Cloud9 scored a 3-2 victory over FIRE yesterday to secure the single America slot for the LAN finals in the Asia Championships. FIRE, who had previously lost to Cloud9 in the winners bracket finals, returned to rematch in the America grand finals after a victory in the losers bracket. With this victory, EternaLEnVy will lead his team in the LAN grand finals with the hope of taking home a major chunk of the $1.5 million prize pool.
Qualifiers continue today with the larger European bracket. PowerRangers so far have upset expectations, leading in the qualifying tournament with other major names taking a slot in the losers bracket. But fear not hardened fans of Team Tinker, Na’Vi and Virtus.Pro — unlike the America qualifiers second and third place of the tournament — one team will earn a spot in the wild card qualifiers to compete for two slots in the LAN grand finals.
European qualifiers are far from over and will continue until the 11th. Stay tuned to see who earns the coveted European slot!
