BR6 Super Week Preview: Four CES spots at stake, NiP set to potentially gatekeep Berlin qualification

Brazil heads to the final week of competition.

After the Mexicano and the Sudamericano Stage 2 concluded last week, it is now time for the BR6. In three days, we will know the which teams will represent Brazil at the Copa Elite Six.

With the tight spread across the league table, all teams can still dream of Copa Elite Six qualification. FURIA Esports are the example to follow – they headed into last stage’s super week in ninth place and sky rocketed to fourth on the final day of competition. 

Black Dragons are the team to watch

Black Dragons are on the verge of securing a first international qualification since 2018, though that roster then joined Ninjas in Pyjamas. Although Black Dragons have had a very solid second stage, a woeful third week of competition has sent the team back to reality. 

While still being favorites to qualify, Black Dragons’ schedule is tough and could certainly give hope to Team Liquid or FaZe Clan.

Black Dragons are the hope of everyone outside the top four, as the Brazilians will face FURIA Esports on Friday and oNe on Sunday. All three sides are tied on 11 points, and only four points split second from eighth.

A possible NiP resurgence could ruin top four’s weekend

In ninth with just six points, Ninjas in Pyjamas’ hopes to qualify for the Berlin Major are almost non-existent. 

However, their results could have a huge impact on the final standings. Just like Black Dragons, NiP face FURIA Esports and oNe, but also will face Black Dragons themselves. So, despite having a very reduced number of chances to qualify, a perfect record could shake up the standings to a point where even the ninjas could qualify. 

In other words, it is not over for the Six Invitational 2021 champions – although considering the team’s results throughout the stage, it would be delusional to think the team has got a real shot for Berlin. More likely, however, is NiP playing spoiler to other teams’ Berlin hopes.

Despite still having to clinch a Copa Elite Six spot, w7m esports head into the final week of competition in first with 15 points. 

So far, the team’s performance has been impeccable like in Stage 1. They have been far ahead of everyone in the league, leading the overall standings by 12 points while having a round differential of 52.

Just like last stage, Diego “Kheyze” Zanello and Gabriel “volpz” Fernandes lead the individual statistics in first and third place respectively. So unless a catastrophe takes place this weekend, or in the next Copa Elite Six, the team should be in Berlin. 

Copa do Brasil participants to be decided today

Teams outside the top four by the end of the weekend will qualify for the Copa do Brasil, a competition where BR6 rosters slot into a bracket with tier two teams. Last stage’s edition was won by 00 Nation, as the squad defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas in the Grand Final.

With Black Dragons currently in the top four, Team Liquid would take their place. Team Liquid have never played this tournament before and their appearance here would mark a particularly low point for them.
