IEM Europe qualifiers reach end

The qualifying process for the Intel Extreme Masters European Championship has come to an end, and almost all 36 teams for the competition have been found.

There is still one place to be determined, related to the match between Rage-Gaming and Clan Less Plus, which has not yet been played and is still under protest on the ESL website.

Denmark is so far the most represented country in the competition, with five teams, but it could still be equalised by Sweden, should Rage-Gaming win their qualifying match. Germany and France are the other two countries with four teams each.

The draw, which will take place next week, will produce six groups of six teams. The winner from each group will automatically advance to the European Championship Finals, while the second and third-placed teams will enter the relegation stage for the remaining six spots.

He said "4,"...
2010-09-27 15:24
The coma was there to express the two possibilities for Sweden, therefore saying that 4 or 5 teams could be there from Sweden. I wasn't answering to 4 as in 4 from Denmark. 4, maybe 5 from Sweden is punctually correct and I think it is just a misunderstanding on YOUR part.

it is. sorry

4, maybe 5 from sweden so his four was meant for sweden (as you can see from the list) and he thinks a swe team might be added still.

2010-09-27 04:50
line up?
2010-09-27 04:52
doesn't matter.. they don't exist anymore.. DTS will prolly get their spot.. and kerchnet is without igl (johnta)atm.. apparently there will be a new line up made of gethard/kerchnet guys
2010-09-27 07:27
Will they play the compositions that were
2010-09-27 07:47
gethard will get their spot
2010-09-27 15:00
what makes you say that..? DTS has 3 members of ARENA, so they will probably get ARENA's spot and.. kerchnet still has 4 players (but their new line up is yet to be announced.. and rumors say that this new line up will consist of gethard and kerchnet players)
2010-09-27 15:23
hmmm, I've just checked, they are going to attend with this lineup: ANGE1, craft1k, Kucher, pops, xaoc ange1 is propobly owner of esl account of team, so that's why he's in
2010-09-27 15:37
yeah, but ange1 is not playing. new DTS will play instead (Johnta, craft1k, kucher, xaoc, pops)
2010-09-27 16:14
you dont understand.. you cant just switch slots or players at ESL the owner of team account is ANGE1, he can play if he want to, no matter if others agree, he got power here, so he took 4 DTS members (3 from es ARENA, because you can change max 2 players) and they are going to play
2010-09-27 16:23
nope.. it's you who doesn't understand. It's not up to ange1 anymore.. the spot belongs to DTS now even if ange1 is the account owner.. and how do u even know that?? pops decides in DTS.. ange1 is INACTIVE now, so it's not like "he can play if he want to, no matter if others agree, he got power here, so he took 4 DTS members".. LOL if you can change max 2 players then arena changed ange1 and strike (that's 2 players) to pops and johnta.. with pops being a captain and johnta being an igl. is it really not obvious?? first you are saying that gethard will get the spot, now you are saying that ange1 will play.. get your facts straight!
2010-09-27 17:01
I've said I had checked it: www.esl-world.net/masters/team/5290664/ and now shut up already.. you dont know esl rules at all, to attend any tournament at ESL you have to earn spot. How DTS could attend if they didnt participate qualifiers? they couldnt! If ARENA decided to not attend cuz of lack of playres, GetHard would get their spot, but they will attend afterall
2010-09-27 17:09
are u really that dumb? ARENA = DTS.. think of it that way.. ange1 will NOT play.. Johnta yet to be added.. it will follow esl rules as they will only change 2 players.. and ARENA already earned that spot. gosh.. some people are stupid
2010-09-27 17:18
it doesnt matter that DTS has got 3 players from ARENA, because ANGE1 is owner of team who can attend IEM, also name of team has been change for DTS.arena, which means DTS has got agreement with ANGE1 to play it with him learn esl rules, then discuss or just wait for first match
2010-09-27 17:48
"ANGE1 is owner of team who can attend IEM" - who told you that??? it says that tafa is the manager, kucher is the leader.. if you look at the date when they joined you can see that ange1 wasn't even the first one to join (24 days vs 25 days). What makes you say it with such confidence...? www.esl.eu/ua/cs/5on5/iemv_quali_playoff/team/members/5290664/ "also name of team has been change for DTS.arena, which means DTS has got agreement with ANGE1 to play it with him" - no, it simply means that DTS is taking ARENA's spot on IEM and that dts.arena is missing their in-game leader Johnta who will call strats in this team.. Check Kerchnet's roster.. you can see that Johnta is no longer there.. www.esl.eu/ua/cs/5on5/iemv_quali_playoff/team/2703274/ "learn esl rules, then discuss or just wait for first match" - I WILL watch their matches no worries.. and you are yet to tell me which rules they are breaking if new DTS plays in IEM... or just stfu.

I doubt a Brazilian team will participate in the European Championship ;) complexity already have their American Championship taking place in New York.

where's b4g?
2010-09-27 21:55
Did not make it out of QR2 as they lost 2:0 to HEADSHOTBG.

FX!!!!
2010-09-27 21:57
Can someone explain me x6tence being there O.O
2010-09-27 22:04
As far as I understand it they are featured due to being on top of the corresponding nationally based ranking of the EPS.
2010-09-27 23:36
But if they have no team, will they get a team, or give the spot to B4G...?
2010-09-27 23:39
Seems that, according to a message in Spanish I had to delete, at the official x6tence facebook page it is stated that a new line-up might be announced the next week.
