In Minnesota, just five EU teams represented the region. At the Toronto Open, a massive 13 teams will cross the Atlantic.
These teams will give everything they’ve got to show that they deserve to take home the $24,000 prize for winning the event.
Toronto Ultra Academy EU
The winners of the most recent EU Challengers Elite. The Ultra EU Academy will come into the event with their tails up having finally gotten some good time together as a four.
Nixuh x ACCL
These four won the ACCL’s Toronto Cup in order to book their tickets to Toronto. They’ll now go into the event representing EU’s biggest league organiser outside of the Challengers system.
They’re also repping South African organisation Nixuh.
AYM Esports are undoubtedly one of the favourites from EU to make a deep run into the Toronto Open.
They made a surprisingly early exit from the Minnesota tournament but they have really been finding form as of late.
Mystaken’s roster for Toronto is an underrated one. Kels is one of the best female players in the world and will be determined to show her ability.
They could definitely cause some upsets, especially after a strong Challengers Cup #11, losing out to Toronto Ultra Academy EU for T8.
One of the most experienced EU teams heading out to the Toronto Open. Gabe “Aroma” Hamshaw wasn’t in Toronto and after winning the ACCL Spring Invitational he’ll come into the event with some LAN momentum behind him.
Rokkr Academy, fresh on the back of taking home Challengers Cup #11, will have their tails up. They may have a had a disappointing Elite Stage playoffs but that won’t bother them.
They will want to go all the way in Toronto, putting the names on the map for the Spanish CoD scene.
Finalists of the Minnesota Open, Team WaR have kind of struggled since. They couldn’t really get a foothold in the Pro-Am and were eliminated early in the Elite Stage 3 playoffs.
Back on LAN though, this team can work wonders. They’ll be ready and raring to prove themselves as top challengers for the title once again.
One of the five teams that were at the Minnesota Open in April, Invincibles are an Elite-level Challengers side.
They have plenty of competing experience and the returning Nolson has been a boost to their squad since he came back into CoD competitively.
Brand New Day
Brand New Day are relatively new as an org. That doesn’t mean you should rule out this absolute demon squad from doing great things at the Toronto Open.
They had a very decent run at the ACCL Spring Invitational and the LAN experience can only do them wonders heading into this one.
Josh “FDzE” and co. had a very good run during the Challengers Cup #11. The last chance to practice before the Toronto Open and the team impressed.
They certainly have the ability to show up in the 6ix and cause an upset or two.
Allez les Francais. The French team of Cobra, Breszy, abuzah and Chaaxter wasn’t sure that they’d be travelling over to Toronto but a last-minute purchase of a team pass means that they’ll show their unique pace and quality on the big stage.
Another team that is synonymous with the EU amateur scene. Dizzy’s Rascals were part of Stage 3 of the Elite.
They couldn’t quite make the playoffs but the change of Wailers leaving the team and Mythix coming in could provide a bounce for a solid performance in Toronto.
niff naff noo
Fronted by Iron Blood Gaming coach Arian, Average Joe’s have the capability to go far. Game knowledge aplenty in this roster.
They could definitely spring a few surprises and are another roster looking to do EU proud.
