mousesports and BIG qualify for PGL Major Stockholm, OG out of contention

With OG's loss, MOUZ Major berth is secured, as is BIG's due to their win over Heroic.

OG will not be attending the PGL Stockholm Major, after a loss to FaZe and BIG's victory made it impossible for the RMR standings to fall in their favour.

They didn't do much to help themselves in their own series, getting comfortably rolled over on Ancient and Mirage. FaZe, who still have a chance of making it to Stockholm, only had to work for it on the second half of Inferno, where an 11 round streak secured OG a glimmer of hope after an abysmal first half.

The boys in blue had multiple scenarios that would have seen them qualify for the Major, but losing to FaZe severely limited their options. That left them needing the 9-12th decider bracket to shake out in a very specific way, and BIG's victory ruined any possibility that it could happen.

MOUZ will be celebrating FaZe's success almost as much as Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen and co., as OG's loss means that mouz are now qualified for the Major. Due to the hefty RMR points total they already have to their name, MOUZ had several likely scenarios that would see them qualify. In the end, OG's inability to place higher than 10th has secured that all important Major berth.

With this result FaZe keep their hopes of making it to Stockholm alive, and they will need to beat BIG to place ninth overall at a minimum. If they do, they then need one of Fiend, Copenhagen Flames, ENCE, and Movistar Riders to finish eighth.

In the other game in the bracket, BIG secured a 2-0 victory over Heroic to stamp their ticket to Stockholm, clinching a close Nuke before comfortably taking home Vertigo.

BIG came into this 9-12th decider bracket knowing that they simply needed to win one of their two series, and they got the job done against slight favourites Heroic. The nature of the victory will be promising for the German squad moving forward, considering they managed to steal away Heroic's map pick before brushing the Danes aside on their own.

The current team list for PGL Major Stockholm is:

Russia Natus Vincere - Legends
Russia Gambit - Legends
Russia Spirit - Challengers

There's still a chance OG could make it to the major if one of the EU teams can't make it to the major right? Due to visa or ban issues? Of course, the odds of that are slim to none, but the hail mary still exists in some world.

You absolute braindead moron. That is exactly what he is saying. How can you be British, the birthplace of the English language, and not know follow any basic English dialogue? Follow the reply chain and realise that the topic is about Movistar Riders. "Yeah, now that OG is out of the contention they only need a 7th" - Movistar Riders need 7th to guarantee a major place with OG gone "if big wins faze, faze is also out and they're in." - self-explanatory, FaZe is out and Movistar Riders are automatically in regardless of what they place in play-offs. Imagine being this confidently wrong. How embarrassing is it that people who treat English as a 2nd language can follow a basic conversation better than you, a Brit. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy watching AU players be present at the Major, in contrast to the zero UK players present there. Stick to watching football mate or better yet, invest in some English classes.

Oh dear, you have to resort to insults once you realised that you were completely wrong and felt that you needed to double down even further. How sad, and really how pathetic that you can't admit you were wrong. It's actually embarassing to see you, a Scot, have such a poor understanding of his native tongue. Oh yeah, on another note, at least my flair qualified to the major through EU after winning one of the RMR events. It's not a huge accomplishment but it's an infinitely bigger achievement than what any Scot in CSGO has done. So honestly mate, I wouldn't be the one talking about irrelevant scenes. But I'll be nice, you can PM me and I'll try my best to teach you the basics of English reading comprehension, starting from the curriculum they teach in the first grade. I won't charge you anything, I promise.

The fact that you think English is Scotland's native tongue is very embarrassing, I think it is you who needs to educate yourself, especially when you live in a stolen country. I'm not sure why you think it bothers me that there are no Scottish csgo teams or players, I can assure you it does not, unlike you I don't feel the compulsive need to make my countrymens wins my own as you probably lack any personal success in your life. May I also remind you that it is you who started with the insults first I understand than your blood alcohol levels are probably fairly high at any point throughout the day so I'll cut you some slack on that one.

"Native tongue" means the language you've been exposed from since birth, you idiot. Collins Dictionary: "the native language of someone; the language of the country that someone is born in or native to" Are you going to try and argue that Scots don't mainly speak English? And now here comes the gaslighting. The reply chain is right fucking there. You were the one who replied to the guy saying he was wrong and asked if he read the article when he was talking about Movistar Riders, not FaZe. And then you decided to double down and call me "stupid" once I said you were wrong (which by the way, you still haven't admitted to because you decided to go off on some tangent about my country instead). "I'm not sure why you think it bothers me that there are no Scottish csgo teams or players," And I'm not sure why you brought up AU CS first when it was entirely irrelevant to the starting convo. I'm simply attempting to convey to you that there's a strange sense of irony of trying to mock another person's scene when yours is entirely non-existent. I'll at least enjoy watching my fellow countrymen at the major. And honestly, where did this alcoholism angle come from? Is it another one of your projections, because a Scotsman trying to take some moral high ground on excessive drinking is a new one for me. But don't worry, trying to teach a native English speaker... English... is also a new one for me as well.

OG really need improve their map pool. Always perma banning the newest map is hurting them. Aleksib should start playing it. Or ruggah should try convince him to play it Anyway I am just a sad delusional og fan

BIGs mappool sadly isn’t really good either, I think they should play ancient tbh Their Inferno and overpass dont really look good and with ancient they theoretically have 3 ‚permabans‘ currently

LOL, they were basically booked in before this RMR event started

Wait, I think OG still have a shot if it place at 11th and Faze places at 10th. In this scenario OG pts will outweigh Faze's. nvm only 11 spots and faze is at 12th now

Placing as high as possible outside of the top11 might still matter in case of some Team not being able to travel to the major because of COVID or some scumbag team getting banned because of cheating

good news

It has to suck for faze to be the last once to still be playing and hoping it turns out in their favor :)

OG so damn overrated, they never looked promising for a moment, just a stack of random names who ain't got no hunger for victories, they're not tier 1 and I don't think they'll ever be

After a while, Gade became more and more a (big) part of BIG. I like that.

mouz looked pretty bad with their firepower lately, but still making the Major isn't surprising for this team. BIG however is a huge surprise, this team has been looking totally dead since XANTARES left, like it's really hard to look for positives, if not tabseN they would probably be out of TOP 50 by now lol. Still WP for both teams.

Yeah I mean they surely know how to play the game, it's just the fact that their firepower is really in the worst place it has ever been I feel like, also it's still a new lineup, overall a lot of problems. We will see how it develops, I think tabseN and syrsoN alone can be dangerous for some teams if they have good days, so I guess we just need to wait and see.

I think he still deserves more time to prove himself on LAN, we'll see how it goes, I hope the best for him honestly.
