nawwk, D0cC qualify for BLAST Showdown with POGGERZ

The mix came through the Levant and North Africa qualifier.

The Fall 2021 Calyx Dune Cup has concluded, with POGGERZ securing a victory and acquiring a spot at the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown later this year. The lineup featured benched NIP member Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson alongside famed FPL players Shuaib "⁠D0cC⁠" Ahmad and Nikola "⁠Lobanjica⁠" Mijomanović.

nawwk was the third highest rated player at the event

Playing alongside Syrian duo Ahmad "⁠SpAwNns⁠" Kanaan and Kais "⁠KD69z⁠" Abduljawad, the mixteam advanced past Group A in the Dune Cup, with victories over NASR and Alpha. In the playoffs, they beat Algerian squad vSlash, which featured both Timothée "⁠DEVIL⁠" Démolon and Matvey "⁠Mewpy⁠" Podgornyi.

In the final, POGGERZ faced invited team Falcons. While the first two maps were extremely close, nawwk powered them to victory with a 1.38 rating. They weren't without opposition however, as Danish youngster Alexander "⁠br0⁠" Bro put up a 1.27 rating over the series.

 Falcons K - D +/- ADR Rating 2.0
74 - 56 +18 92.9 1.27
63 - 66 -3 80.6 1.04
54 - 63 -9 72.5 0.99
51 - 61 -10 67.2 0.91
47 - 58 -11 60.6 0.90
 POGGERZ K - D +/- ADR Rating 2.0
78 - 52 +26 91.8 1.38
73 - 54 +19 82.1 1.26
60 - 62 -2 78.8 1.06
50 - 56 -6 65.2 0.96
43 - 66 -23 64.8 0.82

By winning the Calyx Dune Cup, POGGERZ have secured themselves a spot at the next BLAST Showdown, set to take place in October, just before the Major in Stockholm. So far, Movistar Riders are the only other team to have secured a spot at the event, with the China qualifier being underway now.

With nawwk being contracted to NIP still, a potential conflict of interest could arise should NIP move down to the BLAST Showdown after the Fall Groups in September. While his contractual status could certainly change before the Showdown, it could potentially result in the team using a new player.

pro torunaments then = full of pros, pro tournaments now full of streamers having fun... the quality of FPL is ruined by streamers like these, I like the content, but you lose pro players who don't enjoy fpl anymore, and you only get these streamers and some other tier 3 players in fpl... you don't see a full stacked fpl game with stars anymore.. if you have a 4 players from top 10 teams it's considered a success

Using example from more competitive regions in the game like Europe. Europe is the scene where you have more access to other good teams so if you need to train against good teams from ESEA and other platforms, if you and your friends can't qualify it's because of incompetence and not the fault of someone from another region
