DETONA to ESL Pro League S9 Americas over Sharks

In the grand final of the ESL Pro League S9 LatAm South Closed Qualifier, DETONA defeated Sharks 3-1 (1-0, 12-16, Train, 16-11 Mirage, 16-10 Inferno) to qualify for ESL Pro League S9 Americas.

The ESL Pro League Season 9 LatAM South Closed qualifier featured four teams, DETONA, Sharks, paiN and All Knights. DETONA and Sharks met in the intial game of the BO3 double-elimination bracket, where DETONA was victorious 2-1, before going on to meet again the BO5 grand final, where DETONA had a 1-0 start.

Sharks will miss out from the tournament after attending EPL Finals in seasons 7 and 8

The series started on Train, where Sharks were down 12-5 after struggling to gain momentum on the T side and losing the CT pistol. However, when they got rifles in their hands, they were perfect, stringing together 11 rounds straight to win the map 16-12, Renato "⁠nak⁠" Nakano leading the way with 28 frags.

Moving onto Mirage, Sharks had a solid first half, 9-6 as CT, but only mustered two sporadic rounds on the offensive side, allowing DETONA to take the map 16-11. The action then moved to Inferno, where we saw a balanced CT-T side in the first half as DETONA finished the defensive side with a minimal, 8-7 lead. However, after the switch, they put pressure on Sharks, and with Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira having an inspired performance, closed out the map, 16-10, and took the series.

He was not competing when was vac banned
2019-03-18 19:26
lmao he got vac when he was 12 and people are complaining about him because of his childhood mistakes
2019-03-18 20:02
Think about all the childs that ruined my good games, i think it is a well deserved lesson. Maybe 2 years out of competitive might teach the kids a important lesson in the future

The fact that the Latam teams compite each other has no sense. But anyways very Ez for ISURUS Ezurus.
2019-03-18 12:25
It does make sense though, it secures a spot in te EPL Finals for Latam and gives the possibility for two more spots

They would have the same posibility competing against the na teams, yeah there wouldnt bee the only guaranted spot that there is now for the latams teams (only the first has a guaranted spot in finals), but competing agains all the other teams would be more fair.
