When the cat’s away, the mice will play, or in other words, when Evil Geniuses go to compete in the Europe and CIS division, the South American teams take over the Americas brackets.
Four SA teams made it to the playoffs stage of the OMEGA League Americas Divine division by claiming a spot via the group stage matches and the play-in stage.
Quincy Crew and 4 Zoomers are the only two NA representatives for the playoffs, while business associates made it close to joining them, but lost the play-in stage series against the Bolivian-Peru mix of Omega Gaming. Fortunately for the NA Dota 2 fans, both QC and 4 Zoomers have secured an upper bracket spot, their adversaries for the semifinals being beastcoast and Thunder Predator respectively.
Omega Gaming and Infamous are the two SA squads that survived the play-in stage single-elimination battle and will start the playoffs journey from the lower bracket. The playoffs are set to begin tonight mid-night EEST, August 30 at 14:00 PDT.
In the meantime, Evil Geniuses, who chose to leave their region for this tournament and test themselves against the top teams in Europe and CIS, are for now leading in the Group A of Immortal division and have just one more series scheduled for the group play.
