Team NP have qualified for ESL One Genting 2017 after their 3-0 victory over compLexity Gaming in the Americas Qualifier finals on Monday.
ESL Genting's Americas qualifier final happened directly after compLexity were eliminated from Dota Pit's Americas qualifier after losing 2-0 to Team NP. coL seemed to be suffering after that first loss, and even after some moments where it looked like they could take a foothold, Team NP dominated this best-of-five series.
NP had a flawless run through the qualifier as they defeated Elite Revenge, 2-0 in the quarterfinals, defeated Infamous 2-0 in the semifinals and then defeated coL 3-0 in the finals.
In Game 3 of the Finals between NP and coL, Justin "jk" Rosselle was replaced by Jaron "monkeys-forever" Clinton, and cited connection issues. However, after the conclusion of the match, coL announced that jk has decided to step down from the roster.
coL are the second team on through the qualifier stage after Virtus.pro advanced through the European Qualifier on Nov. 6 after a 3-2 victory over OG.
Here's what the team list for ESL Genting looks like so far:
The Southeast Asia qualifier is slated to take place on Nov. 16-21, while details on the Chinese and Malaysian qualifier are expected in the future.
ESL One Genting 2017 features a $250,000 prize pool and will take place on Jan. 6-8 at Resort World Genting in Malaysia’s Highlands.
