Sangal, Movistar Riders move on to Flashpoint 3 closed qualifier

SKADE and Copenhagen Flames were among the biggest names who missed out on a spot in the next qualifying stage and will have to try again.

Sangal and Movistar Riders are the first two names to secure a spot in the Flashpoint 3 closed qualifier after finishing at the top of the first of four open qualifiers leading up to the European Regional Major Ranking tournament.

The Turkish side earned their spot after beating Unicorns of Love and Quantum Bellator Fire in the final stages of the single-elimination bracket, before they were given a default win over SKADE in the deciding semi-finals due to a scheduling conflict with a match in the Elisa Invitational on the Bulgarian side's part.

MAJ3R & co. moved on to the next qualifying stage for the RMR event

Meanwhile, some of the most notable teams Movistar Riders beat on their way to the top were 19CM GANG, a mixteam featuring Nikola "⁠Lobanjica⁠" Mijomanović and Rigon "⁠rigoN⁠" Gashi, Chetz, as well as Copenhagen Flames in a closely-contested deciding series.

Three more open qualifiers, played from April 17-25, will determine six more teams advancing to the closed qualifier, which will have five spots on offer at the first European Regional Major Ranking event in 2021. The remaining eight participants will be decided via invites, which are yet to be announced.

the match was supposed to start at 10pm for turkish time. It would be too late for us if we started late It is not our problem that SKADE decided to play 4 qualifiers in the same day. The match is at 10pm, so they should be on the server on 10pm

The worst part is Turkish actually told Skade they would have no problem rescheduling up until they realized they'll probably lose the chance to get into the closed qualy.

Nah, they postponed 3 times first it was 8 pm then 9 pm and at the end, it was 10 pm ant at 10.45 Skade was still playing and if the match was not rescheduled to another day the match would start at 12 pm in Turkey and considering that Sangal has the regionals to play for MDL and they have to plat the EDC it is pretty understandable and it is bullshit to cry about this when there are 3 more qualifiers.

2021-04-16 15:50
with #9 and your comment I feel bad for the hate on Sangal. kinda bad sportsmanship, but they would have royally fucked themselves if they delayed
2021-04-16 00:04

Sangal should have ff'd since they dont have a chance to win more than one game in closed quals, skade would at least have some chance.
2021-04-16 09:51
Sangal will win flashpoint
2021-04-16 00:01
Sangal so cringe. They knew they'd get outlandishly dumpstered by SKADE and had to force them to forfeit.

They just delayed the pain. Now they will lose in flashpoint quals.
2021-04-16 00:09
Dude respect them. wdym they had to force them to forfeit? They don't have to reschedule the match because of opponent's fault. If SKADE wanted to win they wouldn't have made a mistake like this. Whether Sangal agreed to delay the match or not it's their decision.You have no right to speak against them like this.

I agree. Sangal was kinda Grimey and bad sportsmanship on their part. But, it’s Skade’s own fault and oh well you can’t expect sangal to delay if they don’t want to

Not a skade fan don't even know who they are but that was a clown move by sangal(who?)
2021-04-16 04:12

One map = 3 hour of delay ? They delay the match 3 times and at 10:45 they were still playing. Skade were too greedy

2021-04-16 10:55
The silence of all sangal players and staff. Speaks enough for all of this. Regardless, it is what it is. If Skade are good enough they will make it in the next qualies and for Sangal. Their true strength will be showcased in the CQ. I hope they don't get absolutely dupstered there. To ruin your credibility just so you get destroyed does not seem like a good trade to me
2021-04-16 11:44
Sangal has match in 14.00 if they win they have bo3 and in 20.00 another bo3 with movistar how can they delay the match

Sangal has a little bit of life left in them, they sometiems show some interesting stuff, the core of MAJ3R, paz and imoRR with right teammates could be a TOP 30 team. Movistar Riders are looking great, I would say they are in my TOP 30 atm.
