Team Cignal Ultra failed to qualify and play for the WePlay! Bukovel Minor 2020 after the Filipino giants, Geek Fam, knocked them out with a gleaming 3-0 record.
This week has been rough for Cignal Ultra. They just missed out on a fair chance to join the Dream League Season 13 Leipzig Major because of Typhoon Tisoy wrecking their internet connection on a deciding game.
Today, their shot at redemption happened at the SEA Qualifiers for the WePlay! Bukovel Minor 2020. Cignal Ultra did quite well to kick-off their run. However, they just couldn’t break their biggest challenge in this qualifier: Geek Fam. The team has once again lost both in the winner bracket finals and the grand finals.
On the other hand, Geek fam, after a disappointing run in the Major Qualifiers, recovered and cruised through the Minor Qualifiers with ease. The team stood with an impressive and undefeated run. Geek fam secured a 7-0 win-loss record in this qualifier underlining the fact that the team was simply a level above the rest of the playing field.
