apparently based on hltv ranking for seeding, weird choice
2021-05-11 19:50
yes, technically all br teams could qualify which means no NA team would actually qualify but let's be real that's not gonna happen

I dont know man, crazier things have happened. We need more than just Liquid and EG as the NA teams, 3 would be nice. Brazil does deserve a lot of spots though, insanely good teams..

First of all, I appreciate the respect for our teams! That's actually kinda rare to find lol. Second I think the bracket was designed according to the HLTV rankings which coincidentally led to BR and NA teams being separated. I actually think that's kinda cool tbh, would be funny to see all 4 br teams qualify

I think Brazil could easily have 3 top 10 teams, they also have 2 players on top 10 teams as well I think (FalleN and Cold). I'd say they are the 3rd strongest region after Scandinavia and CIS right now I think we need these NA teams to qualify otherwise no org is gonna pick them up and there's a chance NA will die if this happens. Brazil do deserve it though so I wouldn't be that sad if no NA team got through. VAMOS BRASIL!!!

1st round winners: Extra Salt, O Plano, BNB and Pain 2nd round winners: UB: O Plano and Pain (very close games could go either way) LB: GODSENT and T1 3rd round winners: LB: Extra Salt (or O Plano) and GODSENT Classified teams: O Plano, Extra Salt. Pain, GODSENT* * GODSENT, Pain and BNB, could be any combination of those 3, since Pain and BNB are on a very close level and GODSENT's strength is still unknown (they have played only in EU so far)
