Valiance and x-kom through to Europe Minor closed qualifier

Valiance and x-kom have locked their spots in the Europe Minor closed qualifier after topping the third open qualifier.

Surviving the first five rounds of play in the third open qualifier, some of the most notable teams who took part in the qualifier made it to day two, such as Red Reserve, AGO, Vitality, and the new lineup of Valiance.

In the quarter-finals, the aforementioned Poles went on to lose to expert, while Vitality could not make it past Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas & co., which pitted Valiance up against the German side in the spot decider.

Goofy & co. are through to the closed qualifier

There, the European mixture came out on top 2-0 to secure the first spot in the closed qualifier. On the other side, Red Reserve went up against x-kom for the second spot and, after a tough battle on the third map, the Poles prevailed in overtime of Mirage to lock down the series.

The team list of the Europe Minor closed qualifier now looks as follows:

The last open qualifier will take place on November 24-25; teams can sign up on ESEA here.

The finalist of the tournament got rekt by giants 16:9 but havu Just had a much better game plan and map pool than giants who are a 2 month team with not much time to practice because they had to travel to spain every week so they could play on spanish League but i hope your opinion about them will change in 1/2 month bro sometimes it takes time for a team to work look at ldlc they were shit for months and now they are looking really good
2018-11-11 23:37
My point is it's a t3-6 tournament there. If they can win those how do they expect to even make it to mdl league.

They Just had a bad Day they dont have map pool to win bo3 against havu so Nuke was free win for havu and overpass game was Just a trow they had so many rounds with Man advantage that they trowed it was Just really bad and they tilt and loose but it was their first international lan give them until the end of the here to practice and I am sure they will impress you, players like rmn killdream mutiris and Fox are players that Can fight against tier 2 teams Just rizz is really inexperienced and need time to grow and adapt to their level right now they are playing a lot and they are really talented and Hard working people they Just need time to be more stable cause right now they are still not ready for even tier 3 teams at least on a bo3 a bo1 they Can win

Hahahaahhahahaah Gigants need stay with Fox mutt and pick 3 young players not this shit old k1ck lineup
2018-11-12 01:11
Rizz is a new guy and i think he is doing very well actually If i had to take someone out it would be maybe killdream for zelin but i believe this lineup can get good results just give them time
2018-11-12 01:33
Bro rmn and killdream are almost in the same level as mutiris plus portugal doesnt have any good young talent maybe the best one is stadodo but still for him rizz its better because he plays much better at lan and he fits better role wise zelin is amazing but to lurk we already have killdream
2018-11-12 09:44
Dude, they just got absolutely destroyed by HAVU who I would say is team that is extremely unlikely to qualify vs teams such as LDLC and Vitality, tells enough about Giants level, probably lose to some low noobs ro64 or some shit :D...

Oh, didn't even notice that when it comes to RR. I hope they manage to qualify in the last one tho, they desverve it imo +1, vitality is an overhyped trash, only Zywoo is good (+maybe apex?) but overall this team wont succeed

he shooted to bait 2 guys from palace, so ninja guy could easily kill them
2018-11-11 23:12
If that was remotely true, why don't the guy in ninja look towards palace? Clearly what you said isn't true.

well, no one was watching ramp and you can see T's running towards site/sandwich, also look on jungle guy, he was watching if they're pushing stairs
2018-11-11 23:55
Still if you expect someone to be baited out of palace you would look palace. Stop defending him just because he is from poland.

here is your cheater, look on this clip and watch, he also shooted before to bait them clips.twitch.tv/SavoryFairQuailWoofer 6s
2018-11-12 00:17
Your logic is so wack. Just because he already shot there once, it should make sense that he shoots there? they know that one is very close to go out, so why wouldn't he wait for him? and again why aren't the guy in ninja looking at palace when he knows that his mate tries to bait him out? Wake up, this isn't the first time we have seen fishy clips of oskarish.
