Spotlights turned to the CIS region as household names like Danil “Dendi” Ishutin from Team B8 and newly-reformed Natus Vincere composed of big CIS names of Vladimir “No[o]ne” Minenko, Roman “Ramzes666” Kushnarev, and Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev all tried to get their hands on a ticket to TI. All of them failed.
It was Team Spirit who emerged victorious. They shrugged off their mediocre performance in the last Major and dominated the qualifiers without going down in the Lower Bracket. Yaroslav “Miposhka” Naidenov and co. proved their mettle when they overcame Team Empire in a hard-fought, five-game series.
