Orgless and Yeah secure final Americas Minor NA closed qualifier spots

Orgless and Yeah have earned the last two slots in the North American closed qualifier for the Americas Minor after topping the final open bracket.

Pujan "FNS" Mehta's Orgless squad prevailed in their fourth attempt to qualify, fighting their way past New England Whalers and Faint to set up a clash against Big Frames for a spot in the closed stage. There, the trio of Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik, Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker, and Gage "Infinite" Green combined to help their side to wins on Nuke and Inferno to take the series 2-0.

Orgless secured qualification in their fourth open qualifier attempt

Meanwhile, the Brazilian side of Yeah attained permission to compete in the final qualifier after they were ruled out of the third open bracket because they had not requested to play in the region in advance.

Rodrigo "RCF" Figueiredo and company made short work of their opponents early on in the bracket to set up a best-of-three bout against Recon 5. Yeah opened the series with a 16-13 win on Inferno, but found themselves on the losing side of a thirty-round affair on their own pick of Train before they were able to take the decider, Dust2, 16-5.

The final team list for the North American closed qualifier looks as follows:

The NA closed qualifier will run from March 6-8, utilizing a double-elimination, best-of-three bracket to determine six teams that will advance to the Americas Minor for the ESL One Rio Major.

I'm hoping they get in for sure, but if they do an org will pick them up just for the Major spot alone... so it'd be under a yet to be determined org.... Orgless to qualify for major and get bought by TSM?

Wdym there should be less spots from the Minor to the Major, but not in the Closed Qualifier. And yes the EU Closed Qualifier is way more stacked than the NA one, but your point of view is biased in saying that EU teams are better known than NA teams bcz u live in EU.
2020-02-14 12:00
Yeah everyone know teams like Ze Pug Godz etc lmao

My biggest question is what's the point of qualifying if you have a player in the team who has a lifetime ban from Valve sponsored event?
