Last Chance Qualifier teams

ROKKR Academy [1]

Sukry
Lucky
Mettalz
ReeaL

ROKKR made the conscious decision to play in this Sunday’s LCQ. They were taken out of the Worldwide [4] seed by the new Iron Blood Gaming roster.

Instead of making a roster move and taking that spot back, the squad are backing themselves to come away with the win in another online tournament.

AYM Esports [2]

ErikBooM
JurNii
Yako
SupeR

Of the two Spanish teams, AYM are the one coming into the LCQ with the most form behind them. They placed T8 in Boston and could have gone even further in the tournament.

With an average placement of 1.5 over the last two Elite Stages of the season too, they’re going to be right in the mix at the top barring any slip-ups.

Aw0babobs [3]

Chaaxter
Breszy
Cobra
abuzaah

Aw0babobs went into the Boston Open on the back of winning the Elite Stage 4 event in Europe. Buoyed by the unbelievable talent that is Paul “Breszy” Breszynski, they’ve become one of the top teams in Europe.

They may be outsiders to qualify for the tournament based on the fact that the Spanish teams exist but they will back themselves all the way throughout.

The Originals [4]

Grad
Rafi
Henry
Nolson

A team that missed out on competing in Boston but are still holding a very solid seed for the LCQ. They’ll take up the [4] seed and just squeak into the top half of the seeding.

With a slight change in their roster, with Niall no longer part of their setup, they’ll have to click immediately to make a run in the LCQ.

Katana Gaming [5]

Mythix
J0qa
Keza
FDzE

Katana Gaming went into the Boston Open with the [22] seed and delivered on their expectations with a solid finish across the water.

If they can put it together and get through their opening match against Rafi and co. then they could go deep in the LCQ.

Snackle Boxes [6]

Snakee
Shaun
Aroma
Runner

Coming off the back of their best result of the season in Boston, the confidence has to be sky high for the Snackle Boxes roster.

The roster change that they were forced into just before the Boston event has ended up helping them to their best placement of the year, finishing T16.

Adding Gabe “Aroma” Hamshaw to the roster has been an inspired choice and he has helped bring them up to speed.

Aw0babobs Academy [7]

Genesis
JonnyW
Kelsaroony
BBConor

Another team that is hitting form right at the point of the season that will work out the best for them. The got obliterated by Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson and co. in the upper bracket in Boston but their lower bracket run to a T24 finish was incredible.

They’ll have to play against ErikBooM and co. in the first round, it doesn’t get much tougher than that when coming into an event like this. It will be all about the momentum that they obtain from the first map of the series that will determine whether they can push on deep into the series.

Team 3G [8]

Niall
Rezzy
RossJ
Kidzzz

It wouldn’t be Call of Duty: Vanguard without a little bit of roster drama. Team 3G had their share of it with Nevo having to drop out of the squad after he was suspected of using wallhacks in scrims.

He’s been replaced by RossJ for the event and the team will have to make one of the best runs of the season if they are to secure themselves Champs qualification.

The Last Chance Qualifier for Champs takes place on Sunday, July 24.
