The group stage was over on 26 May. United States Minor Outlying Islands North American Rejects and Canada Void Boys were the obvious leaders of the group A. As concerns group B, the leaders were United States Minor Outlying Islands compLexity Gaming and Canada mousesports. The Peruvians of Peru Not Today were surprizingly weak, though many fans predicted they'd get to the play off. The new team of United States Minor Outlying Islands ixmike88 — United States Minor Outlying Islands Wheel Whreck While Whistling — didn't perform well either. They managed to take fourth place in the group.


The newcomers astonished most: little-known team Canada Void Boys managed to surprize not only Dota 2 fans, but also their rivals. Few people predicted they'd get to the play off. Of four debut matches, they lost only one match played against the leaders - United States Minor Outlying Islands NAR, which is a great result. The winners of the open qualifiers — Peru Team Unknown — performed rather well. They had a chance to get to the play off. All they needed to do was to defeat Canada mousesports in the last match. That was no simple task. And the players weren't able to fulfill it. However, it will be very interesting to follow the future games of this team.

 

Therefore, 4 teams continued fighting over the slot at The International 2015: United States Minor Outlying Islands North American RejectsCanada Void BoysUnited States Minor Outlying Islands compLexity Gaming and Canada mousesports.

The first day of play off began with the encounter of United States Minor Outlying Islands North American Rejects and United States Minor Outlying Islands compLexity Gaming. Both teams took the first place in their respective groups, and now they had to check which one was stronger. The viewers expected a tense fight. However, the game was a one-way encounter so to say. United States Minor Outlying Islands compLexity Gaming was dominating in practically every aspect of the game. It took a bit more than 1,5 hours to for complexity to defeat the rival. United States Minor Outlying Islands NAR dropped to the losers' brackets. Whereas United States Minor Outlying Islands coL became the first team of the qualifiers to provide a slot at The International 2015.


The second match had a similar scenario. Canada mousesports became an insurmountable obstacle for Canada Void Boys. The difference in performance level and team interactions was decisive. Two easy victories of the "mice" provided them a pass to the lower brackets final.


The match of United States Minor Outlying Islands North American Rejects and Canada mousesports divided Dota 2 fans into 2 opposing groups. This was no surprize, since both teams compound of the well-known players. The match was much expected, since one of the rivals was to leave the play off immediately after the defeat. Canada mousesports had advantage. Many fans still cannot understand why the "mice" participated in the American qualifiers instead of the European ones. We won't describe the match in details. The games were most beautiful. So, if for some reason you missed them, we highly recommend watching the record of the third match at least.

 

Record of the decisive match


United States Minor Outlying Islands North American Rejects became the winner of the match. Some fans were astonished, while others took it for granted. Anyway, we won't see Germany Black^ at The International 2015. This is surely a serious strike on his gaming career. Canada mousesports are unlikely to be capable of retaining their squad after the termination of the tournament. However, let us not get too far in our predictions.


The qualifiers' grand final will be perhaps most remarkable for a huge pause in the end of the first match. This was due to a new update, made by Valve. The udpdate added a long-waited Treasure with the items of Immortal quality. Due to a huge wave of users entering Dota, the servers began to lag heavily.  In such conditions, the teams couldn't continue the game and were to wait for the situation to be solved. United States Minor Outlying Islands North American Rejects demanded that the match should be postponed, while United States Minor Outlying Islands compLexity Gaming wanted to finish the encounter that day. 


The waiting was too long. The pause worsened the condition of United States Minor Outlying Islands NAR, which was very tired after the match against Canada mousesports. Eventually, the lags stopped, and the match continued. However, in a couple of minutes the "gg" was written and United States Minor Outlying Islands coL got their first victory. The ramaining matches of the series aren't worth mentioning. United States Minor Outlying Islands NAR was losing and couldn't oppose to the confident performance of coL, which was in a great gaming shape during the match. It took only 21 minutes to defeat the rival in the second match and 20 minutes to defeat the rival for the third time and obtain the slot at TI.

 

The emotions of the winners are beyond control

 

At 3:0 score, United States Minor Outlying Islands compLexity Gaming became the winners of the Grand Final and the participant of The International 2015. In the beginning of May, the squad underwent changes,  Canada MoonMeander and Israel Simbaaa (aka Fly) joining it. The performance of the team has substantially changed ever since. The change was very positive, as we see.


As concerns United States Minor Outlying Islands North American Rejects, they should be satisfied with the results. The epic battle of Wild Card matches over the last TI 2015 lot is waiting for them. It will be very hard to win there, as the rivals will be most likely even stronger compared to those at the American qualifiers.

 


This is it - the American qualifiers are over. And now it's time for the most interesting part - the European qualifiers will start today at 12:00 CEST. Don't miss it!
