After a fiery upper bracket run, SG-Esports
has qualified for The International 10 through the South American qualifier. Congratulations to:
SG defeated Team Unknown
in the grand finals. 3-1. Each game was exciting and suspenseful with no clear winner until the last vital plays. Through disciplined team fights and great patience, SG was able to come back from some dire situations in order to come out on top.
If you missed the series, game two is certainly the game to watch. 4dr’s Magnus saved game two. 4dr skewered Unknown’s Medusa practically across the entire playing field away from his team to completely break up the fight and leave the rest of Unknown helpless. He made it impossible for his opponents to breach SG’s highground.
Aside from Tavo, this will be the players and organization’s first time at TI. Costabile and 4dr were one game away from qualifying for TI8, but were denied by Tavo on Pain Gaming.
SG has certainly improved since the second season of the Dota Pro Circuit where they finished sixth with a score of 2-5. Though they weren’t able to qualify for either Major this year, they qualified when it matters most. Needless to say, the team was a little excited.
SG is one of three teams who will represent South America alongside Thunder Predator and beastcoast. This will be the most South American teams and players at any International!
The South American and Eastern European qualifiers may be over, but there are still four more spots left at the event. The International qualifiers will continue on June 30 with South East Asia and North America. Stay tuned for more information and updates!
