motm and the rest of the quest have earned a spot in Advanced for the upcoming season
Matthew "mCe" Elmore's the quest and Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne's BBC have qualified for ESEA Advanced Season 30 through the second Advanced qualification cup, defeating String's Llama Pack and asmr in the semifinals, respectively.
BBC were the first of the two teams to net themselves a spot in the league with a swift two-map victory over Warren "hades" Rettich's asmr. The series began on Inferno, with BBC posting a 10-5 first half that was helmed by Matthew "no_one" Congdon and David "Toy" Han. BBC brought the map to a close with a 16-7 scoreline, taking the series to Overpass.
There, asmr were able to contest for the lead in the first half, grabbing seven rounds on their CT side. This time it was Jeff "RZU" Ngo who stepped up for BBC, granting asmr just a single round in the second half as LILMAN and co. cruised to a 16-8 finish to close out the series 2-0.
the quest also secured their slot in Advanced with a 2-0 victory, although their matchup saw closer scorelines overall against Blake "Strings" Stringer's Llama Pack. Much like BBC, the quest opened up the series with a 10-5 half on the CT side of Cache, although the fragging was spread evenly across their side. String's Llama Pack were able to battle back on their own CT side for seven rounds, but it was the quest who emerged victorious with six rounds of their own to take the series to Overpass.
Once again, much like BBC's matchup, Overpass saw a closer back-and-forth brawl in the second half, with Strings and co. pulling ahead at the end of their CT side for a 9-6 lead. Once the sides swapped it was a whole different story as the quest kept the Llama Pack at bay, with Jack "xCeeD" Holiman dropping 32 frags to grant Strings' side just a single round in the second half, allowing for a 16-10 victory.
Here are the top four teams that competed in the event:
|Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne||Mattew "mCe" Elmore|
