After a long wait, we've finally taken that first step back towards what we've always been working for - to compete and win on all levels. EHOME has qualified for Bucharest Minor, and here is to more and growing success to come! pic.twitter.com/RRZT8jf4nm— EHOME (@EHOMECN) December 5, 2018
It's been a long time coming for the Chinese org, with The Boston Major being their last top-tier tournament. They’ve had several near misses in qualifying for DPC events but have seen an uptick in form this season — claiming wins in the WESG 2018 China Finals and the Asia Pro League.
Their path to the Minor was not an easy one. They lost their first match to eventual qualifiers Keen Gaming, but showed great character rebound with a comeback 2-1 win over Royal Never Give Up in the first round of the Losers’ Bracket.
In the Losers’ Final they stepped things up — their first game in the 2-0 win over Team Root lasted just 24 minutes. Game 2 was longer, at 50 minutes, but EHOME collected more kills than there were minutes — with ASD’s Skywrath Mage accounting for 23 of the 53 in total.
EHOME join Keen Gaming at The Bucharest Minor, and will be looking to win to cement a place in The Chongqing Major on home territory.
