Camel Riders qualify for Asia Minor as Aequus forfeit decider map in protest

Camel Riders qualified for the Asia Minor as Aequus decided to forfeit the last half of the closed qualifier's grand final decider map when down 3-12 citing ESL's policy regarding server usage.

A tumultuous closed qualifier marred by technical issues regarding server locations and routing from different countries has come to an end. The final match pitted Camel Riders, who made it through the upper bracket with victories over the two Israeli teams in the qualifiers, Aequus and Finest, against former of the two, who fought through the lower bracket beating JustPassingBy, Goliath, Finest and Yalla on the road to the final.

The match started on Vertigo, Camel Riders’ pick, where they had an automatic 1-0 advantage in the series due to making their way to the final through the upper bracket. They won the first pistol round on the CT side, but were quickly on the back foot after losing the first gun round as Aequus managed to quickly take charge 3-2 before it was tied back up. The Israeli team took control of the half from thereon out on the server that favored them, only allowing the CTs to sprinkle a couple more rounds before the half, going up 10-5 at the switch.

Aequus successfully retook a B plant in the second pistol round to increase their lead to 11-5, only letting Camel Riders win a single round before Shahar "flameZ" Shushan denied Omar "JOKER" Aldaradkeh a 1vs3 clutch to get on match point, 15-6, and eventually closing the map out 16-6 to tie the series up.

Camel Riders will be present at the Asia Minor

On a Dubai server Camel Riders got off to a flying start on the CT side of Dust2, tallying nine rounds before Aequus, who had nearly 200 more ping than their adversaries, could even reply, winning the half 11-4. The second half didn’t fare much better for Aequus, who lost the pistol round to an A rush and were only able to tally one successful defense with a double spraydown by the two B defenders Lotan "Spinx" Giladi and Daniel "ponkt" Punkt in the first gun round, but were unable to hold Camel Riders back as they closed map two out, 16-5.

Aequus were able to turn a lost pistol round on the attacking side of Inferno around to go up 5-1 in what seemed would be another one-sided half, but a team effort by Camel Riders brought them back to a tie, 5-5, before a strike to the B site put Aequus ahead as they went on to win the half 9-6. The second pistol round also went the way of Aequus after a successful A retake as they were able to go on to close the map out without much opposition 16-8.

Camel Riders went up 2-0 on the defending side of Overpass, and were able to keep their lead after the first gun round thanks to a 1vs2 clutch by Yosef "Ttyke" Abdullah. Aequus were able to get on the board in the fifth round and followed it up as ponkt won a 1vs1 afterplant to make it 2-4. They then won an anti-eco, but that would be it as Camel Riders took control and closed out the half 12-3.

Finally, the Israeli team forfeited the map and match during halftime, as they didn't see any chances of winning the decider on the Dubai server, making Camel Riders the Middle East Closed Qualifier winners.

Next time use servers from turkey or russia so all the teams would have similar ping ok ESL? it's not that complicated teams playing 150-200 ping vs 5-10 ping, are they actually that out of contact with how this game works? completely pointless games

So why blame a team when this is clearly an organizational failure? ESL's to blame not whoever won.
2020-03-07 19:35
Because Aequus was clearly the better team here? Camel RIders squeezed out a win against them early on, and it's clear that they were fixing their mistakes from their first game, so they deserved to win. It's ESL's fault no doubt (too bad they've been a shitty organizer as of late) but Aequus shouldn't have had to forfeit, especially when they should have won 3-1, because Dust2 was the same story as Overpass with 200ms for Aequus.

how were they clearly better? if they were so clearly better they would have won the first matchup which gave the map adv to the riders. this is classic protesters rage.
2020-03-07 19:42
You're right, they didn't win their first match-up. But Aequus did something called learning. They smashed Camel Riders when they didn't have shitty ping, therefore I think they should have won. Although this should definitely be something towards ESL, not an argument between two NA dudes. Sorry for being a little aggressive

We're all here for the same reason (hopefully): we like CSGO. No need to argue too much.
2020-03-07 23:48
First match same deal with 190 ping advantage (free map), and a 190 ping advantage again on the decider for the first half (finished 12-3). Now from 12-3 they had to make the comeback (aequus having then 90 ping advantage), so the ping was the deciding factor as it was now. Pointless games, why even bother
2020-03-07 19:51
The admin had decided that the decider map will be played ENTIRELY on a Dubai server, not half-half.

Kinda 3rd world problems in 2020. On the other hand ESL should reinvestigate this, as this is very strange unless both parties agreed to it beforehand. I doubt that. They should play on servers with similar ping (not necessarily low, but similar). 200 ping is joke, even overseas you got less as far as i remember.

To create diversity, so you don’t have to watch the same teams play against each other all the time. Because other teams deserve the chance to prove themselves. Because this is a competitive INTERNATIONAL game which means every country should be able to qualify as long as they are good enough for the highest levels, and if not - at least be given a chance to try playing at these levels and attempt at improving themselves. I hope I didn’t fall to a very obvious bait.

I don't blame them for playing the victim card after benefiting from this for three qualifiers.. but fuck Valve, its their fault this is happening for 2 years straight just allow them to play EU or have a separated qualifier for them and jordan/leb/egypt.. fucking hell how hard can this be?
2020-03-07 20:06
Yeah, there is a reason why Israel is for example part of the UEFA and not in the arabian confederation. Let them play in EU qualifier. But I would guess they dont want to do so. The chances to qualify via 200 ping in the middle east qualifier and then the asian minor are 10 times higher then to qualify via EU qualifier and minor.
2020-03-07 20:10
Israeli teams had 190 ping advantage 3 qualifiers in a row you say? Strange considering this is from the last qualifier - gyazo.com/9cfe26cb707ff276c551efff6d1733.. hltv.org/matches/2333481/aequus-vs-nasr-.. or this FINAL game from 2018 gyazo.com/e2e7371f8c0909619269709a2e73e1.. hltv.org/matches/2323023/uniquestars-vs-..

2020-03-08 01:05
Been living and playing in the UAE scene for 4 years. From last qualifier, NASR travelled to Jordan to play the qualifier with low ping. There was a different server rule then which was like faceit server bans, so all matches were played to Germany and this is why they travelled. As for the second, they were a team based in kuwait that travelled to WeZ house in Saudi to play the qualifier. Saudi's get 70-90 ping to EU. Kuwait, bahrain and qatar is 90-110. UAE is 120-140

sounds like dubai server provider throttling israeli isps ?
2020-03-07 21:48
no, some middle east countries arent connected together with fibre lines, so the routing of israel,jordan,palenstine... (MENA countries) first routes to europe then to dubai (GCC) causing 190 ping. same for dubai to israel and also the 1st and 3rd map were played to europe(israel 60 ping, UAE 140). the 2nd map was played to dubai (israel 200 ping, uae 10 ping). for the 4th map, the first half was played on dubai (190 ping diff) and the second half was gonna be played to EU(80 ping diff). but since the first half was played on dubai and ended 12-3, aequus didnt want to play second half to EU cuz theres no points to try 12-3. so it was fair in a technicall sense but the team with low ping first half would alwas have advantage.

If the system worked like this we wouldve been happy with a 12-3 half and now normal pings. Tho pokemon said they are not gonna play it any server other then dubai . So it was just decider map full 210 ms and it was so unplayable. So we just wanted to ff and try to cause any changes in the next minor middle east qualifiers.
2020-03-08 01:49
Day before yesterday Finest managed to comeback from 3-12 to 16-14 due to server change against Atk so that's just not good aequus consider not to play and just forfeit without even trying? hltv.org/matches/2340129/finest-vs-atk-a..
2020-03-08 03:30
No, you're wrong, and that's why it was so rigged – the admin had decided that the decider map will be played ENTIRELY on the Dubai server, and not half half as it was the entire closed qualifier.
2020-03-08 08:03
it doesnt matte bro, aequus already played 2 maps with ping advantage while camel only played 1.
2020-03-08 12:09
But the first map was defaulted to Camel Riders for them having won the upper bracket, and that should have been it. Winning the upper bracket doesn't equal huge and unfair ping advantage, which equals FREE MINOR SPOT. If the entire closed qualifiers was played half-half, why not keep with it when it gets to the most critical situation? Maybe because nobody cares about this region, but these are players like any others with dreams and hopes, and there comes an unknown admin and just kills it all because of his rigged decision-making. There HAS to be a rematch under proper conditions, It's still not too late to fix it. And the community should fight for it instead of trolling and joking around, because tomorrow it can happen to anyone of you. If we won't stand for our minimal rights in esports, nobody will.

Thats not rigged lol Aequus came from the lower bracket while Camel Riders hadnt lost so they had a one map advantage, then in the 4 maps remaining Aequss got 2 with ping advantage so Camel Riders also got 2 with Ping advantage, wouldn't make sense to give disadvantage to upperbracket team lol.
2020-03-08 16:45
Every map had to be played half-half as it has been for this entire closed qualifier. You can't change the rules of the tournament DURING the tournament.

Still wasn't fair camel riders had a bit more than 100 ping at the worst but aequus 200 or a bit more makes a big difference
2020-03-08 10:24
We tried but playing with this 210 ms against players with 5ms is unplayable, you cant spray ingame cuz i will just go anywhere, movement has a big delay. Switching to weapons. And everything . I actually explained all the situation in my twitter if you are intrested in reading it @flameZcsgo
2020-03-08 01:54
200 ping difference my god ESL wtf are you doing?
2020-03-07 21:29

Basically one of the weakest out of the 8 participating teams qualifies due to narrow minded rules, while taking advantage of having advantageous routing to the optional servers. WP ESL, and a shame we won't see any of the teams in the region which could cause upsets in a tier 3-4 minor.

If they were the weakest than how did they beat Aequus in the first bo3? The ping was worse for israelis but still it was decently fair 190 ping advantage for riders then 100 ping advantage for Aequus and split half. Also, they beat other teams with similar ping to them so idk.
2020-03-08 16:11
How? The same way they beat them, and other teams - having a huge advantage based on their routing to the server. The 3 teams they beat to earn the spot aren't located in the arabian peninsula, and I bet none of them would lose more than 6 rounds against camel riders on an equal playing field.

Camel Riders lost 2 maps against Israelis even after playing with an advantage of 195 ping? LMFAO, these guys must be so much worse than the Israelis.
2020-03-07 23:26
Camel rider lost both of the maps in EU server in which their pings were 140 vs 60.. So don't speak harsh about some team when you don't know about the whole scenario.
2020-03-08 03:36
And Aequus lost two maps when they had to play with 200ms. Let’s think reasonably, what is more fair - 5ms vs 200ms OR 70ms vs 130ms? I believe there is one very clear answer to this.
2020-03-08 18:44
Having to play with 250 ping really ? I don't give a shit about both teams but that's a fucking joke, this shit is so rigged.

Lol. Decider match played with such a ping difference. Doesn't matter in the end, since none of these teams will make it. It's on esl to make the games fair.
2020-03-08 00:49
It looks like it cannot be fair cuz the Internet in Middle East is broken.

Next time try not to forfeit at 3-12 but at 12-3. KEKW Looks like those Israelians stay in Europe or NA or somewhere far away from Middle East. This is Middle East qual so it is YOUR responsibility to move ur ass to somewhere in Middle East, at least close to it. Imagine Tylul playing China qual from their Europe bootcamp and crying for 200+ ping?
2020-03-08 05:45
My bad, after reading the comment section I realized it is all about routing issue. I know Jews and Arabian hate each other but didn't expect even the Internet is broken.
2020-03-08 05:51
Why every TO is too dumb to make fair qualifier? Faceit gave free wins when they had the major. ESL provide server from the jungle. And valve? Gaben is swimming in his money right now

Its impossible to make a fair one... Best solution is to send all teams to UAE/Israel and everyone is with same ms. The problem is no Arab country is allowed to enter Israel and no Israeli can enter any Arab country.
