Team Underminer into Main Qualifier for ESL Frankfurt 2015

Comments 📅12 March 2015, 22:35

Fledgling Malaysian Dota 2 squad Team Underminer has qualified to the Main Qualifiers of the upcoming ESL One Frankfurt 2015 tournament, where they will fight to earn the only slot to the LAN finals in Germany.

The team will be battling out with fellow SEA teams First Departure5eva, and Rex Regum Qeom in the Main Qualifiers after all four teams managed to survive the SEA pre-qualifiers against 159 other teams.

Team Underminer will have its work cut out for them, however, as they will also need to compete against eight yet-to-be announced teams in the Main Qualifier to secure the only ticket to the ESL One Frankfurt tournament.

The Main Qualifiers is expected to be played at the end of March, and the winner of the battle royale will earn the chance to compete on the world stage against the world’s top teams in Frankfurt, scheduled to be held in June.

The ESL One tournament is particularly important for all competing teams, as it will be the last major competition before all-important The International 5 begins in mid-June or early July this year.
