AVANGAR qualify for StarSeries i-League Season 5

AVANGAR have won the StarSeries i-League Season 5 CIS qualifier, locking their spot at the $300,000 tournament taking place at the brink of May and June.

The qualifier began on April 20, with eight teams first battling in two GSL groups. forZe and FlipSid3 topped their respective groups, with EPG and GoodJob making it through to the playoffs from the second place, while Vega Squadron surprisingly exited the competition.

The aforementioned four teams joined four direct invites, Gambit, Quantum Bellator Fire, Spirit, and AVANGAR in the single-elimination, best-of-three playoffs. 

AVANGAR advance to StarSeries

Alexey "qikert" Golubev & co. cruised past FlipSid3 and Spirit in the first two rounds, while Gambit defeated EPG and Quantum Bellator Fire with relative ease to advance to the grand final.

AVANGAR continued to show impressive form, beating Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev's team 2-0; 16-4 on Train and 16-12 on Mirage after dominant first halves to advance to StarSeries i-League Season 5.

Happy for them. At the majors there were many new CIS teams and even though Avangar didn't make it to the main event they developed the best over the past months. Clearly outperforming Qbf, Vega and slowly Gambit, too.

qbf did the biggest fluke

Gambit is going down with seized as igl... they need some genuine leadership, seized still might be ok as a support player, but not as igl

Let's see ☺. I still believe they can show their potential as a top team😉
2018-05-09 02:38
Dude, I hope they will! But there's a persistent evidence that seized is not the optimal igl. Look: with same players in Gambit Zeus was able to win minor & major; with mostly same players in NaVi Zeus has climbed to top5. I don't know the inside, but my guess is that siezed is not a bad strat caller, but lacks leadership qualities.

I still bought some Gambit merch, they'll come back to form one day.
