NA Superpowers, Team Liquid and FURIA have confirmed their spots at the PGL Major in Stockholm. Team Liquid have already confirmed their spot as Legends, while the remaining 2 Legends spots are still up for grabs. It is more than likely that FURIA too will go to Stockholm as Legends, but it isn’t confirmed just yet except the fact that they will surely go to the Major.
Both the teams have had a flawless run at IEM Fall: NA till now, winning all 4 of their games and thus confirming qualification for playoffs. Liquid will play Extra Salt in their final game while FURIA play EG.
The remaining 3 spots – 1 Legend,1 Challenger and 1 Contender Spot will be up for grabs come the final day. 00Nation haven’t had any wins at IEM Fall and despite having 1300 RMR points, they will more than likely not make it to the Major as they cannot make playoffs anymore.
GODSENT are in prime position to qualify for playoffs as they already have 3 wins out of 4, and they are up against Triumph in their last game. A win there would secure GODSENT and FURIA for playoffs but should they lose, Group B will be blown wide open as 2 teams will have 3 wins out of 5. If EG also beat FURIA then there will be a 3-way tie for second place and MR3 OT tiebreakers will take place.
EXTREMUM,the ex-100Thieves roster have 1880 RMR points and can make it to the Major easily even if GODSENT surpasses them in RMR points. It would take a lot of upsets to put EXTREMUM out of contention for the PGL Major.
The final games will be played tomorrow with the semi-finals and 5th place decider on Saturday and Sunday with the Grand Final on Monday (as per IST).
This makes it a total of 16 teams out of 24 that have qualified for the Major, they are
- Natus Vincere
- Team Spirit
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
- Team Liquid
