This weekend saw the first Regional Finals taking place in France and the Nordic and with it the first two teams for the European Finals have been set. The fourth and final qualifiers in Poland and the CIS also took place and brought us the last two teams to complete the lineup of their Regional Finals. Let’s take a look at what happened and what might happen in the Regional Finals in the UK and Poland!
UK: hudzGs TEAM, FM!toxic or can someone surprise?
Two favorites will be facing off in the UK, the newly formed hudzGs TEAM and FM!toxic will meet each other on the battlefield. Only one team will make it to the European Qualifier Finals, while the other still has a shot in the two European Qualifiers. Will we see the all star team of hudzG, webber and their mates triumph after a flawless qualification?
Poland: Can Virtus.pro and MYM take “their” tickets?
Not only one but two tickets to the European Qualifier Finals are on the line in Poland. With Virtus.Pro (former AGAiN) and MeetYourMakers taking part, the tickets are likely to be gone already but the other Polish teams will try everything to play in front of their home crowd in Katowice. Who will come out on top?
France: Clan-Mystik advanced to the European Finals
Just one week ago Clan-Mystik was facing the bad news about two of their star players leaving to LDLC. Now the reigning ESWC champion can smile again. After adding KennyS and GMX to their line up, the team managed to take the first spot in France by winning against Worth.it, Mistral and webSPELL in the final. Now they are part of the final six teams to complete the line up for EMS One Katowice in the European Qualifier Finals from February 25th to 27th.
Nordic: n!faculty succeed in the hardest region
After some hard times and lineup changes, n!faculty is back on track! The all Danish team, played in the qualifiers as “mates&more”, are the champion of the Nordic. By beating TBA, partyastronauts and last but not least H2k in the Grand Final they secured their spot in the European Qualifier Finals.
EMS One Katowice: The next steps
The full CS:GO action goes on and on. While the next three days are focused on the UK and Poland, Friday will be the kick off for the German and the CIS Regional Finals. Stay tuned for further updates!
