TI11’s regional qualifiers began on 3rd Sept in Eastern Europe (EEU) and South America (SA). BetBoom Team made an incredible comeback at the conclusion of the EEU qualifier, defeating Natus Vincere 2-0 and then Outsiders 3-0 to secure the TI11 spot. In a similar vein, Hokori won the SA qualifier with a late but strong comeback.
It was then time for the China qualifier as well as the North American qualifier, with Royal Never Give Up winning the former and Soniqs winning the latter, as many predicted before the qualifiers began.
The qualifiers for TI11 came to an end in two of the most competitive areas, Southeast Asia (SEA) and Western Europe (WEU). Polaris Esports had a wonderful run in the SEA qualifier, eliminating T1, but fell short against Talon Esports in the grand final, settling for a last chance qualifier place. Meanwhile, Entity proved to be too much of a challenge for all teams in the WEU qualifier, winning without dropping a single map.
