Alliance has done it-qualifying for ESL One Hamburg 2018 next month with a 3:0 win over Espada. 

It had been too-long a slump for the iconic Swedish organization heading into the new season, but Alliance is now on fire. The new squad was able to outlast and overpower each of their opponents as they cruised through the upper brackets of the ESL One Hamburg 2018 EU Qualifiers. They started out with a nice clean 2:0 sweep over Espada and then bested Team Spirit 2:1 to be the first team to head into the grand finals, claiming a one-game advantage for their efforts. Once there, they went head to head with Espada once again and, once again, they swept through the CIS team - gaining the sole EU qualifier spot for the main event.
