Ten teams started the group stage matches at BTS Pro Series Season 3 : Americas but only eight managed to get further into the competition and secure a playoff spot.
Unfortunately for Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao and co, Team Zero’s 7-11 overall game score was not enough to save them from an early elimination. Team Zero was formed in the aftermath of business associate’s disbandment from earlier this month, when Clinton “Fear” Loomis decided to take a break for the rest of 2020.
With 5 games won and 13 defeats, Havan Liberty are also leaving the tournament after the group play. However, the Brazilian team exists with a new networth record attached to their name. On September 15, Havan Liberty managed to take down Thunder Predator at the end of a 73-minute game with 93,431 gold lead. Nonetheless, they are the only SA team to not make it to the playoffs, while four of their regional adversaries have actually secured an upper bracket slot.
The uncontested group leaders are Quincy Crew, who have been dominating the Americas competitions over the past several months, sitting now on 6 consecutive tournament victories. Reigning champions of the previous BTS Pro Series Americas, Quincy Crew will now have to navigate to another grand finals through an upper bracket stacked with South American teams.
Infamous, beastcoast and Team Brasil are the three other squads to join QC in the playoff upper bracket, while CR4ZY, 4 Zoomers, Thunder Predator and Infinity Esports will start in the lower bracket.
BTS Pro Series Season 3: Americas playoffs are set to begin later today, September 19 with an elimination match between CR4ZY and 4 Zoomers.
