Four teams have been eliminated right form the first round of qualifiers; the Geek Squad Golden Boys lost their game versus Vega Squadron, SingSing’s stack, Monkey Freedom Fighters have been eliminated by Na’Vi while Alliance seem to have difficulties hitting their stride as they got eliminated once again in the first round, this time around Vanskor‘s squad CIS Rejects being their executioner.

The only one non CIS team who managed to reach the second round of qualifiers are Monkey Business who knocked out the recent winners of Alienware Area 51, 5JuNGz after a tense series in which all three games were played. By the looks of their recent games it seems that BigDaddy-N0tail not only enjoys his role change fully but he is also the main factor for his team's success. Reunited with his long-time friend Tal 'Fly-Simba' Aizik, N0tail has finally found a team that he can truly feel comfortable with.
