The ELEAGUE Major Qualifier continued today in Atlanta where 16 teams are still vying for a spot in Counter Strike’s ELEAGUE Major in Atlanta next month.
The teams are competing in the second round of the Swiss style tournament with yesterday’s respective winners playing each other, as well as yesterday’s first round losers. Today’s winners will move on to a play in match for the major tomorrow while today’s losers will play in two different tiers of the bracket, respectively. For the 0-2 teams, any loss will send them home empty-handed.
