The first season of the new European League has finally come to an end. With the last playday of stage 2 ending yesterday, we now have the teams confirmed for the November Six Major 2020 and the European regional finals.
Ubisoft confirmed that the November Six Major will now only be an online tournament instead of a LAN event, which is why it is being titled as the ‘Mini-Major’. Here are the four teams that made it into this Mini-Major.
- BDS Esport
- Team Empire
- Tempra Esports
EUL Stage 2 standings
The November Major spot was open until the last playday, as BDS Esport and Virtus.Pro were the only teams to secure their position for the Major. This meant Team Empire, Secret, G2 Esports, Tempra all had a chance to qualify for the ‘Mini-Major’.
In Playday 9, Team Empire went against Team Secret and G2 Esports faced Tempra Esports, and the winner of both of these matches would directly guarantee their major spot. The Russians once again showed their capability by defeating Team Secret with a 7-4 scoreline on Kafe Dostoyevsky.
On the other hand, G2 Esports were the favorites to advance to the Majors as they went head to head against Tempra Esports in Oregon. But to everyone’s surprise, Tempra managed to snatch a 7-3 victory against G2, as they gained an early advantage by winning 5 rounds on defense. G2 Esports once again fail to display their dominance with the new “Super Team” squad, and they will have to prove their worth in the future as they did manage to qualify for the EU finals.
