With nothing slowing them down, the European mix is barreling down the track towards even more TI8 qualifying points at an alarming speed. Currently, the team sits in second place - behind Virtus.Pro and ahead of TI7 Champions, Team Liquid - with 480 points. They will appear at Perfect World Masters in China on November 19th and now will head out to Jönköping, Sweden December 1-4th to compete for the $1,000,000 prize pool and 1500 qualifying points. So far, the team has or is slated to participate in all six Pro Circuit events through early December.
In the EU/CIS DreamLeague Season 8 regional qualifier Team Secret took the top place with a 10:2 score so far. They still have one series left to play and the league is still in progress until November 16th with a total of 8 more series left to be completed, but their record is already enough to guarantee them the spot in the main event.
Virtus.Pro, Team Liquid, and Na'Vi are all primed in the next positions as four teams total will have the chance to advance. OG and MidorFeed both are hanging on by a thread with a song and prayer. Unfortunately, both Vega Squadron and Team Empire have already been eliminated.
