Europe Minor teams set – OG, BIG, Heroic fail to qualify

The final spots for the Europe Minor have been filled following the conclusion of the Closed Qualifier with GODSENT, Movistar Riders, and Copenhagen Flames earning their spot. Missing from this list is the OG, BIG, and Heroic lineups as the teams fell short of making the cut for the event.

Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen and co. took down KOVA to make it into their match against GODSENT. GODSENT opened up the series with a massive 16-3 victory on OG’s map pick to go up 1-0. A double OT victory by Issa “ISSAA” Murad’s side pushed the series to the limits at three maps, but ultimately a tight game on Nuke would go the way of GODSENT, sealing their place at the Europe Minor and sending OG home.

Copenhagen Flames defeated Sprout 2-1 to set up their match against Heroic. The Danish derby would only go two maps as CPH Flames took home two narrow victories at 16-13 and 16-14 to take the series 2-0.

Movistar Riders took on BIG in their Minor decider. BIG’s Florian “syrsoN” Rische finished with a massive 44-27 kill-to-death record but was unable to pull out the victory as Movistar Riders took the series 2-1 thanks to a 22-20 double OT victory on map one and a 16-4 win on map three Inferno.

Dignitas claimed their spot at the Minor after defeating Nordavind in a 2-1 series. Kevin “HS” Tarn’s side took the first map of the series, however, Dignitas would bounce back with the remaining two maps to take the series and leave their opponents on the outside looking in.
