EEU Qualifiers look spicy
The EEU region's strongest forces Team Spirit and BetBoom Team have both received a direct invite, thus they won't compete in the qualifiers.
A prominent name in the qualifiers is Virtus.pro. VP had an impressive performance at TI12, becoming the only team that managed to take a game off of eventual champions, Team Spirit. This shows how well they understand the EEU gameplay and they certainly come into this qualifiers as the heavy favorites.
Eyes are also on Yellow Submarine, who has a young prodigy on board. Yellow Submarine fields a position one player, Satanic, who may be the 15-year-old player that was highlighted on Reddit five months ago.
According to the Reddit thread, the teenager holds 12K MMR - calling him the "next SumaiL". It'll be interesting to see how Yellow Submarine does with his presence.
