Tomorrow we will find out which team will be the eighth and last to qualify for ESL One Frankfurt 2015. So far, four teams have secured a slot through a series of qualifiers: Alliance, Virtus.pro, Team Malaysia and reigning champion Invictus Gaming. Three teams - Evil Geniuses, Team Secret and Vici Gaming - received a direct invitation to the finals. Tomorrow, the lower bracket qualifier final will decide whether it will be Natus Vincere or Cloud9 joining the others in Frankfurt.

Both Cloud9 and Na’Vi started out in the upper bracket qualifier, with Cloud9 seeded into round three and Na’Vi into round two. Cloud9 lost 0-2 to Alliance, who later qualified for Frankfurt, and thus ended up in the lower bracket. Na’Vi was going strong in the qualifier, beating both Balkan Bears and HellRaisers 2-0, but have also fallen to Alliance in a 0-2 loss.

The teams have been looking strong in the lower bracket qualifier, with none of them dropping a game. Na’Vi defeated Team Tinker 2-0, while Cloud9 triumphed over HellRaisers and Team Empire, also 2-0. Tomorrow, Cloud9 and Na’Vi will battle it out to see who will take the final slot in ESL One Frankfurt 2015.
