After 2 days of fierce competition, the FIFA21 Qualifiers reached their verdict! You will know everything about surprises, confirmations, and the return of well-known faces!
FIRST DAY OF THE QUALIFIER
Saturday, 2 pm, beginning of the qualifications: All the players are ready to start the Swiss System. As a reminder, the principle of the Swiss System is that each player faces an opponent who has done as good (or as bad) as him until now. For this 1st day of qualification, players must reach 4 wins to reach the 2nd day.
Matches are going at a fast pace… and then after a few hours of play, it’s already clearer: 180 players registered for the FIFA21 Qualifiers, only 24 are still running for 1st place. There are well-known names still there such as Ivanilson, AbdouBrown, Ciscinho, or DiogoSantos, but also new challengers such as players from Team Game Changer and Team Kaio, Gkmlrn or Bonvini_8
End of the first day!
SECOND DAY OF THE QUALIFIER
For the last phase of the Qualifiers, the contenders for qualification face each other in a BO3 knockout match (in 3 rounds). The tension is at its peak because even if a player made a perfect journey so far (4-0), losing this match is equal to an elimination! The mental plays then a determining role in this ultimate round. 24 players, 12 matches, for 12 qualified and 12 eliminated!
Let’s end the suspense, here is the list of the lucky ones:
– Old friends coming back:
Ivanilson, Diogo Santos, AbdouBrown, Didi Storm et LouisLux
Kuuzy, Kim, Levis12, Saro_09, Gkmlrn, Bonvini_8, MessiMaestro71
– Last year’s top 4, already qualified:
xFabinho, Fuoriclasse, Shadoow and LxbFIFA
To conclude, the return of a lot of old friends but above all a new generation that is gradually starting to impose itself. As proof, the historical Luxembourg players LastKing (Team Slick) and Ciscinho (Outplay) did not manage to repeat their performance of last year by falling one game ahead of the qualification!
They now have 2 weeks to prepare for the regular season with 3.500€ to share, as well as a ticket for the Invitational on June 6th for the top 8 where 1.500€ will be won.
The battle will be fierce!
