Main regional qualifiers to next Major by Valve came to end shaping up the list of participants who will clash in the fight for the event's $3,000,000 prize fund

Yesterday we saw finish of the The Boston Major qualifiers with teams from Europe, North America, China and Southeast Asia. They determined 8 teams joining 8 invited teams in Boston where they will fight over a lion share of the $3,000,000 prize fund.

The qualifiers turned out to be really intense and full of upsets. Battle for the spots at the next tournament from Valve got really massive. Teams from different regions even jumped into "neighbour" qualifiers to get one more chance to get through. Among them are

 Prodota Gaming,
 Kaipi,
 Team Empire and
 Power Rangers but it didn’t really help them that much.

The biggest upset of the qualifiers must be

 Team Secret getting eliminated by
 Virtus.Pro in the Losers Final of the European Qualifier #1. But
 Fnatic with Mushi's squad who got 3-4 place at TI6 also came up as a surprise to many when they lost to
 WG.Unity in the Losers bracket of the Open SEA Qualifier. And let's not forget about
 Natus Vincere who got a direct invitation to the Main European Qualifier. Unfortunately, Ukrainian team left the tournament during the round-robin group stage ending the main European qualifier with 2-7 record.
