Extra Salt, O PLANO secure wins in cs_summit 8 closed qualifier openers

The two teams will face off on Sunday, with the winner advancing directly to the main event.

Extra Salt and O PLANO have claimed victory in their opening matches for the cs_summit 8 closed qualifier, advancing to the upper bracket semi-final where they will face off against one another for a spot in the Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event.

Extra Salt, who received a direct invite to the closed qualifier based off being the highest ranked side in North America not already competing in the main event, were matched up against GODSENT in the first round of play, with the Brazilian roster also receiving an invite despite being ranked below Triumph at the time invites were distributed.

The disparity led to the two invited sides facing off in the first round due to the bracket being seeded by more recent rankings than when the invites were distributed, while Triumph and O PLANO, who both advanced through the open qualifiers, were also drawn against each other.

Sonic led the way for Extra Salt in their opening match

Extra Salt, fresh off a gamut of European tournaments, put their practice to good use against GODSENT, with Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek shining in a 16-8 win on Nuke to open the series. Inferno, GODSENT's map pick, was a more keenly contested affair, with the lead being traded back and forth before Extra Salt narrowly prevailed in triple overtime to take the series.

O PLANO required all three maps to take a win over Triumph, with the two sides trading 16-13 wins on Nuke and Dust2, respectively, forcing a Train decider. There, the trio of Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles, Leonardo "⁠leo_drk⁠" Oliveira, and Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira combined to help their team to an 8-7 scoreline at halftime, before establishing dominant control in the second half with eight rounds in a row to take the series.

Unfortunately, this is sort of true, nowadays almost every tier 2 EU team can upset the most of tier 1 teams of the scene (sometimes)

I mean it is all online cs. There will be upsets. Valorant has the same problem except NA is a lot bigger than Europe. Teams will have 45 ping playing teams with 8 ping.

I hope so too, they seem like an interesting mix and this match against Extra Salt will be a good startup to prove what they are really capable of as a team. I'm expecting it to go all the three maps.

Godsent is just an Instagram team. Too much media, push-ups, laughter, psychological training and stuff like that, but almost 0 in-game results of all that they show BTW, long time no see LUCAS1 on top of the board. Hope to see O PLANO (say it again) working out
