Goose beats v8 in three very close games. The North American representatives in Kiev will be A Picture of a Goose, Dignitas, and Team SoloMid. A Picture of a Goose has been one of the teams just on the edge of the spotlight for a long time, so this qualification for Kiev has been awhile in the making. I’ll have a recap and stray notes up soon (long day x_x).
The final best of three is beginning soon. v8 and Goose will be playing for the final NA slot for IEM Kiev.
CLG knocked out by v8. The last Kiev spot is going to Goose, Curse, or v8, all of whom are not part of the big four NA teams. Exciting times.
Goose pulls off the second major upset of the day and Epik is knocked out of the tournament. Westrice had to download the tournament client for his computer and caused his team to take a forfeit on the first round, so bad luck all around for them.
Battle of the upset victors with Epik vs. Curse on NESL channel 1 soon.
Team SoloMid has beaten Team Curse which secures their spot to IEM Kiev. Only one spot left between Epik, Goose, v8, CLG, and Curse.
Goose is about to possibly pull an upset against Epik so you might want to check that out in NESL channel 1.
The first game of the CLG vs. v8 match is happening right now on NESL channel 2.
Dignitas has won their second round match against v8 and secures their spot to IEM Kiev, so congratulations to them. TSM and Curse are still running their match to see which of them will advance on to Kiev. Epik vs. Goose going to a third game right now on NESL channel 1.
Doublelift’s old team beat Doublelift’s new team. A big upset against CLG for Curse. CLG and Epik in the loser’s bracket now; only one of them will be able to move on to Kiev.
Epik cannot find Westrice and are forced to forfeit the first round after an hour and forty-five minutes of waiting. v8 advances through to the second round and Epik goes to the loser’s bracket. Unfortunate turn of events for Epik Gamer.
CLG vs. Curse game 1 crazy back and forth. Curse ran a really odd team comp of Tryndamere, Graves, Soraka, Nocturne, and ap carry Kog’Maw. Curse ended up backdooring two inhibitors but with only nexus turrets and one inhibitor CLG began taking a huge lead in gold and kills. CLG tried to push for baron though and started a bad team fight with only bigfatjiji’s Kassadin surviving. Graves, Kassadin, and Tryndamere pushed through for an upset victory.
