Infamous and Gorillaz-Pride claim the Americas qualifiers slots for ESL One Thailand Online

ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas online battle for the tournament title is set to begin this week, on the 8th of August, with a total of eight teams entering the competition.

Peru representatives, Infamous and Gorillaz-Pride are the latest additions to the team list, both claiming their spot into the event via regional qualifiers. While Infamous have been more active during the recent online regional events, having played just a couple of weeks ago at OGA Dota PIT Season 2, for Gorillaz-Pride this will mark their first appearance outside domestic tournaments since the pandemic crisis hit the world.

Given their lack of appearance, Gorillaz had to take the long road of open qualifiers for a chance at getting into the ESL One Thailand main event and they’ve done it without dropping a single game up to the closed qualifiers finals, where they got bested 3-0 by infamous.

Nonetheless, the closed qualifiers offer two spots and Gorillaz-Pride bounced back in the lower bracket finals where they took down Omega Gaming.

ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas participating teams:

  • CR4ZY (direct invite)
  • business associates (direct invite)
  • 4 Zoomers (direct invite)
  • Quincy Crew (direct invite)
  • beastcoast (direct invite)
  • Thunder Predator (direct invite)
  • Infamous (qualified)
  • Gorillaz-Pride (qualified)

The Americas competition will take place August 8-30 with $65,000 on the line. The Asia scene will enter the action on the 20th of August with a total of 12 teams fighting for a share of the $135,000, but the direct invites and the qualifiers participants are yet to be revealed.
