Future Perfect won their lobby on the final day of EMEA Pro League today. Their performance earned them a sixth place on the league standings and a check for $6,000.
However, teams that were more consistent throughout the Pro League had higher paydays: Guild Esports earned a $12,500 check for third place in the overall tournament, just a few points behind EMEA Gambit and Alliance. . And 69iQ Esports reached fourth place and $10,500.
The defending champion ALGS SCARZ held on to 20th place, finishing in a poor 14th place but earning a spot in the Playoffs. Not every talented team is so lucky. The heroes of LAN Russia 789 failed to make it through the qualifiers, finishing just outside the point threshold. And the popular SoloQGoats finished in 33rd place out of 40 teams in the Pro League. That lousy performance means they’ll have to go through the open qualifiers again to get back to the top Top.
Game one of the competition ended outside The Dome, where Rebel, MajorPushers and Nemesis made the top three. Rebel fell first and Nemesis defeated MajorPushers before a single player. However, Nemesis was unable to reach their final enemy, who was safe behind The Dome’s sheer walls, and the team perished in the area. While in second, they got 14 kills, putting them in first place against MajorPushers.
Nemesis really needed to perform well today to earn a spot in the revised Regional Qualifiers. Although they could not qualify, they at least avoided relegation from the Pro League.
Kungarna won game two. They stay under radar while the 69iQ and FiGVam battle each other, then rush in to clear the weak enemy. Kungarna started the day in 20th place overall, in danger of missing out on the Playoffs, but that win allowed them some important breathing room. FiGVam runner-up got 16 kills and earned 25 points overall, earning more than the winners. FiGVam started the day in 30th place and in danger of relegation. Their solid performance today led to 24th place and helped them keep their place in the Pro League.
Game three ended Harvester. Future Perfect had a great spot in the final round, in the high position with their rear area. They control a large amount of vital real estate and hit opponents with ease, winning by 15 kills for a massive 27 point game. YungMoneyGuild came in second.
Game four went to YungMoneyGuild, who built momentum from game three. With those results, YungMoneyGuild is well on their way to avoiding relegation, after they earned just one point after five days of playing in the Pro League.
Entering game 5, Future Perfect led the table, with YungMoneyGuild in second place and the talented Kungarna team in third. YungMoneyGuild lost to nearly all of the Fragment East finalists of game five, but they were trailed further by winner 69iQ as the final round closed. That leaves the overall ranking unchanged, with Future Perfect leaders 10 points ahead of second place YungMoneyGuild.
Myztro Gaming, who started day three overall and are vying for a $30,000 prize for first place in the tournament, entered the final game of the Pro League final. They finished in seventh place with a check for $6,000, but could have done more with a stronger performance today.
In game 6, the defending ALGS champions SCARZ, 789 and Myztro Gaming all had to spend one final match at the Heat Station. Although SCARZ and 789 seemed to be in better positions, Myztro overcame both teams and took a 27-point win.
But it doesn’t make a difference. That last game did not change the upper half of the field. Future Perfect is at the top. YungMoneyGuild clung to second place, but that wasn’t enough to get them a spot in the Regional Qualifiers or any cash for all their hard work. However, the teams that come in short will get another chance on a big payday in the second phase of the Pro League, which begins in February 2022.
