ECS Season 5 Europe Closed Qualifier team list finalized

The team list for the European ECS Season 5 closed qualifier has been determined, with 16 teams set to battle it out this weekend.

After a total of eight qualifiers, including one for CIS teams, the best two squads from each have assured themselves a place in the closed qualifier, which will take place on February 17-18.

Just like in North America, this stage of the qualifying process will hand out four spots for the ECS Challenger Cup, where teams will then try to book one of the two available positions in the next season of the league.

AGO are one of the top contenders in the closed qualifier

From the CIS region, EPG and DreamEaters secured their spot in the closed qualifier, while LPSP and MANS NOT HOT were the ones who prevailed in Northern Europe. Representing Western/Central Europe are AGO and Sprout, who fairly easily grabbed the top two placings in the qualifier.

As for the South East Europe qualifier, x6tence and Windigo qualified over the likes of Valiance and Nexus, although both later managed to qualify in the first and third European qualifiers, respectively.

Below you can find the full team list for the Closed Qualifier:

Russia EPG Russia DreamEaters
Denmark LPSP Europe MANS NOT HOT
Poland AGO Germany Sprout
Spain x6tence Bulgaria Windigo
Lithuania Refuse Serbia Valiance
Germany ALTERNATE aTTaX Denmark Fragsters
Slovakia eXtatus Romania Nexus
France Limitless Europe TinderklubeN

After this stage, the top four squads will join GODSENT, Heroic and two invited sides in the ECS Season 5 Europe Challenger Cup, which will run on March 10-11.

Awesome

Valiance is better than all these 3 teams LYL
2018-02-15 15:13
? Vega and qbf would SHIT on these tier 3 NO NAMERS even avangar would beat them if buster only had to buy a deagle for 16 straight rounds. Ripsid3 would lose to all fo them though since noob blade is still igl

Germany Aquintus 
Yeah, they are probably going to make it. After them, extatus, windigo, mans not hot and fragsters have the best chances to move on

Dobro, ako mislis da je to sto godinu dana stede taktike za major oznaka dibrog tima
2018-02-16 14:57
Cis hater, oh wait a sek u from na, sorry
2018-02-15 23:28
They are second rate orgs with 3rd rate players.
2018-02-16 00:40
3rd rate players on major?
2018-02-17 09:22
they make it every year. Flipside for example. Sprout really did fuck all. Only teams out this event to support are AGO and Windigo.
2018-02-17 12:16
But vega defeat many of 1st rate players for example. Qbf comeback over mouz? Or u want to say that it is luck?
2018-02-17 15:52
qbf comeback was luck. Mouz is actually a tier 1 team when they dont choke. and vega just got fucked on lan at cs summit. But vega and qbf arent the issue here, the issue are these ACTUAL tier 3 shitters. Plus qbf avangar and vega would beat any of these teams. There is a difference between tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3. Anyone can get lucky in a b01. But bo3s are where u see a teams real skill..

2018-02-15 22:59
In Boston major quals they had: Aaron - hltv Bzt - hltv reactioN2733 - reactioN in hltv crk - crk690 in hltv SzarvasMarha - hltv But they had team name Tinderkluben tho.
2018-02-15 23:17
completely different lineup hmm, maybe its big mix team or smth
2018-02-15 23:18
this probably was a mix team, but in boston quals all my mentioned players were from Hungary.

None of these teams are ECS worthy except MAYBE AGO. Rest are Tier 3/4/5

+1 It will probably end in Heroic re-qualifying and Godsent getting replaced by AGO or one of the invited teams.

2018-02-15 16:38
Team that rekt Avangar in round 1 was obvoiusly cheaters, who after that forfeited their second game by "issues", that weren't told to mass media. If they weren't there Avangar would win the whole shit, because they were the best team in CIS quals.
