CR4ZY and FURIA have finished second in the American and European Minors, therefore granting both a place in the StarLadder Major Main qualifier. Both teams will join the first-place finishers mousesports and NRG.

CR4ZY began well with a hard fought victory over Sprout, 16-13 on Train. However, the team maintained their momentum and ultimately took down NoChance 2-0.

In the upper bracket, CR4ZY faced a setback, as the Danish-side North beat them 2-0 in a close game. In the lower bracket, CR4ZY bounced back in style by beating Fnatic 2-0. Finally, the team had a rematch against North, and booked their spot to the Major by taking their revenge. This time around, they dispatched of North with ease, beating North 2-0.

On the other hand, FURIA had a rough start in its group, as the team lost to third-place finishers and Brazilian rivals INTZ in a best-of-one. However, FURIA immediately recovered and beat both eUnited and Luminosity 2-0 in best-of-three games.

Once in the upper bracket, FURIA lost to NRG 2-0 in an intense game, forcing the team into the lower bracket. The Brazilians eventually beat the Sharks 2-0 and defeated INTZ in a close rematch 2-1. 

Since both FURIA and CR4ZY picked up the last two spots for a direct qualification to the StarLadder Major qualifier, this leaves third place teams North and INTZ in the Minor Play-In for their final chance to get into the StarLadder Major 2019.
