American Qualifiers | TI 4

The International  American Qualifiers is being held on May 12, 2014 up to May 15, 2014. There has been a lot of confusion on the American qualifiers.  There were supposed to be only 10 invited teams for the qualifiers, but 2 were disqualified for making some roster changes, namely Revenge eSports and Osiris Gaming.  They were replaced by Isurus Gaming and Shadows of the Past but in the last minute Revenge eSports was allowed rejoin the qualifier by going to their old line-up. As a result instead of 10 teams competing for one slot in for the American qualifiers we now have 11 teams raring for a chance at big money in Seattle.

The American qualifiers has an initial group stage in which each of the teams will face each other in a single round robin with the top 4 teams going into the next phase with a double elimination, best of three format.  The top 2 teams are seeded in to the higher bracket and the bottom 2 into the lower bracket.

The 11 teams invited to the qualifiers and the countries they represent are:

  • CNB e-Sports Club – Brazil
  • Shadows of the Past – Canada/USA
  • Team eHug – USA
  • Isurus Gaming – Argentina
  • Sneaky Nyx Assassins – USA
  • Team Liquid – USA
  • No Earthspirit – USA
  • Top5 – USA
  • North American Rejects – USA
