Last night, the lower bracket kings made another perfect run through elimination series to claim the second NA slot for the DreamLeague Season 13 Major. Their flawless execution set back Ninjas in Pyjamas and Fighting PandaS, who will now have to fight for a spot into the WePlay! Bukovel Minor.
For NiP, this is the second Major qualifier in a row where they fall short, and it’s happening after the team decided to swap regions in the aftermath of the first set of Dota Pro Circuit qualifiers. NiP decided after the MDL Chengdu Major to move from Europe, which is regarded to be the most stacked region, to North America, vastly considered one of the weakest, at least for the time being. However, NA lost one slot with this second round of DPC qualifiers, and with Chaos, EG, Fighting PandaS and J.Storm all fighting for the two tickets, the competition became pretty though.
South America concluded its full qualifier process for the second Major of the season with beastcoast emerging victorious over Ego Boys in the lower bracket finals.
With the DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major regional qualifiers officially over, the torch is passed to WePlay! To host the battle for one of the eight slots into the Bukovel Minor.
