Copa Elite Six Key Takeaways

W7m dominates the stage

W7m Esports has secured a berth in the Charlotte Major after defeating FURIA Esports 2-0 on April 27th.

Despite competing on two defensive-sided maps, Oregon and Clubhouse, w7m esports managed to win by dominating the aggressive side. Diego "Kheyze" Zanello spearheaded the push for the bulls with two outstanding performances, maining Finka's and Zofia's LMGs.

W7m esports success in offence should serve as a caution to the team's potential opponents in Charlotte, since the roster's defensive metrics throughout the Brasileiro have been impressive. The team's defensive victory rate was about 80% just before their last encounter.

Regardless of the squad's statistics or server sensations, w7m esports is a team with no international experience beforehand. Upcoming May Major Charlotte will be the roster's first time outside their region or in other terms, their comfort zone. Expectations for this lineup must remain reasonable, yet they have a fairly good chance of beating Team Liquid with their current performance.

Meanwhile the loser FURIA Esports faced Pampas in another attempt and managed to qualify for the Major. They will be facing Team oNe eSports. FURIA performed way better than oNe in the Internationals and overall have better stats, but oNe eSports will surely give them a hard time if they want to face the grand finalist of the upper bracket.

Brazil's squads had a strong advantage and overcame the South American sides.  It's worth mentioning that South America has never won a BO3 match against a Brazilian roster in an official Siege tournament, with Estral Esports' Mexican squad being the first non-Brazilian roster to achieve it back in January 2021, versus INTZ.

Team Liquid qualifies for Charlotte Major

Following Team Liquid's setback in Copa Elite Six Stage 3, where the lineup finished sixth and lost out on the Sweden Major, a more seasoned Liquid clinched their spot at the Charlotte Major with a 2-0 victory against Team oNe.

The veteran squad had no trouble overcoming oNe's golden side, as a solid first half on Clubhouse put Liquid up 5-1. Three rounds later, the blue roster secured the opening map of the series.

Villa followed a similar plot. Despite considerable pushback from Team oNe, Team Liquid managed to execute three of the roster's four strikes. Liquid qualified for the first Major of the year in a flash.

Liquid's greatest player on the server was Luccas "Paluh" Molina, while Team oNe's best player was Leonardo "D4sh" Lopes.
