IEM Fall CIS qualification reaches conclusion

With their victories today, names like Nemiga and Entropiq are among the final teams who have qualified for the event, which takes place September 29-October 3.

The closed qualifier for IEM Fall CIS ended today with six teams qualifying to grab spots at the tournament, which will be the final Regional Major Ranking event. The six that qualified join six direct invites to battle out for the last RMR points on offer and will be hoping to seal qualification for the PGL Major in Stockholm, taking place October 26-November 7.

Jame and co. will be hoping to rescue their ailing qualification campaign

The four teams directly invited to the best-of-three double elimination qualifier, Entropiq, Unique, Nemiga and Akuma, all qualified at the first attempt by winning their opening round games. This sent the four teams that made it through the open qualifiers to the lower bracket to compete for the final two spots, where AVE and INDE IRAE triumphed to complete the team list and end the qualification phase for IEM Fall CIS.

With up to 2500 RMR points up for grabs at IEM Fall, and about that many points separating 1st and 8th in the current CIS RMR standings, there is plenty left to play for.

Many eyes will be on Virtus.pro who, despite being ranked #7 in the HLTV world rankings, are currently sat outside the qualification spots for the Major. At IEM Fall, they will need to outplace teams like K23 and forZe in particular if they want to have any hope of making it to Stockholm.

The full team list for the IEM Fall CIS event can be found below:

Russia Natus Vincere - Invite

CIS Virtus.pro - Invite

Would be the most idiotic move possible. He wasn't good for Navi at the end of his run, what makes you think he would be good against the same opposition in a different team?

#1 team in the world, just completed Intel Grand Slam, no one can touch them, and you think they could do that with a "shite" IGL? You need to wake up and stop listening to Richard Lewis.
2021-09-20 06:13
Boombl4 does one of the most selfless roles in NaVi and without him the team won't be nearly as successful as it is now

Last year didn't even matter, teams played these events for nothing. VP got top 4 at every one of them except for the last one yet they probably won't make the major, while K23 will because of 1 semi-decent performance. Doesn't make sense.
