AFTER TWO DAYS OF FIERCE COMPETITION, THE LEAGUE OF LEGENDS QUALIFIER HAVE GIVEN THEIR VERDICT! WITH THE RETURN OF SOME WELL-KNOWN TEAMS AND THE ARRIVAL OF SOME NEW FACES, IT WAS AN EVENTFUL WEEKEND. WE TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT IN THIS COMPLETE SUMMARY OF THE QUALIFIERS!
LAST SEASON’S LEADERS KEEP UP
The best teams of last season were there during the qualifiers and logically started with the status of favorites. Among the Top 5 of last year, only Corona Difference was missing. But some of their players were present, including their ex-captain Happy Freezy (top 5 MVP in 2020). who joined Royal Family. Reinforced by this nice recruitment, the Luxembourgish team made perfect qualifiers by crushing down group B (5W-0L)! In this group, Team Slick finishes 2nd with a flattering result (4W-1L). Both teams are qualified!
In group A, it’s no surprise that Brotherhood of the Red Lion and Outplay are doing well. The defending champions and vice-champions finished 1st and 2nd in their group with an advantage for Outplay who took their revenge from the last finals on BOTRL by winning their direct confrontation. Both teams have been greatly changed during the off-season with players from BOTRL leaving for Outplay (Rakusi and Raitch). These changes allow the yellow and blue team to take the ascendancy over their historical rivals, but beware of the Red Lions who have the habit of thwarting the predictions!
NEW CHALLENGERS APPROACHING
This year allowed us to discover some brand new teams from Luxembourg! In group A, if we already knew Nocturnal E-sports, it was not the case of the team Rely On. The 2 structures finish respectively 3rd and 4th of their group and get their ticket for the tournament after a good qualification. Unfortunately, it was too short for Eternal Dindos and Fat Bois Roaming who finished 5th and 6th.
In group B, it’s Mad Turtles who impress with a nice 3rd place (3W-2L), followed by Team Game Changer who gets the last spot for the tournament. After managed to place 2 players on FIFA, the green and white team is also an outsider on League of Legends. Speck Muggels and Idiots of Europe conclude the ranking with 5th and 6th place.
