The eight teams will now compete for four slots at the LAN finals of the Americas Minor, hosted by ELEAGUE at the ELEAGUE Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, from December 3-4. The top two teams of the Americas Minor will secure $30,000 and $15,000 respectively, along with tickets to the major qualifier for the ELEAGUE Major 2017 taking place in January.
The first qualifier saw Selfless Gaming and Splyce emerge victorious over paiN Gaming and compLexity Gaming respectively. However, while the Brazilian roster of paiN was able to secure a single map over their opponents, compLexity were not able to produce a single map against Splyce.
In the second qualifier, Muffin Lightning secured a victory over compLexity Gaming, who were unfortunately defeated for a second time with a 2:1 map score in favour of the former.
PaiN Gaming had also returned for the second qualifier, where the team won their round of eight match by default, as their opponents – RONIN, were unable to produce a full roster line-up. PaiN then went on to secure a 2:1 map victory against Vault, landing the team a spot in the closed qualifier.
Now that the two groups for the closed qualifier have been drawn, the first match-ups have also been revealed:
Cloud9 vs paIN
TSM vs Selfless
Immortals vs Muffin Lightning
Echo Fox vs Splyce
