Another Major participation for Chaos E.C.?
The Chaos Esports Club is the South American team with the most DPC points at the moment. Having participated in both The Kuala Lumpur Major and the most recent Chongqing Major, the team sits in 12th place with 225 DPC points and is therefore one of the contenders for the qualification for this years' The International.
Only a few days before their 9 - 12th finish in China, the organization signed the current roster with Danylo 'KINGRD' Nascimento, Rasmus 'rASmus' Fillipsen, Omar 'w33haa' Aliwi, Otávio 'tavo' Gabriel and William 'hFnk3' Medeiros from the Brazilian organization paiN Gaming.
Chaos E.C. will be one of the favorites to make it to the DreamLeague Season 11 Major in Sweden. In group B of the closed qualifier, they will face Demolition Boys who gained their first 20 DPC points at The Bucharest Minor and the two full Brazilian squads Jesus e Amigos and Rei do Picole.
Can Thunder Predator replicate their Chongqing performance?
Group A of the qualifier also has a huge favorite in Thunder Predator. Just like Chaos E.C., the Peruvians made it into the second round of the Lower Bracket at the Chongqing Major by beating CIS representative NoPangolier.
To take a huge step on their way to the next Major, Thunder Predator has to beat Infamous, SG e-sports and Gorillaz - Pride. Their first match will be against the Brazilian team.
The top two teams of each group will advance to the Upper Bracket of the qualifier while the bottom two teams will be placed in the Lower Bracket. The two finalists qualify for DreamLeague Season 11. The matches start on Friday at 3 pm CET.
Which two teams from South America will make it to the next Major?
