EU Minor Open Qualifier 1 day one concluded; top 16 teams found

From over 400 teams competing for two Closed Qualifier spots, the list has been narrowed down to 16 teams which will continue their battle tomorrow.

While the eight teams invited to the Closed Qualifier have been announced and include the likes of fnatic, mousesports, and North on the list, eight more teams will join them through the Open Qualifiers as they search for a path to the Major and international recognition.

Virtus.pro are one of the five Polish sides to reach day two

The following teams reached the second day of the Europe Minor Open Qualifier 1:

17:41 byali giving another MIKSTURA a shot

Following his exit from Virtus.pro, Paweł "byali" Bieliński has created a new version of MIKSTURA. Last time around, while being on the bench of Virtus.pro, the Pole led his side to the IEM Katowice Minor Closed Qualifier, and will try to do so again with Konrad "EXUS" Jeńczeń, Tomasz "ToM223" Richter, Michał "Czapel" Czapla, and Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak along his side.

The Poles are likely to meet against Danish mix "-D-D-D" in the next round, featuring AcilioN, Michael "Friis" Jørgensen, and Rasmus "SandeN" Sanden.

17:33 ex-Space Soldiers complete roster with youngsters

Engin "ngiN" Kor and Ahmet "paz" Karahoca are competing in the qualifier as Turkey5, however, without Buğra "Calyx" Arkın. The three remaining players in the squad are Ömer "imoRR" Karataş, "eneshan", and "hNNN-".

17:15 Bracket drawn, lack of seeding riles players

The 512-team bracket for the Open Qualifier has been drawn and is available here. Certain players, such as Tricked's Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen and x-kom's Paweł "innocent" Mocek, have already taken to Twitter to express their unhappiness about the matter.

They didn't earn money on bets, they just threw for better seeding. Not the same as iBP
2019-05-25 18:56
So the point isnt the matchfixing itself but earn money?
2019-05-25 20:44
nothing is wrong with not trying to win a match for better seedings even pro football teams do that shit all the time and no one punishes them
2019-05-26 02:45

you dont have to seed all the teams. just top 30-50 or whatever (the ones that have been highlighted by HLTV + some for example) so they dont face each other in early rounds... now top 16 will look fairly weak

which is exactly why seeding is good. now if good teams face each other theres only 1 team that needs to be upset instead of 2. look at how Katowice Open Qualifier 1 looked with some seeding and how the current one is shaping up. even worse considering lower round games are generally not streamed so if you want to watch you will get to see lower quality games too

rip device rekt by valve twitter.com/dev1ce/status/68333282193978.. As of today I am changing my nick to "devve". The change comes as a natural one to me, having been called devve by both friends and team-members since I was 14 years old. The first time you'll see me with the new name ingame, will be at SLTV in Minsk later this month. As a consequence of the nick change, my new Twitter-alias will be "@devveCS".

“Another big upset was LDLC losing to Polish side DENZAAAA 16-12 thanks to Marcin "Shatar" Lubowicki's 32-14 K-D game, and another French side, ex-3DMAX, also fell to a underdog, RS-_-.“ That’s not an upset, LDLC are really just that bad.
