The third qualifier for ESL One Rio has concluded, with Divine and Mythic advancing to the closed qualifier over Rap Gang and Recon 5.

Divine started off their series against Rap Gang on Dust2, with Brenden "stellar" McGrath leading the way for his team to decisively take the map 16-8.

Moving onto Overpass, Rap Gang started their T-side up 4-1 before Divine ran away with the half, outpacing their opposition to win their CT-side 9-6. After switching sides, a massive performance from Justin "FaNg" Coakley paved the way for his team to put up an ironclad defense, only allowing Divine three more rounds before taking the map 16-9.

With the series tied up, Rap Gang seemingly ran out of steam as stellar once again powered his team to a crushing 16-6 win on Inferno to claim a spot in the closed qualifier.

Recon 5 and Ze Pug Godz to FLASHPOINT North America Closed Qualifier

The series between Mythic and Recon 5 started off with Mythic receiving a default map win over Recon 5 due to the team running late because of the third FLASHPOINT qualifier.

Once Recon 5 arrived on the server, they started Dust2 off by conceding the first three rounds in a row on their CT-side before finding their rhythm to win the next nine rounds in a row. The half ended with Mythic closing the gap to trail by three rounds. On their defensive front, Mythic once again won the opening pistol before Recon 5 regained their earlier momentum to win the map 16-11. 

With the two teams tied up, they started off Vertigo on even terms, with Recon 5 narrowly winning their T-side 8-7. Moving onto their CT-side, Recon 5 kept up the pressure as they were the first to find double digits after winning four out of the first five rounds. However, their luck quickly ran out as Mythic rallied to claim the next eight rounds in a row to win the map 16-12, thanks in part to a pivotal 1v5 bomb recovery and defense by Corbin "C0M" Lee.

Although Recon 5 failed to win the series, Carson "nosraC" O'Reilly notably had a standout performance, ending the series with a 1.62 rating.
