FPL-C was not without controversy at the end of the month, with learning of allegations of bribery pointing towards Amgalan "genghsta" Nemekhbayar attempting to pay off players to not queue for FPL-C so that he could retain his spot at the top of the standings and qualify for FPL. This was proven to be true, with genghsta being dealt a three-month ban from FACEIT and a trio of players who accepted money being banned for one month each.

Four receive bans stemming from FPL-C bribery

Fortunately, the FPL Challenger division filled those holes quite quickly, with the FPL-C Qualifier concluding two days ago and awarding five players with a spot in the league. Among them is former Western Pro League member Blake "Firestar" Houston, who remained in first place for the majority of the day before he was pushed down into second by Dor "w0rblas" Skakun, who ended the qualifier in first place having won 10 of his 14 matches.

The five players to gain spots in FPL-C through the qualifier are:

Rank Player Points
