Link had a monstrous performance against Niknexus

Jaguar, a team composed of Peruvian, Colombian, and Mexican players, have topped the ESL Pro League Season 9 Latin America North Closed Qualifier after defeating Niknexus 3-1, thereby earning themselves passage to the main (and now entirely offline) event.

LA League Finalists confirmed

The South Americans made their way to the Grand Final after annihilating Kadmus7, before a nail-biter of a match against Niknexus in the Upper Bracket Final. Despite Jaguar winning that series 2-0, it was anything but easy, as they secured victory by a mere five rounds in total across both maps.

The Grand Final saw a rematch of that tense bout, with Jaguar having a 1-0 advantage due to never leaving the Upper Bracket. With an expanded veto, they removed Overpass which went to overtime in the first series, and picked Train as the final map.

VAULT roster begin search for new organization

Niknexus were able to even the series at 1-1 after a 16-8 win on Mirage, but it was Eduardo "Link" Osuna who would turn on the jets over the next two maps, powering Jaguar to a 3-1 victory with relative ease.
