lol123 scrape by Rooster to claim final IEM Fall Oceania Closed Qualifier spot

The squad that formerly represented Chiefs will be fighting for a spot at the RMR event after a nailbiter finish to the second open qualifier.

From 15-11 down on the second map, lol123 fought back and took Mirage after three sets of overtime before stealing away the final series of the IEM Fall 2021 Oceania Open Qualifier 2 from Rooster, 2-1.

The win is crucial for lol123, who have been left without organizational backing since Chiefs' decision to pull out of Counter-Strike at the start of September. The team joins VERTEX, LookingForOrg (ex-Dire Wolves), and 8Ballers in the Closed Qualifier, which takes place on September 17-19.

BL1TZ kept lol123 in the game

Rooster are left regretting a missed opportunity, with an in-form Michael "⁠chelleos⁠" Hawkins (1.44 rating in grand final) not being enough for the squad to advance to the next stage. Similarly, Ground Zero are left without a closed qualifier spot, having finished 3rd-4th in both open qualifiers.

I think the numbers they wanted at the end of their team were probably taken and they just got fed up and put 123 😐
