oNe qualify for ESL Challenger Rotterdam
The second day of the ESL Challenger Rotterdam closed qualifier has drawn to a close, with oNe finding themselves booking their tickets to the Netherlands after securing a 2-0 victory over ATK. This concludes oNe's run in the ESL Challenger Rotterdam qualifiers, with oNe besting BHOP, Phantom Troupe, timbermen, Nouns, and ATK across the open and closed qualifier.
oNe kicked off their qualifier run yesterday with a tight victory over Nouns, besting the newly-signed squad in two close maps to keep the team in the upper bracket. The upper-bracket final against ATK did not go nearly as well, as only Matheus "pesadelo" Panisset could put up numbers against the international squad, averaging a 1.34 rating, the highest by far for his team. Following this loss to ATK, oNe were sent down to the lower bracket where they squared off against Nouns yet again. This match played out similarly to the first, in the oNe secured victory 2-0, this time with Nouns unable to keep it as close as their previous encounter. '
With their second victory over Nouns, oNe booked themselves a rematch against ATK for the valuable chance to compete in a European event. While their loss to ATK earlier must have loomed heavily on their minds, it is worth considering that ATK missed out on qualifying to ESL Challenger Melbourne in a similar fashion, as the international side beat EG.PA once before falling to them in the grand finals.
oNe got to a flying start on their pick of Overpass, marching ahead on the offense to claim a strong 11-4 lead. ATK secured the first three rounds of the second half, but once guns were in the hand of the Brazilian side there was not much to be done as oNe closed out their pick 16-9. The second map of Mirage started nicely for ATK, as the squad secured a 6-2 lead on the T-side. oNe soon composed themselves to narrowly secure the half 8-7. A pistol round win for ATK helped them reclaim the lead 9-8, but oNe quickly rebounded to close out the map 16-10, securing the revenge win and the place in ESL Challenger Rotterdam.
