ADVERTISING:For several months, Alliance had struggled to find any success but since changing its roster to include German veteran Max 'qojqva' Broecker the team has slowly begun climbing the European rankings. Since then, Alliance managed to qualify for both ESL One Hamburg 2018 and The Chongqing Major.
Can Alliance still recover?
This set expectations reasonably high for the upcoming DreamLeague Major but so far Alliance's performance has not live up to tose early victories: The team hasn't been able to win a single game in Group B, losing to OG in two quick matches and falling to The ReaL DeaL 0:2.
Alliance still has one more shot at glory, on Tuesday they will be facing Kaban in the lower bracket.
NiP is looking strong
Meanwhile Ninjas in Pyjamas managed to surprise everyone in Group A. The team beat Vega Squadron 2:1 and even took down the reigning Major Champion, Team Secret.
Topping their group, NiP will now face OG in the Upper Bracket while Liquid is playing Secret. The European qualifiers comence today at 14:00 CET.
