Yellow Submarine go through the entire closed qualifier, get totally fucked over by Epic's unreasonable decision-making at the final step; but still are able to pull off the Division 2 -> play-in redemption story. pic.twitter.com/aNrvOtdEk9
While SumaiL and his team-mates made it into the playoffs last second after finishing 8th in a tiebreaker, Yellow Submarine won their division quite dominantly with eight victories in nine games. Then happened, what bound to happen: both teams met in a best-of-three to determine who'd make it into the playoffs.
Yaroslav 'Miposhka' Naidenov and his squad made clear that they deserve to qualify for the next round by beating Just Error with 2-0 – the match took barely an hour.
Nigma, OG and Liquid advance as well
In the other three games, meanwhile, the Division 1 teams proved why they deserve their spot in the playoffs. Neither Nigma, Team Liquid nor OG lost a single game.
With that, all eight playoff teams have been determined. While the four stacks from the Play-in's are seede in the Lower Bracket, Team Secret and the other three top teams from the group stage start in the Upper Bracket.
Which team will win EPIC League?
