OpTic Texas has posted another perfect qualifying stage ahead of Major V. Following massive wins against Legion (2-3), FaZe (0-3), Surge (0-3), Ultra (1-3), and Florida (0-3), OpTic Texas has now once again secured the top seed for the upcoming Major in back-to-back stages. There are huge expectations for what looks to be the best OpTic roster we’ve seen in years, but will the team manage to snatch a win, or will it be the third second-place finish of the year so far for the squad?

It was a dramatic weekend all around, with the mid-to-bottom-table teams being hyper-aware of the fact that it’s the last chance to qualify for Champs. No team is more desperate to qualify this year than Las Vegas Legion, hellbent on making it to Champs for the first time in franchise history. However, there’s a drastic fight to secure qualification against Minnesota Rokkr, a team that well and truly showed up during this qualifying stage.

Will Legion make it to Champs? Will OpTic Texas finally secure a chip at Major V?

That wasn’t all, though – Ultra, Subliners, and Minnesota all had a piece of LA Thieves.

It got so bad that Nadeshot, the owner of 100 Thieves – LA Thieves’ parent organisation – posted a telling meme on Twitter…
