We saw 32 community teams entering the TRLC Open Qualifier. Two teams would qualify for League Play, and as part of providing ongoing opportunities for the oceanic scene, join 4 top teams invited back from Season 2!
This season, the OCE teams are stirring as RLCS ends and players are looking towards RLCS Season 4. This left everyone unsure of who will be able to qualify, but in the end two powerful teams emerged as clear winners of the open qualifier, Legacy eSports and Pale Horse eSports.
Legacy eSports (SOMA, Plitz, ZeN)
Running through the competition while only dropping 2 games over the entire day, Legacy eSports brought some incredibly offensive plays, and quick midfield passes. While this brand new roster might have some room to improve on their rotations, the experience of all three of these players make it no surprise that they qualified, but will they challenge the top 4?
Pale Horse eSports (Kamii, Kia, CJCJ)
In the last few weeks, Pale Horse has risen as the team at the edge of the top 4. A meteoric rise for the team, and had them poised as the favourites to qualify first. However, Pale Horse brought two subs, xkorez and Julz to the Open Qualifiers while their core was away, and that led to many doubts on whether they could make it. It turns out that no-one had to be worried, coming in through the lower bracket and defeating Team Skyfire means that they’re looking to take a share of the $8,888 prize pool.
Some of the best plays that we've ever seen in Throwdown happened in the open qualifiers, and it excites us knowing that we haven't even started the main event yet! In the end, we saw three outstanding players, CJM, Kamii, and SOMA, all being standout players for their team.
In the end, the MVP went to CJM, for his unconventional and highly exciting plays and incredible saves.
