Evil Genuises qualifies to the ROG DreamLeague playoffs

Evil Geniuses qualifies for the
ROG DreamLeague playoffs

The North American squad and Manila Masters champions 2017, Evil Geniuses, won the North American qualifier this weekend. By defeating Complexity in the final, EG has secured a spot in the ROG DreamLeague playoffs at DreamHack Winter in Sweden, December 1-4th. They join the already confirmed line-up of Newbee, Infamous and Team Secret.

With just three weeks left to the s8 playoffs, ROG DreamLeague had a busy week with both the EU/CIS league and the North American qualifier played this weekend. In the latter, four teams met in a bo3 double-elimination bracket, where Evil Geniuses proved to be the strongest team, only losing one game out of six. Evil Geniuses faced compLexity gaming twice – first in the Winner’s Finals, then later in the grand finals. compLexity started off the Winner’s Finals by taking one map from EG, then losing all the four following matches. With their 2-0 win in the finals, EG secured their spot to the ROG DreamLeague playoffs in December.

Meanwhile in EU/CIS, European Team Secret accumulate enough points to secure themselves their own spot at the playoffs. Currently in lead with 10-2, Team Secret only has one game left against Team Liquid, which won’t affect the outcome of their placement. More information about their accomplishment will be posted later. As for now, we congratulate both teams for advancing!
