W7M, Isurus to ESL LA League S3 Finals

With the culmination of ESL Latin America League S3 - Brazil, Isurus and W7M have earned spots at the $10,660 ESL LA League S3 LAN Finals.

The four-team LAN will take place on March 2-3 in São Paulo, with two spots for the ESL Pro League Season 9 Americas up for grabs there as well, making the tournament a highly-important one for teams in Latin America.

The Brazilian portion of the competition featured eight teams split into two groups, with Minor participants Imperial not able to make it to the four-team playoffs, and instead W7M, DETONA, Sharks, and the Argentinians Isurus making the semi-finals.

Noktse was crucial to Isurus upsetting Sharks

In the first match that decided who would earn a spot at the ESL LA League S3 Finals, W7M took on DETONA. DETONA's map pick of Cache didn't work out for them at all, as they lost it 16-3 following a 14-1 T-side by W7M, whose Lucas "YJ" Yuji was particularly inspired (28K-6D). Inferno, that followed, was a much tighter affair, only being edged out by W7M after multiple overtimes, 25-22, securing the favorites a spot at the ESL LA League S3 Finals.

Isurus (#190 in the ranking) were a big underdog heading into the series against Sharks (#25), but started off the series by shocking their opponents on their map pick, Train. After a dominant CT side (12-3), they quickly closed out the map 16-4 to take a lead in the series. Dust2 then followed, where following an unimpressive Terrorist half, winning only five rounds, Isurus managed to come back and win on the defensive side, 16-12, as Nicolás "Noktse" Dávila put in a great performance with 101.5 ADR.

2019-02-09 12:53
Lol. They threw vs W7M for 2 brazil spots and then lost to isurus xDD
2019-02-09 12:57
Didn't watch the match but I highly doubt they threw against w7m, cuz Isurus was pretty close to beat them in the past, and they were on a better form at that time, I meant it would be just dumb from them

You even watch this scene? because until december 2k18 before the change in isuru's and ex-wild's rosters the three best teams in Sa (beside sharks) were Wild, Imperial and Isurus, W7m was no even close of any of those three teams. They improve at this moment

It's the SA level, super low. When they were good, they had arrived from EU. They need to spend time there again and comeback and kick all asses.

Very funny. Isurus can qualify thru Brazil's qualifier but Brazilians team cannot play in Southern Cone an South Latin America qualifiers LUL
2019-02-09 13:38
tell sharks to move to argentina then so they can get to lan without playing good teams then

It's not like south Brazil isn't Southern Cone. I'm talking about teams from there. They should have the right to participate as well. I cannot say anything about sharks, sometimes they're in Brazil, then, of a sudden, months on Europe.
2019-02-09 14:16
Isurus players are living in BR, that's why they can play.

I would agree with you, but they have a quallifier to South Latin America? Isn't that also the Southern Cone. And Brazil is bigger and has more teams than the Southern Cone.

Go back to Portugal and stay there, Sharks
2019-02-09 17:02
Argentina deserve their spot at the final. Besides, it will be even funnier to watch,since Brazil and Argentina are historically good competitors and have some rivalty. Then, this can bring some excitement and more emotion to this, after all, it is a Grand Final! GL HF!
