In what was once again a terribly seeded qualification tournament, Fnatic fought in the last round against Online Kingdom . 16 minutes into the game, while the match was fairly even and the end result unknown, Kalle 'Trixi' Saarinen disconnected from the game and was unable to reconnect. Due to ESL's remake policy, the game continued and Online Kingdom hopped onto the last train for the ESL Major Series VIII Tournament.
Although it could be argued that fnatic should have taken the chance to qualify via one of the earlier qualifiers, one can only wonder about the competence of the administrators that repeatedly force top teams like Dirty Minds , Team Empire , Fnatic , Online Kingdom , Reason Gaming , Team unZ , Infused Gaming and Imperial eSports to fight it out by dumping them all into the same, stacked bracket; while less known and less talented teams get an easier run to one of the 4 qualifying spots.
The ESL Major Series VIII Heroes of Newerth Tournament, featuring a €5.000 prize pool, will continue shortly with the group stage being next on schedule.
