Europe Minor closed qualifier invites revealed

StarLadder has announced the invites to the closed qualifiers for the European Minor.

A total of 16 teams will be fighting in the closed qualifier, held on June 10-12, with eight coming from a series of open qualifiers and the other half receiving direct invites.

The list of invitees features several big names, some of whom fell to the Minor system after placing outside of the top-14 of IEM Katowice, including BIG and fnatic.

Currently ranked sixth in the world, fnatic headline the list of invitees for the Europe Minor closed qualifier

Others return following an unsuccessful campaign in the run-up to the last Major, with three Danish sides North, OpTic, and Heroic joining the aforementioned two squads alongside Windigo, Valiance, and mousesports.

The full list of teams invited to the Europe Minor closed qualifier, all of whom currently reside in the top 30 of our World Ranking, looks as follows:

2019-05-12 19:12
ex-devils.one (old kinguin with taz) & frenchfrogs (ex 3dmax) will probably make it. giants suck so much in these open qualifiers. iirc last time they didn't make top16 once in open qualifiers which is when HLTV starts featuring matches.

HR still have DeadFox on contract. They can pull a C9 last major. I guess that's why their coach doesn't use TOs as of now, so players get used to play on their own again.
2019-05-12 16:31

 | 
Spain G3CK0 
The new rulebook states that teams can't use the coach unless there is an unexpected and irreplaceable injury/illness or any other type of issue (visa issue for example)

OK, they can just use him instead of lowel or nukkye anyway, it's worse, but he can play a second awper instead of nukkye to some degree.

Why are you lying? "I'm just asking here if someone knows" -You "WHERE ARE THE TICKETS???" -you First of all you asked where are the tickets on the minor qualifier, how are we supposed to know you mean the major. And know you are butthurt and crying cuz i asked you a normal question.

It was obvious I was taliking about the major? since when there are tickets for closed qualifiers which are online? And I'm just amazed how you can't understand such a simple thing

NO it wasn't obvious. And i never said there were tickets for closed qualifier so you are lying again. "And I'm just amazed how you can't understand such a simple thing" How are we supposed to understand you mean the major when there are tonns of other tournaments you might mean. Also stop crying and raging like a little baby.

I asked in a post RELATED TO THE MAJOR so I'm how am I supposed to talk about another tournament? And stop saying I'm lying and crying just because you don't know what to say. After this I won't reply again and waste my time to explain a simple thing which YOU don't understand. Bye bye, moron.

Lmfao They deserved the invite more than Valience though
2019-05-12 14:46
New HR has done nothing that great so far, I do not think they deserved invite honestly. Seems invites were made based on ranking anyway so tough for HR to get one being such new lineup.

Ehm HR still has their major spot, since Deadfox is still a part of the roster. They will just swap some player with Deadfox and attend it anyway.. Edit: Or, they will put someone as a coach, and swap him with Deadfox..
2019-05-12 15:17
They will do a C9 very probably

Fnatic, North, Mouz and maybe BUG 2 of them will qualify
2019-05-12 14:22
I was wondering how many teams will participate to the main qualifier since 16 teams are expected - 10 teams through Europe Asia Americas CIS and Minor play in with each two - 4 teams and not 6 from last major (Vitality, G2, Avangar and Complexity) since C9 and Hellraisers have changed roster So what about the two remaining spots?

2019-05-12 17:21
Nope, there are plenty of teams which achieved more since last major, like 6 of the ones invited, apart from Optic and Heroic though, but they are both ranked much higher than VP, so it would have been weird to invite VP instead of them anyway...
2019-05-12 18:44

so even if you made into 1 of 4 open Q hell - still 0.1 % chances in closed qualifier xD

So stacked lol, imagine how stacked eu minor will be
2019-05-12 15:57
probably around the same as these 8 invites. there are more teams that can upset but i wouldnt call them stronger (ex devils.one, vp, ago, nordavind, sprout, movistar, nochance, frenchfrogs, attax, tricked, epsilon, gamerlegion, havu, chaos, ancient)
2019-05-12 16:19
Once again, this minor has become so fucking difficult
2019-05-12 16:03
Since there are only 4 teams left (after Hellraisers and Cloud9 lost their spots) and after minors will come next 10 teams (EU, CIS, Asia, NA, Play-in), we have only 14 teams in Closed Qualifier. How the last two spots will be given?
2019-05-12 16:17
hellraisers still has ange1, issaa and deadfox on bench. they can play with deadfox or have him as player and replace with a "coach". the same way C9 did with zellsis/golden. as for C9 their spot will probably be given to NA minor (unless rules have changed since then I'm not sure). it happened in the past (I think it was envyus) and the extra spot was given in the minor. hltv.org/events/2723/europe-minor-pgl-ma..

everybody complains about how stacked the eu minor is, but all you have to look at is the number of eu teams that finished top16/14 each major: cluj: 10 columbus: 8 cologne: 9 atlanta: 10 krakow: 9 boston: 9 london: 6 katowice: 6 eu lost 3 spots in london, now #7+8 have to battle in the minor, so of course it's more stacked. and that's where they belong - you suck at the major, you go to the minor.

Insane is exactly the wording I was about to use as well. But on the other hand, I wonder if EU is actually heavily overrated. Because if these teams were actually as good as we think they are, then why did they get knocked out by NA/CIS/Asia?
