WDC qualifiers finished
No big surprise on top, as EHOME managed to get the best of the competition yet again, playing their remaining two matches right after they won the Road of Kings tournament, two days ago.
Following up, are Nirvana.Cherry, RotK's runner-up Dream,as well as LGD and Nv.FrdCH on the places two, three, four and five. With four teams being tied on equal points, rule #6 of the qualifiers competition comes to pass stating:
Since Nv.FrdCH fell to both Dream and LGD in the rounds one and three, they had to step down. The rule became a trivialty though, due to the teams recent disbandment, making them ineligible for an attendance.
