Here are our top 8 teams from both of the qualifiers:
The first qualifiers were won by the N.Macedonian team Mystique, they managed to qualify for Season 3 playoff stage but were defeated early by the 2nd place team The Last Jedis, we can’t wait to see what they bring to the closed qualifier stage!
We also had 2 Serbian teams qualify from the same organization, team Hoodlums and Hoodlums.Youth. They haven’t competed in season 3 and we wish them the best of luck in their first season!
The first Qualifiers also saw one more Serbian team qualify Vučićevi Lavovi, it’s sink or swim from now, give it your best!
Now from the 2nd open qualifier, we got the winners first Blessed Alphas, which is a Swedish Balkan mix team. Sounds good, and now let’s just see if they make it to the group stage! It’s definitely one of those teams that you should watch out for!
The 2nd team from those qualifiers is Team Serbia with one of the most recognizable players from the region Nikola "LeBronDota" Popović! They are considered to be the favorites for the closed qualifiers. If there are any upsets regarding this, we can only wait and see.
This qualifier also brought one Croatian team “Kaj” let’s see how will they rumble with everyone in the closed qualifier stage.
And last, but not least, we have one more Serbian team called “Scumbag”! Let’s see what kind of moves they got in store for us.
