AVANGAR came out on top of the Farmskins Championship #2 following a 2-0 victory against AGO in the grand final, securing the last spot at IEM Katowice.

A total of 20 teams took part in the tournament which had one spot at IEM Katowice on offer, with 16 of them first battling in groups for four spots in the playoffs, where four seeded teams joined in: Space Soldiers, mousesports, Natus Vincere, and BIG.

Spirit, MANS NOT HOT, AVANGAR, and Epsilon topped their respective groups and advanced to playoffs. However, Spirit then pulled out of the tournament and were replaced by Group A's second placed team, AGO.

AVANGAR qualify for IEM Katowice after topping Farmskins Championship #2

Out of the seeded teams, only mousesports were able to win their quarter-final series, with Epsilon stunning Natus Vincere 2-0 in the first round. The Kazakh-Russian side AVANGAR first took Space Soldiers by surprise with a close 2-0 victory in the quarter-finals, before taking down mousesports in the semis after a three-map battle last night. 

Earlier today it was time for the grand final between Alexey "qikert" Golubev's team and AGO, who passed BIG and Epsilon on their way to the last series. AVANGAR barely broke a sweat in the quick best-of-three, winning Train 16-5 following a dominant CT side, while on Overpass they grabbed eight rounds on each side for a 16-8, 2-0 victory, clinching the last spot at IEM Katowice.

Dude, you guys have to think and stop beeing weird. Avangar is playig good and in a good form, this doesent make them tier 2. Just like cloud 9 its not tier 1 and Gambit was never something beyond tier 2 (most of the time tier 3). Only time proves these things.

It is nosense to protect my view, but it must to be said that Borat was filmed in Hungary and by filmers from USA. By the way, filming film to attack politically is a hobby of USA. The same countries like Russia and North Korea survived the same political film attacks from america.
