oNe earn two tournament invites over Nouns
The Brazilians triumphed over their American foes in the grand final of the eight-team Ace North America QUALIFiRE tournament, earning themselves not one, but two tournament invites for October.
The matchup saw smooth sailing from the start, as Nouns took a 10-5 first-half lead after a strong T-side highlighted by round win streaks of four and five. This also comes off the back of an initial 2-0 start for oNe after winning pistol plus the follow-up round. With the momentum in the Nouns camp, they had little struggle from their opposition to close map one. oNe did successfully take pistol once again, but Nouns comfortably took the Brazilians out by winning six of the final seven rounds to win 16-7.
oNe hit back with a haymaker of their own on their map pick of Overpass in an almost identical fashion. After Nouns started strong with a 3-0 lead, oNe ripped off seven to turn the tide in their favor with a 7-3 lead. oNe were able to seal two of the final five rounds to close the first half with a narrow 9-6 lead, and looked to have a clear path to taking the series to a third map. They did just that, winning pistol and six out of the eight following rounds, only giving up two rounds of Nouns’ T-side to win their own map pick, 16-8. With the two teams hammering each other on their home turfs, it was time for the Mirage decider to confirm a victor.
It was back to business for oNe, as they won their T-side pistol plus another six rounds to start their offensive effort with a commanding 7-0 lead. Nouns would win two of three to seemingly start to pull momentum back, but oNe shut that down quickly with three-straight rounds back to seal their 12th round. After splitting the final two, oNe completed their first-half trouncing of Nouns on their T-side, 12-3. oNe offered no opportunity for a comeback, winning the first three rounds to secure map and match point. With their backs against the wall, Nouns gave one last pushback, winning two rounds on T-side before losing the map and match to a oNe eco.
Although all qualifiers are important, this one bares a little bit more than usual, as oNe get to celebrate two different event invites as a byproduct of their winning effort. The first of two event invites come in the form of a LAN invite in Barcelona, Spain. oNe will compete against the likes of Imperial, paiN, MIBR, and 9z in the eight-team FiReLEAGUE 2022 Global Finals beginning October 14th for their lion’s share of $100,000.
The second invite will see oNe competing on the American side of the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown. The eight-team American bracket will pit the participants in single-elimination BO3 play with the sole winner earning an invite to the BLAST Premier Fall Finals taking place in Copenhagen in November.
