Sangal qualify for BLAST Showdown as fnatic miss out

Sangal are the first team to qualify for the Fall Showdown through the European circuit.

Sangal won GAM3RS_X EU Champions Fall 2022 to qualify for BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, leaving the rest of the European competition behind at the online event. Robin "⁠ScrunK⁠" Röpke's team went undefeated in the group stage before taking down fnatic and LDLC in back-to-back playoff matches.

fnatic came into the tournament as the highest-ranked team, but showed signs of weakness in the group stage with a defeat at the hands of LDLC. Despite the loss, the team in black-and-orange reached the knockout phase after defeating PACT, but were eliminated in the semi-finals by Sangal 1-2.

ScrunK and company qualified to the Fall Showdown over fnatic and LDLC

The other semi-final was decided between LDLC and the Poles of PGE Turow. Arthur "⁠Snobling⁠" Benard, one of the strongest performers at the whole event, registered a 1.45 rating in the series to power the Frenchmen to the grand final. The last match was rough for Filip "⁠Graviti⁠" Brankovic's men, as they only accumulated 12 rounds in total during Sangal's grand final sweep.

Congratulations to Sangal! I'm especially happy for phzy since NIP clearly didn't see his potential or talent. As for fnatic, this is sheer disappointment. mezii as an IGL is a rifler's talent going to waste if you ask me.
