Spirit, Nemiga, Syman & forZe through to CIS Minor

The upper bracket of the CIS Minor closed qualifier has been completed, with Spirit, Nemiga, Syman, and forZe advancing to the main event.

The closed qualifier began on Saturday with the opening round of the upper bracket, which saw the invited sides come out on top, with the exception of DreamEaters, who fell to Unique after a closely-contested series.

After the first round of the lower bracket was played earlier on Sunday, which most notably ended up with pro100 eliminated at the hands of Se7en, it was time for the spot-deciding series in the upper bracket quarter-finals.

forZe beat NONAME and Unique in comfortable series to make it to the CIS Minor

There, Spirit, Nemiga, and forZe came out on top of comfortable two-map series, sending Vega Squadron, Gambit Youngsters, and Unique down to the lower bracket. Meanwhile, Syman and Winstrike fought tooth and nail and exchanged the first two maps before Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy's side dealt the final blow with a one-sided victory on the decider.

The following four teams are thus through to the CIS Minor, which will take place in Berlin, Germany, on July 24-28:

The remaining four spots will be determined on Monday in the following matches:

Ukraine Vega Squadron vs. Russia DreamEaters
Russia Gambit Youngsters vs. Kazakhstan Se7en
CIS Winstrike vs. Russia Warthox
Russia Unique vs. CIS NOTBAD

Vega Gambit Winstrike Unique?
2019-06-09 23:35
forZe and Spirit will probably make it to the major. I hope Gambit Youngsters make it to the minor, but i'd bet on nemiga, Winstrike or syman to make it to the 3rd place play-in.
