AVANGAR and North Qualify for IEM Chicago
AVANGAR and North have qualified for IEM Chicago through the European qualifier.
AVANGAR went through the high road and was the first seed after defeating ENCE eSports 2-1. That left North vs. ENCE for the second seed. ENCE had already defeated North earlier in the tournament. North then went on a run through the losers' bracket before it faced ENCE one final time.
#IEM CHICAGO HERE WE COME!— North (@TheNorthIsHere) 25 августа 2018 г.
Despite being down 1-0 in maps and 1-8 on Inferno, we claw back and take the game 2-1 over @ence.
Amazing performance by @MSLcsgo on the AWP as well #OCaptainMyCaptain #HearTheRoar pic.twitter.com/6FKDqCfWfY
It didn't go as planned as North dropped the first map and was down 1-8 on Inferno before climbing back and winning the series. North has struggled of late and recently made a loan exchange with Heroic. Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen did a fantastic job in the qualifier and will be a key piece for IEM Chicago.
