FURIA have qualified for the Americas Minor leading to the FACEIT Major after defeating YeaH! 2-1 in the grand final of the South American qualifier.

The second South American open qualifier, featuring over 70 teams competing in a single-elimination bracket, saw most of the favourites reach the latter stages, with Virtue being the first big-name side to fall after being pitted against FURIA in the Round of 16.

Guilherme "spacca" Spacca's side went on to beat Isurus and Bulldozer to secure the first spot in the final. From the other side of the bracket came YeaH!, who survived a three-map thriller against Sharks in the semi-finals with former TeamOne member Caike "caike" Costa acting as a stand-in.

The grand final began on Train, the most contested of the three maps. FURIA took a 3-1 lead after losing the pistol round, but YeaH! came fighting back and took nine rounds into the second half after preventing their opponents from stringing rounds together. The second half was also a very close affair, but, in the end, YeaH! ran out victorious, with Alexandre "xand" Zizi finishing the game with a 1.50 Rating and a 101 ADR.

Next up was Inferno, which was a complete blowout. YeaH! first managed to get on the board 13 rounds into the game, but they still kept their hopes alive after taking the final three rounds of the half. FURIA would not let a comeback happen, however, and quickly wrapped things up to take the series to Mirage.

The first half of Mirage was a complete one-sided affair, with FURIA cruising to an 11-4 lead after constantly resetting YeaH!'s economy. Caio "zqkS" Fonseca's side still tried to get back in the game in the second half and twice managed to string three rounds together, but it was in vain as FURIA would eventually lock down the map.

lol theres no way they wont make it they will play mostly against NA teams to qualify, so...
2018-05-28 08:21
That's why I said if lol. They lose to Sharks all the time and Sharks went 1-3 in maps at ESL Finals so by logic they have no chance at all

Bro wtf didn’t you know you don’t need to results or wins to be top 1. Obviously if enough Argentinians spam it, then it must be true!

2018-05-28 02:39
I really like Guishorro, but Spacca is Furia's main AWPer, a role that Guishorro wouldn't fill correctly. I miss former MF/GF team, they faced actual Eunited, Torqued and other teams that are getting spots in DH and low priority tournaments, and won against these teams several times
