In what seems like a lightning-fast turnaround, the qualifiers for Challengers Elite Stage 4 are already here.

Just a week after the Toronto Open event as part of Major 3, Challengers players are back in action to try and qualify for the top event of their regular season.


Already qualified

The four teams that have already qualified earned their spots from placing in the top four in Elite Stage 3.

Toronto Ultra Academy EU

BEANS
Vortex
Furiious
Weeman

The champs of Stage 3 have been forced into another change by the London Royal Ravens. Joey “Gismo” Owen is back with the starting roster and as a result, they’ve had to make a move.

They’ve brought in Connor “Weeman” Chilton from Team WaR as their reinforcement for Stage 4.

Team WaR

Wardy
HARRY
Denza
Maple

And on the other side of the Weeman move, Team WaR have opted to bring in London sub Harry “Harry” Payne to the roster.

They’ve struggled for placements in the last couple of events and will be hoping to bounce back in this stage of the Elite.

AYM Esports

EriKBooM
SupeR
JurNii
Yako

ROKKR Academy

Mettalz
Lucky
Sukry
ReeaL

Both Spanish teams really struggled in Toronto. They’ve been found out on LAN twice this season. Heading back to their favoured online playground, they’ll no doubt be back to their best.

Both AYM and ROKKR have shared players this season, both have looked near-unbeatable at times. Can they replicate that this stage?


Teams in the qualifier

16 teams will compete in a one-day qualifier to earn places in the Elite Stage 4. They will take part in a double elimination bracket, with the hope of earning a spot amongst the best of the best.

Nixuh

JonnyW
Snake
Runner
Shaun

One of several teams having to battle the return-from-Toronto jetlag this weekend will be Nixuh. Their four-stack roster has stayed the same for a while now and that built-up chemistry will serve them well.

Invincibles

Rafi
Grad
Niall
Nolson

After a solid run in Toronto and qualification to Stage 3 of the Elite, Niall and co. are back again to try and replicate their success.

No changes for their roster as they try and make sticking together pay off for them.

Vitalize

Higgy
JC
Divvxll
Izaac

Brand New Day blew up their roster and now the new Vitalize roster is here. JCwyley and Izaac move across to team with Higgy and Divvxll for this weekend’s event.

Skelp Esports

Aroma
LewTee
Crookie
Pac

Another team to take on a former member of Brand New Day. Pac and Crookie both join Aroma and LewTee to form the new Skelp roster.

Genesis and oEleven have both found new homes for this weekend’s qualifier.

Clutch Rayn x OWL

Rezzy
Nevo
Kidzz
Twizz

Team Moon

Kels
Genesis
InfinityFPS
Dqvee

Kels and Paddy both stick together following Toronto. They pick up Genesis and the returning Dqvee. A team from all corners of the UK.

Team Aw0babobs

Chaaxter
Cobra
Breszy
abuzah

Team Aw0babobs are sticking together after a solid outing in the Toronto Open last weekend. The French have always shown prowess when it comes to online competition.

The return of Breszy from NA Challengers will no doubt be a huge boost.


 

Sileo Synes

D3
Depaa
Nadox
Clousy

Another French roster. This Sileo Synes roster looks completely different to the one that qualified for the Elite Stage 3.

The introduction of Clousy needs to be a seamless transition if they are to repeat their qualification from last time out.

Katana Ricochet

FDzE
Joqa
Keza
RossJ

Both Katana Gaming and Ricochet have come together to put together a monster roster for the Elite.

The two teams share their best talent with Keza looking to come into the side and make something great happen.

Average Joe’s

Arian
Caprillux
Focal
Niff Naff Noo

Dizzy’s Rascals

Henry
Mythix
bbconor
DizzyTT

Dizzy and co. have been one of the EU teams that has shown constant progression in the last few weeks. They crashed out of the Toronto Open thanks to a map five, round 11 loss to Team WaR.

They’ll try and bounce back from that to qualify for back-to-back Elite stages.

Incentive Resistance

Toki
TDrills
AliFSA
VriZix

Lizard Squad

Seedy
Gifted
Theo
Hunter


The Elites

Kez
DecimatR
Kayze
BenW

Another mix-n-match team of names that were in Toronto last weekend. Kez and co were double-rounded in Canada but will be keen to show their quality this weekend as part of the Challengers Elite Stage 4 qualifier.

Team Scotland

JT
Hawqeh
Traudey
Jambo

Italian Mafia

Nako
MJ
Carestia
FeleXY

These are all the rosters attempting to qualify for Challengers Elite Stage 4 in EU. The NA region has it’s own separate version of the tournament.
