EG.usa win KODE5 USA Qualifiers
KODE 5 is hosting their USA Preliminary Qualifiers today and tomorrow at Lethal Gamers in Dallas, Texas, with two CEVO-P teams (EG.usa and Team34) and many more competing for a spot in the USA Region Finals on March 14th.
The team that wins today will join three others, picked by the KODE5 organization, to compete for one spot at the Global Finals held in Moscow, Russia.
The tournament will start off as a group stage and move on to bracket play.
Group play saw little to no surprises, with Team 34, EG.usa, Texas Allstars, and Saevus taking top seeds of the group. Empire, PhrentiK, Netizens and DoubleTake moved on as well.
The favorite for the tournament, EG.usa, gave up only nine rounds in group play and worked their way easily through the elimination bracket, aside from a "closer than it needed to be" match against Empire. As expected, Team 34, Texas Allstars and EG.usa took the top three for the event. Only EG.usa, however, will be secured a spot in the 2009 KODE 5 USA Regional Finals.
