropped fps to 120 and that closed qualifier without upper/lower bracket LOL SSD mix with rock1ng, niki and cannie would beat the shit out of Dark Tigers as they have bot tomkeejs and Tusi didn't have a great day

What differs a local lan from Katowice or Cologne is only one thing: money. And guess what? This lan will pay MORE money than Katowice and Cologne. It means we expected WAY HIGHER standards... for example, a 12 team tournament featuring these teams: Virtus.pro AGO eXtatus Dark Tigers GameAgents HellRaisers mousesports FaZe SK cloud9 G2 Astralis Wouldn't be 10x better? A t1 lan filled with V4 teams/players.

The goal was to strenghten the V4 alliance in one more thing, plus to help smaller teams from this region. End of story. Your biggest problem is there is no SK on the lineup.

You can replace SK with any other good team, I don't care... like Na'Vi or Liquid, would be great. What triggers me is that they are literally giving free money to FaZe, it will be boring as fúck. If the right people were in control, it could be an awesome lan, instead, it will be not.
