IEM XI Katowice closed qualifiers: Day 2
The second day of the closed qualifiers for IEM Season XI World Championships will be starting soon and we will be looking forward towards qualifying for the main event which is going to be held in Katowice, Poland.
After defeating Tricked Esport with a 2-0 score, we will be hoping to win against Heroic to qualify to the event. In case we lose, we would be left with a do-or-die situation as we would have to win two consecutive best-of-three matches to actually qualify for the event then.
The upper bracket semi finals match will start at 15:00 CET and it would be a great match to watch nonetheless as the Danish roster is coming in with a victory over Epsilon eSports and the new Team EnVyUs roster; they had a great match against the French squad as it went to the third map with multiple overtimes but despite Team EnVyUs having screaM as a stand-in, they weren’t able to get the right chemistry and lost.
In case we fail to win against Heroic, then we would have to face the winner of mousesports vs Epsilon eSports at 18:00 CET and then either G2 Esports or Team EnVyUs/Tricked Esports at 21:00 CET. We will be hoping to win our opening match to avoid that and qualify for the event easily.
