Playoff teams set for ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

After a week of playing in groups, four teams have emerged as the victors to advance to the playoff stage in ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas. 

All things considered, the outcome of teams advancing to the playoffs for ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas has been slightly surprising. Not only is it split 50/50 with two teams from NA and two teams from SA, but some of the more seasoned or favorites of the regions aren't even counted among them. 

NA took the first and fourth place spots with Quincy Crew on top and 4 zoomers being the bottom of the sandwich. SA filled the middle with Infamous and Thunder Predator respectively. 

Who missed out? Cr4zy and business associates, as well as beastcoast with a very disappointing showing and 6:12 win/loss record. 

The four victors will begin the battle for the largest share of the $65,000 prize pool tomorrow, August 25th. It will be NA brawl followed by an SA fight.
