Old Guys Club, Test Takers through to Americas Minor closed qualifier
The final open qualifier saw 99 participants battle their way through the single-elimination bracket, where four teams met in the best-of-three deciders for a chance to join likes of NRG, Ghost and eUnited.
Old Guys Club were the first to make it through with Sean "seang@res" Gares leading his squad of retired legendary pros, easing past Hysteria 16-5 before defeating LiViD in two maps, with Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert posting a 1.44 rating in the series.
On the other side of the bracket, Peter "ptr" Gurney's Test Takers squad cruised through their opponents, only dropping seven rounds between Dogs of War & Grizzlys, before reaching the BO3 decider against the boyz, where a close two map series earned them a closed qualifier spot.
The 16 team closed qualifier is set to kick off December 12-14, where six spots at the Americas Minor in Katowice, Poland will be up for grabs.
