Manila Major US qualifiers: the playoff bracket

Dota 2 Andreea “divushka” Esanu

None of the South American teams made it into the playoff stage of the American qualifiers, while both of the squads coming from the open qualifiers competition advanced.

The revamped Digital Chaos had no problem winning Group A, becoming the second team to advance into the playoffs with eight wins and no losses. After a surprisingly good run on day one of the group stages, FDL lost their direct battle with DC, but had gathered enough points versus the rest to take second place in the group from the more experienced competitors, and will continue their adventure in the double elimination playoff bracket.

The other team coming from open qualifiers, Dragneel, finished second in Group B with five points after three draws and a clean victory against Not Today. The winners of Group B are the Champions of BTS Series Americas Season 4, Shazam.

    Damn this DC team is actually super good, might be a very strong contender at this Major to the top tier teams, IF they make it to the Major. P.S: They will most likely make it, unless they choke really hard.
    • Ste "holypepsi" A ,
      w33haa is the best play making mid right now. which imo pairs the best with hardcore carries like miracle, ee and rtz. which makes the teamplay more dynamic and difficult to counter. (where EE and RTZ are same style player) his style is similar to dendi, but slightly better.
      • Number 1 "clariska" of Number 99 ,
        I kinda miss the dota 1 dendi where he chain lighting a crow to kill someone in MyM pride 9(i think)he was still one of the best players back then.Now his just mediocre :s
  • Lim "Raina" Raina ,
    Maybe it is a bad question, but DC is based in US or EU? It is almost a group of EU players forming up to take the 'easier' qualifier.
