More commonly seen on analyst desks around the globe, Brian 'BananaSlamJamma' Canavan will now appear on your screens as a player after his mix team, Rooons, made it through North American qualifiers for DreamLeague Season 10.

Lower bracket run seals the deal

Most recently on the desk in Vancouver for The International 2018, BSJ had been part of Leviathan’s attempt to qualify for Valve’s showpiece event. Now, he has assembled a team to conquer the Minor, and the first obstacle has been surmounted.

compLexity Gaming were up first, and it was Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao and his teammates who asserted their early dominance. A pair of games of under half an hour each were all it took for BSJ and his ROOONS side to be left facing the Lower Bracket.

However, a 2-0 win over Mexican side Team Xolotl restored their confidence and kept them in with a shot of the Minor. Their final challenge was a match against beastcoast, and despite a rapid loss in Game Two, they took the series to seal their places in Stockholm.

compLexity looking strong in qualifying

With three new players for the 2018-19 season, North American org compLexity are looking for a strong season. EternalEnvy and former VGJ.Storm star JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu were brought in, and in taking down BSJ’s ROOOMS they looked like they would make it with ease.

In their Winners’ Final against TEAM TEAM, however, things weren’t as straightforward. They took the first game inside half an hour, but then lost the second convincingly. However, they bounced back to take the third game and series, sealing their invite to DreamLeague.

Timado and Infamous take SA win

In South America, it was Peruvian organisation Infamous who took the spoils. Having revamped their squad in the off-season, bringing in Enzo 'Timado' Gianoli, Adrian 'Wisper' Cesperes and Joel Mori 'MoOz' Ozambela, they knocked over all who stood in their way to claim their seat aboard the plane to Stockholm.

In their first match, they edged past Thunder Predator with Wisper going massive in Game One. Next up was Demolition Boys, the all-Peruvian roster taking Game One off Infamous before they roared back to win the next two.

After a Lower Bracket recovery for Braxstone, the Grand Final was a repeat match-up. However, it was to prove less close of a series, with Infamous taking a pair of 45-minute games to wrap things up and earn their place at the Minor.

Can compLexity go all the way in Sweden with home-player Limmp?
