paiN, RED Canids qualify for WESG Brazil LAN Finals
Six teams were invited directly to the qualifier while TeamOne and Yeah had to fight for their place in it, with DETONA, ranked #61 in the world, being the favorite for securing one of the two LAN spots. However, Vinicius "vsm" Moreira and co. suffered a first-round defeat to qualifier team Yeah (25-23 Dust2, 16-14 Train), ending their WESG campaign early.
In the semi-finals, TeamOne, who recently added João "felps" Vasconcellos on a loan deal from MIBR, took on RED Canids, another team that underwent a change in the offseason, adding Lucas "DeStiNy" Bullo.
RED Canids managed to secure the series victory after edging out a marathon Mirage, a one-sided Nuke loss, and finally a win on Train to advance to the offline portion of the qualifier over TeamOne, despite strong efforts from felps and Alencar "trk" Rossato.

After eliminating DETONA, Yeah were looking to add another BO3 win over paiN to complete their upset run and make it to the LAN. They started well, taking Mirage 16-7, but paiN were in control for the majority of the other two maps, taking a 2-1 win and a spot at the LAN.
