Space Soldiers seal first EU place at Pro League S7 Finals

Space Soldiers are the first European team to secure a spot at the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals after winning Wednesday's fixtures.

The Turkish side breezed past HellRaisers 16-8 and 16-6 to improve their record to 16-6 in the league and assure themselves of a spot at the season finals, which will be held in Dallas next month, with four matches left to play for them.

It comes as a huge boost for Space Soldiers, who will be in attendance at DreamHack Masters Marseille next week, where they will hope to build on their recent runner-up finish at the WESG World Finals.

Space Soldiers make the finals in their first Pro League season

Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli's side are the third confirmed team for the event, following in the footsteps of NRG and Liquid, who currently occupy the top two places in the North American division and also have qualification in the bag.

Europe will have an extra qualifying spot at the Pro League Finals when compared to previous seasons as a result of the event's expansion from 12 to 16 teams. The recently-created Asia-Pacific division will have two qualifying spots, while the final place will go to the winner of the ESL Latin America League.

The ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals will run from May 14-20, with two quarter-finals, the semi-finals and the title decider being played at the Verizon Theatre. The team list for the event currently looks as follows:

Turkey Space Soldiers North America Liquid
Europe Europe #2 United States NRG
Europe Europe #3 North America North America #3
Europe Europe #4 North America North America #4

Tier 2 is better than tier 99 which SS were like 2 years ago xd

2018-04-12 12:41
they improved a lot man ....last year they play bad on lan but let's wait to see them if they do something this year......we need new teams to achieve something :D
2018-04-12 12:42
so please tell me wich teams are tier1 if you consider exist performance if ss tier2?
2018-04-12 15:08
mouz & fnatic, maybe faze
2018-04-12 16:26
you should check their lan stats kiddo
2018-04-12 12:09
Any tier1 achievements? No? Then fuck off
2018-04-12 12:10
because they dont get invites and they couldnt attend them in 2017 because they were bad on online
2018-04-12 12:16
Proves my point. If they succeed in Marseille and EPL I'll consider them a good team.
2018-04-12 12:22
Either way they are the surprise of this season, next season everyone will know them and their playstyle. If they can stay in top for more than a season we can talk about them being tier1

if you are tier 2, that means you always have the potential to upset t1 teams & improve to t1. nobodys saying they are best of the best but they are not to underestimate thats for sure. they have been in the scene for almost 3 years now, finally their work is paying off, attending to tier1 lans and tournaments,almost getting legend status in major etc. no need to diss them, just give them the credit they deserve.

their best performance was the major wut i don't mean to say ss is tier1 (they are top 10-13 and that's where they will be for a while imo) but they aren't onliners, if anything they'd be the exact opposite as they manage to lose to tier3 teams on online quals

They have not participated in a LAN tournament since the major tournament. They didn't have enough power in the major tournament. In spite of that, they beat the team like the last champion C9. Pro League S7 Fınals, DreamHack Masters and IEM Sydney tournaments will be good for them.
