On the other side, Team Spirit had a much harder task. They recieved direct invite to a first round of CIS qualifiers where they have defeated Spartak Esports 2-0. Then coming up from Loser’s finals taking their revenge on Effect by taking the series 2-0. Right after that, in the first semi-finals of stage 2, they have encountered mighty Natus Vincere. Ukraine squad had a great overall perfomance over the past several weeks. How hard it was to defeat them? Shows that game 1 lasted 67 minutes. While taking a short break after game 1, Team Spirit came back even stronger in game 2 where they closed the series in less then 30 minutes.

Moving up to Southeast Asia Qualifiers. Mineski faced off against the unstoppable Fnatic. Even thought Fnatic had overall better pick in game 1 but Mineski somehow have found their way. WIth last pick Phantom Lancer, Mushi pulled out the amazing perfomance and topped the scoreboard with 28 k net worth and 7/0/8 KDA. Coming up in game 2, Mineski picked famous Luna + Shadow Demon combo. Game 2 actually was really back and forward, especially until mid to late game, where they started slowly to take control of the game and series.
