The open qualifier in Europe saw a couple of S-tier teams that were unable to qualify for the next stage i.e the Challengers event as the former is deemed to be brutal, featuring back-to-back matches right from the RO128. Fnatic, G2 Esports, and Team Liquid were among those who weren’t able to progress through their brackets despite having top-notch squads. Teams like Alliance, Guild, and Opportunists surprisingly rose to dominance and eventually qualified for the Challengers in a flawless shot.
The European Challengers 1 event is already underway with the fixtures already determined by the event organizer which have been attached below.
- Acend Vs Ninjas In Pyjamas
- Guild Esports Vs Alliance
- Team Heretics Vs Opportunists
- FPX Esports Vs Team Vitality
Unlike the Challengers 1 event in North America, teams in Europe won’t be bearing a chance to go through a double-elimination bracket, which means a single BO3 would decide their fate in the competition. The top 2 teams qualify for the Challengers Final event while the ones eliminated would have to re-enter via the Challengers 2 event, an open qualifier event just like the first iteration of the same.
