Space Soldiers and BIG through to ESL One Belo Horizonte

April 14th, 2018 20:18

Two teams have made it through to ESL One Belo Horizonte from the European qualifiers: Space Soldiers, through the upper bracket, and BIG, through the lower bracket.

The first out of the two teams to earn their ticket to Belo Horizonte was Space Soldiers, who made it to the final of the qualifier through the upper bracket by beating Envy, North, and Gambit, dropping a single map in the first round of the qualifier before winning the other two matches by 2-0.

This marks another successful qualifier for the Turkish team, which has in the recent past made it to DreamHack Masters Marseille, IEM Sydney, and now ESL One Belo Horizonte, all through qualifiers.

Space Soldiers qualified for yet another event

The second team to make it through the qualifier to Belo Horizonte is BIG. The German team took a little bit of a harder route than Space Soldiers, by going through the losers' bracket. The Germans started out winning against Quantum Bellator Fire, but were then taken knocked out of the upper bracket by Gambit.

After beating Envy and winning the derby against ALTERNATE aTTaX, BIG took revenge on Gambit in two maps, earning a spot to ESL One Belo Horizonte.

BIG took revenge on Gambit for a spot in Brazil

With four teams already invited, and the two aforementioned teams from the European qualifier, there are just two more spots left for the $200,000 tournament in Brazil which will be handed to the winners of the North American and South American qualifiers. The full list as of now is:

Europe FaZe North America Liquid
Brazil SK Europe mousesports
Turkey Space Soldiers Germany BIG
North America NA Qualifier Other SA Qualifier

when you get both pistol rounds you usually win, you know. this isn't chess; anyone in top 20 has a chance against another.

sorry but no chance vs mouz. SS is still not good enough. And this isnt online

I disagree. space is actually just as skilled as mouz and they have been showing sick tactics on both cache and cobble meaning everything could happen. It all depends on the 3rd map.

I do. Just saying its hard. But its not only gambit. The whole cs pro scene is a disgrace. It seems like they are all spoiled by the big money and don’t have the hunger to make an effort.
