Team list for ECS Season 5 NA Closed Qualifier finalized

Sixteen teams have secured their spots in the North American Closed qualifier for the ECS Challenge Cup, which will take place this week.

The first stage of qualifiers for ECS Season 5 in North America has been brought to an end, as four open qualifiers have been played out. Four best teams from each open qualifier earned spots in the closed qualifier, leaving us with a total of 16 teams in competition for four spots at the ECS Challenge Cup.

FNS's new team, compLexity, made the closed qualifier

Two notable teams made through the first qualifier, namely Splyce and Complexity, while three MDL S26 Global Challenge LAN participants qualified through the second one: Rogue, Rise Nation and Dignitas (formerly SoaR). 

Bravado, who just recently made the jump across the Atlantic, also made the Closed Qualifier, as did Mythic, now featuring James "⁠hazed⁠" Cobb, and the Brazilian side TeamOne.

You can find the full list of teams for the Closed Qualifier below:

United States 2K United States Splyce
United States F1-racecar-PEEK North America Complexity
United States Etherian United States Dignitas
United States Rogue United States Rise Nation
United States Mask Off South Africa Bravado
United States Wise United States Mythic
United States BlackOut United States Iceberg
Brazil TeamOne United States LFAO

The format for the competition, that will take place on February 16-18, was not confirmed at this point, however, it is known that the four best teams from the Closed Qualifier earn spots at the Challenge Cup.

There, qualified teams will take on ECS S4 relegated teams Immortals (who currently don't have a roster) and Ghost, as well as two invited teams for two spots in ECS Season 5.

I guess torqued didn't make it in due to not having a roster to go through the qualifier? Teams like splice and complexity are far better but I think some more competition would be good
