FG, EG.us & HR win WCG qualifiers

FireGamers and Evil Geniuses came from behind to win their respective WCG qualifiers, in a very busy weekend.

In Brazil, FireGamers joined mibr in the Grand Final after a very close 16-14 win over playArt in the Consolidation Final, but proved they were anything but out of the discussion for a spot in Chengdu as they secured a 2-1 win.

On de_train, mibr made little use of the advantage of starting as CT, as they could not get more than eight rounds. Although FG did not fare much better in defensive affairs, some good play in the last rounds saw them take a late 16-14 win to restore parity in the tie.

The next map was de_inferno, where FG were simply too hot to handle, with Lincoln "fnx" Lau returning to his old form as he helped his side take an 11-4 lead at the break. In the second half, FG confirmed their good moment as they took the necessary five rounds to leave mibr in despair.

Broken tag

In the United States, Evil Geniuses too came from the Lower Bracket to win the WCG qualifier. Playing with a stand-in, Travis "tuBBy" Bechtol, instead of Finnish veteran Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen, it looked like this would go down to Turmoil after they won the first half of de_inferno 11-4. However, EG pulled off an impressive comeback to win the map 16-14.

On de_nuke, EG started better as they strolled to a 12-3 result at half time. The former Gravitas team then responded in the second half, but it was too much to come back from, as EG would get their fourth round to win it 16-13.

Evil Geniuses have secured paid travel and accomodation to the WCG Finals, while Turmoil have been given direct entry into the competition, but will have to support all the costs themselves.

Broken tag

Elsewhere, HellRaisers won the Ukrainian WCG qualifier following an intense 2-1 win over Amazing Gaming. After winning CGL IV last weekend, A-Gaming were the big favourites here, but they were unable to move past KerchNET this time around.

After winning de_train 19:17 in overtime, HellRaisers lost 16-13 on de_inferno. A-Gaming could not find themselves on de_tuscan, as HellRaisers came out 16-4 winners to emerge victorious in the qualifier.

This concludes our coverage of the weekend's WCG qualifiers. In total, HLTV.org covered five different competitions in these two days. HLTV demos of these tournaments will be made available in the coming days.

And only one team from country?

2009-09-29 18:32
Well this is just my opinion, BUT tbh i think cogu is the maddest awp in the world. if mibr hadn't cogu i could say they wouldnt have gone very far there, mby 5-8th place
2009-09-28 14:04
MIRAA, you must be going nuts covering 3 qualifiers simultaneously :P. Take your time, just please make sure you upload POV's for fnx/FalleN/nak/cogu for WCG Brazil, and fRoD/n0thing for WCG USA, if possible (as in if there were any recorded). Btw, you're doing a great job!

Was it a 2-1 win over PlayArt or mibr? Because they won 2-0 over mibr. Great article anyway! Keep doing your thing

damn i remember mibr was really good what happenned they attending barely any events and losing to teams in brazil? but GL to EG, HR, and FG, i was hoping for coL to go there as well

But EG and coL encounted with each other in the loser bracket, so only one of them. A pity for coL, but to say frankly, coL's defendence is bad at dust2 and train. They have tried their best, but they are lack of Competition Experience. If they take part in more Competitions, they will succeed
2009-09-28 02:10
mibr, had fnx, and more 2 players of FG, now they left n they are better than mibr, just that.
2009-09-28 03:41
coL lost to both Turmoil and EG so they didn't deserve it apparently. :)

mibr isnt out they have a spot to the finals but they have to pay the travel, hotel, etc. They have to win any EM. (they'll win american EM then they go to wcg finals).

in my opinion i think that the mibr sponsors should trade home and not the players. its time to have new international teams in brasil with the same quallity of FG

mibr is tradition sponsors wont trade them for none team in brazil. Mibr is going to chengdu today i hope they get a top 3 and at american EM they win and pay to go to wcg finals at china.
2009-09-28 19:36
I'd like FG win the game.and All the results is in my expected.the WCG game will be more interesting.

2009-09-28 03:49
Well, I saw the match, it was a great match betwen MIBR and FG.. Also I must say the true, FNX used to play very well, for me, I would consider him the best player from brasil.

"Evil Geniuses have secured paid travel and accomodation to the WCG Finals, while Turmoil have been given direct entry into the competition, but will have to support all the costs themselves." Does that go for AG and MiBR as well? Or is only one team allowed in the competition from those countries? Also, good work on the coverage MIRAA and the rest involved, thanks.

yes, they do but they'll only go to china if they pay all by themselves. So they have to be well placed at the EM's arround the world to make some money. Because the organization wont pay for them go to a event to lose.

I'm so happy with HR! After loosing so many times with other ukraine teams (CGL and EMq) they finally won the most important match! Wish them best at WCG Finals

they won only due to a map on which this Tushkan does not almost play in Ukraine, if there was any other I am sure that Ag would win

so we can say that HR won tuscan cuz they play it often at internation scene, so they won cuz of their experience
2009-09-28 10:44
Well, both HR and AG are Ukrainian, so it's the same conditions? It's up to AG to practice it if they know it might be played, and that they need to!

Watched all the 3 finals...and all were close except for the last match between FG vs Mibr..but i enjoyed them all..!! HellRaisers, FG & Turmoil were my favourites to win these qualifiers... EG snatched the win out of Turmoil's mouth... GL Teams and i hope FG reaches top3 atleast!
2009-09-28 12:04
gl HR in China:)
2009-09-28 12:17
it looked like on inferno, FG "knew" what cogu would do almost every round as CT. cogu is an amazing entryfragger with his AWP, and that fuck's up a lot of teams tactics. but FG managed to avoid cogu's position almost every round, giving them a better chance(imo) to take over the sites. that made cogu's job harder, since he had to re-take the sites almost every round. he is probably the source to MiBR's style of playing. looked like they knew exactly where he would go every round. so IMO, tactical win by FG

Yes I know it's expensive, my point was just that you don't buy a spot and pay to WCG or something, you just don't get any help getting to Chengdu. :)

so happy for fg,especially after mibr tried to destroy the lineup by taking bit in,having said that,fg played a grudge match vs mibr and maybe isnt even better than mibr,just had bigger motive :D
2009-09-28 14:27
upload PoV's from all these 3 quals asap!

Nice switch between fg and mibr :) bit is overrated..
2009-09-28 22:22
C'mon you guys. I agree that fallen was really great at this tournament. But don't start to compare him to a legend like cogu, cogu had to shine for years at mibr to be considered what he is, and you guys say fallen is better than him because of the weekend? LOL
2009-09-28 23:32
all 3 of my predictions right :)
2009-09-28 23:42
I have to say that fnx is a beast, no chance mibr, maybe next one. Mibr isnt the same as always,luckly they have cogu.
2009-09-29 03:12
i bet now that mibr would want to recruit FG
2009-09-29 07:58
I wanna see some demos from the 3 quals especially ukraine and brazil! Cmon! GO GO GO!
