Se7en and Ambush qualify for ECS Season 8 Europe Pinnacle Cup

Se7en and Ambush have successfully qualified for the ECS Season 8 Europe Pinnacle Cup following victories over paryvodnikov and Fierce, respectively.

Ambush and Se7en are the first two squads to qualify for the European version of the ECS Season 8 Pinnacle Cup, having successfully traversed the first 1024 slot open qualifier. Initially, both teams battled through best-of-one match-ups, succeeded by fruitful best-of-3 playoff performances that yielded them qualification.

refrezh and company have booked a spot in the ECS S8 EU Pinnacle Cup

Upon reaching the quarter-finals, Se7en secured a 2-0 victory against struggletony, subsequently facing off against paryvodnikov for a spot in the Pinnacle Cup. The deciding series kicked off on Train, where Alikhan "w1nt3r" Kopzhanov and company opened up with a dominant T performance at 10-5. The opposition was nearly able to bring it back in the latter half, but a last-minute resurgence meant a 16-13 conclusion in favour of the Kazakh squad.

Dust2 saw a similar dynamic, in that a 9-6 showing on the offense was followed up with slightly less convincing CT half that saw a last-minute sprint to the finish line with another 16-13 scoreline.

Meanwhile, Ambush ensured participation in the ECS Season 8 Pinnacle Cup having defeated Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas's Aristocracy with a 2-1 scoreline, followed by a deciding series against Fierce, that also saw all three maps played out. The initial map, Mirage, saw the European mix team walk away with a 16-11 victory. The Danish quintet held composure on map two, Train, despite an initial 5-10 deficit, ensuring overtime in the latter half. Three overtimes later, Ismail "refrezh" Ali and company extended the series to map three at 25-21.

Overpass finalised affairs, and contrary to previous maps was lop-sided in favour of the Danes. A confident 13-2 defence was succeeded by a consecutive pistol round, concluding the third map with a brief 16-3 score.

Why would u feel bad lol, if optic had to qualify for this, they would have never done it, trust me, even though ambush players are nonamers, they are better than Optic xdddddddd
2019-08-16 01:29
yeah thats why the literally qualified for ESL one new york a week ago lmfao
2019-08-16 07:42
They're still trash tho lmao
2019-08-16 14:44
almost as trash as nordavind lmfaooo
2019-08-16 14:44
Where were Nordavind mentioned here??? Did I hurt your feelings mate? Want a tissue? ;/
2019-08-16 14:45
Your talking about Optic in an unrelated match page im talking about nordavind in an unrelated match page, i know its hard being norwegian and fucking irrelevant but c'mon xDD
2019-08-16 14:47
Mate your arguments are wack lmfao. I'm pretty sure he used to play for Optic so it is related since the article used him as a picture. I said I feel bad for him getting kicked and that guy had a good point. Optic are fucking trash, deal with it. However nowhere did someone mention Nordavind or Norway, so good job. You played yourself. Sit down and take this L, clown.
2019-08-16 14:50
hahaha delusional kid, the guy literally said Optic wouldnt be able to qualify for this tier 5 dogshit when they literally qualified for a t1 event a week ago, apparently this was enough to trigger your sensitive feelings. You lose by default for being norwegian, stfu clown
2019-08-16 14:52
Like I said fam. Take this L and move on. Optic and their lineup in general have been irrelevant for more than a year already. They're barely top 20 in the world. And wow they qualified from an invitational with teams such as Bpro, Winstrike, forZe and BIG. Literally no name teams. How the mighty have fallen :D:DD:D
2019-08-16 14:54
hahaha holy shit ur retarded. Optic is doing better than they have been for years, they literally won DH open summer, qualified for DH Malmö and ESL NY and are in both the EPL and ECS seasons (you know ECS is what these teams are trying to qualify to through the tournament that they are trying to qualify to here right ? xDDD) Oh and calling teams such as forze, avangar, winstrike and hellraisers noname teams when they are far better than any norwegian during the last 6 years lmfao, all these teams are atleast participating in the major. "hOw ThE MigHtY HaVe FaLlEn" is that the voices in ur head telling u that, did i claim they are the best team in the world or something? get bodied kid
2019-08-16 14:59
Also nordavind literally tried to qualify for this and failed, so how are they not relevant?
2019-08-16 14:52
Mate LMAO, I don't care about Nordavind LOL??? Why are you mentioning them, are you obsessed with them or something?
2019-08-16 14:55
I just claimed they're trash which objectively is very accurate i dunno why that triggers u so much ?
2019-08-16 15:00
Pretty sure I just told you I don't care about them or anything, but you keep mentioning them like it has something to do with it?? You're the one getting triggered over by my comment and replying to them all the time like a fucking clown lmfao. Take this L and move on. Hallooo? Can't comprehend basic sentences? Maybe they should teach you something useful in your efterskole :D:D
2019-08-16 15:03
sure you care so little you keep replying to me hahah. Lets not forget ur the 1 who started replying to me not the other way. Just get over the fact that denmark literally have 6 teams better than norways best team. Expected from a norwegian fjeldabe not to understand basic english tho
2019-08-16 15:06
Oh and if you think calling me a kid is an insult, you should straight up visit your local doctor and seek special medical help. In fact, I bet I'm older than your underdeveloped neurone lacking brain.
2019-08-16 15:07
hahaha norwegians are so fragile and sensitive lmfaooo, you bet your older than me wow thats cool i bet im taller and stronger than you xDDD
2019-08-16 15:07
The only strong thing you've got is delusion. It's incredibly strong. I can bench press, squat and deadlift your inbred 50kg body any day of the week. Get a job. Stop bothering random people with stupid useless things lmfao. Oh and learn basic fucking english and how to differentiate "your" from "you're"
2019-08-16 15:11
haha for some1 who took it so much to heart being called a kid you argue like a fucking 5 YO. Also it surely sounds like you're" projecting here hahahaha you norwegian pussies have always been weak both mentally and physically tho, so not unexpected at all. get rekt kid
