The Mid-Season Invitational 2021 will soon be upon us and we now know the teams that have booked their slot so far.

We are less than a month away from the upcoming MSI 2021 in Reykjavík, Iceland, slated to begin on the 6th to the 23rd of May. As it stands, six of the 12 teams have already finished with their regional tournaments and have secured their slots in the group stages.

Here is how it looks:

The group stage for MSI 2021.

We will be updating the article as we get closer to the event and when more teams finalise their slots for MSI 2021. Here are the teams that have qualified so far.

  • Cloud 9 (LCS Spring 2021 – North America)
  • DWG.KIA (LCK Spring 2021 – Korea)
  • MAD Lions (LEC Spring 2021 – Europe)
  • Infinity Esports (LLA Opening 2021 – Latin America)
  • DetonatioN FocusMe (LJL Spring 2021 – Japan)
  • Pentanet.GG (LCO Split 1 2021 – Oceania)

While some of the names on this list were expected to make the grade, there were some others that may surprise you. One of them is MAD Lions, who managed to overcome all odds and take the title as well as the MSI 2021 slot for the EU region. This is also the first time that the representative from the EU region is neither G2 Esports nor Fnatic.

The LEC Spring Split 2021 was full of surprises with  Martin “Rekkles” Larsson of G2 Esports taking home the tournament MVP for the fourth time in a row. Sadly, it still wasn’t enough for them to make the cut as they lost to Rogue in the loser bracket finals.

Group A Group B Group C
LPL LEC (MAD Lions) LCK (DWG.KIA)
VCS PCS LCS (Cloud 9)
LCL TCL LLA (Infinity Esports)
LCO (Pentanet.GG) CBLOL LJL (DetonatioN FocusMe)

So far, only Group C has been finalised with all four teams already making it through. Group A and B will be interesting to look out for, considering most of it is already in the grand finals or awaiting their opponents.

We are still waiting on six more regional tournaments to finish, which should be happening this coming weekend. Be sure to watch this space as we will be updating in the days to come!

Triumph, TeamOne secure final cs_summit 8 closed qualifier spots

Avatar

Published

on

Triumph and TeamOne have claimed victory in the second cs_summit 8 open qualifier, besting Third Impact and Imperial, respectively, to earn the final spots in the closed stage which will run from May-14-18 and offer four spots in the North American Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event.

After easing through the early stages of the bracket, Alan “⁠Shakezullah⁠” Hardeman‘s side faced strong contention from SKDC in the first best-of-three round, managing to narrowly secure a victory in two maps to meet Imperial for a spot in the closed stage.

The Brazilian roster had fallen early on in the previous qualifier, and despite mustering a better run this time around, they were unable to prevail over Triumph, who opened the series strong with a Mirage win before bouncing back from losing their map pick by edging out a 16-13 win on Nuke to advance.

Cooper was the highest-rated player for Triumph against Imperial

TeamOne, who suffered a similar fate to their countrymen in their last qualifier bid, were able to claim redemption for themselves as they fought past Party Astronauts in a three-map series, and wasted little time in securing their closed qualifier spot by trouncing Third Impact 16-5 on Inferno and Nuke in the ensuing round.

Four spots at cs_summit 8 will be up for grabs through the closed qualifier, which will also mark the return of Extra Salt and paiN to North America, as well as GODSENT‘s first appearance in the region after playing in Europe for the first portion of the year.

The complete team list for the closed qualifier consists of:

What does Rook’s armor do in Rainbow Six Siege?

Avatar

Published

on

Rainbow Six Siege features a diverse cast of operators with different abilities and tools to help their team. Some are tedious and tough to master, while others provide excellent support and are easy to use. Rook, one of the original operators in Siege, is a perfect example of the latter. 

Rook’s armor plates provide an excellent boost to teammates that can make a difference in gunfights. But a lot of players aren’t familiar with what the plates actually do.

Rook can place a bag full of armor plates each round that he and his teammates can pick up. Players can only pick up one armor plate at a time and can grab a plate at any point during a round. 

The plates provide a 20-percent armor boost to the user without penalty, which is an incredible boost for a team. The plates also guarantee players will enter the down-but-not-out stage when damaged instead of instantly dying. But a headshot will still instantly kill a player even if they are wearing Rook’s armor. 

If a player is picked up by a teammate, they will lose the armor plate. But they can pick up another plate if there are plates available. Rook’s Armor Pack can be destroyed by enemies, so avoid waiting long to pick it up. Also, avoid shooting it, since friendly fire can also destroy the pack. 

Rook is an excellent choice for new players because he is available by default and his ability is easy to use. Just ping the armor pack to let your teammates know it is available, and they will have a slight advantage for the rest of the round.

TOTW 33 Predictions FIFA 21: Who’s Getting in?

TOTW 33 predictions for FIFA 21 are coming in as fans prepare for yet another Wednesday content drop in Ultimate Team.

Team of the Week cards are more or less irrelevant at this point in the year for actual gameplay. Yes, they’re still required in Squad Building Challenges here and there, but fans are more concerned with what those particular SBCs are and which Team of the Season cards they’re working into their teams. Especially considering TOTS cards replaced TOTW items in FUT Champions rewards at the start of the promotion.

Still, expect EA Sports to eventually release a repeatable TOTW upgrade SBC at some point in the rest of the FUT cycle. Perhaps they’ll even make it 84+ overall.

Here are some favorites for TOTW 33 in FIFA 21:

Expect there to be a decent amount of Premier League players in this TOTW considering the PL TOTS squad just left packs. The headliner of the group should more than likely be Robert Lewandowski. Although, if the Bundesliga TOTS squad is next, he will miss out considering he’ll be featured in that promotion and there cannot be two special versions of him in packs at the same time. Same goes for Sancho.

TOTW 33 will be announced and released May 12 at 1 p.m. ET.

5 Best AD Carries in League of Legends Patch 11.10

League of Legends

The AD carry role in League of Legends Patch 11.10 is one of the pivotal roles in the game. Teams look to their AD carries as the focal point of damage and their main job is to take down the enemy’s front line so that the backline doesn’t stand a chance. In 11.10 there are a couple of changes in the bot lane but none that will drastically influence the landscape of the role.

Here are the five best AD carries in League of Legends Patch 11.10.

Jinx

Even though she received a nerf in 11.10 Jynx is still the best AD carry in the game by a long shot. She does overwhelming damage and has a ridiculous attack range thanks to her rockets.

Caitlyn

Caitlyn was a star in 11.9 and that’s going to continue in 11.10. She’s able to pin down enemies with her traps and deal big damage with her ultimate. With the right support pairing she’s a nightmare in the bot lane

Jhin

What Jhin lacks in movement speed he makes up for with huge attack damage. Players that pick up this champion must be prepared because your performance as Jhin will be entirely dependent on whether you’re able to hit skill shots. But if you can, no one will be able to stand up to you.

Kog’Maw

Kog’Maw got a few tweaks last patch that has helped him moving into 11.10. Thanks to the mana reduction on his E his harass is at an all-time high. Kog’Maw is now a bully in the bot lane and moving forward this will be the case in 11.10.

Samira

As one of the most polarizing champions in the game, Samira’s spot on the list could be argued. But many would agree that she deserves to be here. Samira players dominate matchups once they hit their power spikes and in 11.10 it’ll be more of the same.
