South American Qualifier Highlights

One of the biggest surprises of the South American qualifiers was Beastcoast’s victory over BOOM. The “Wolves” not only proved to be the second most successful South American team in terms of international participation, but they also faced a team that had attended only one international tournament throughout the year: Games of Future.

The most striking aspect of this series was the outcome: the second match ended in just 13 minutes and 24 seconds. This is not only the shortest match of the South American closed qualifiers but also the shortest across all regions, breaking the previous record of sixteen minutes set by 1win against Nemiga.
