In the aftermath of the 2016 IWCQ two champions emerge in INTZ e-Sports and Albus NoX Luna. Taking down teams from Japan, Oceania, SEA, Turkey, and Latin America North/South, the two teams will represent CIS and Brazil at the 2016 World Championship.
This marks INTZ first time attending Worlds after not qualifying for the IWCQ in 2015. Brazil as a region has qualified for the world championship every year since 2014, and have looked progressively stronger each time.
Albus NoX Luna will also make their first Worlds appearance after a third place finish at the 2015 IWCQ as Hard Random. Dominating the LCL, Albus NoX Luna will look to prove the strength of the CIS region, who had no representatives at the 2015 World Championship.
Both teams fought hard for their spots, and represent the strongest teams outside of a the five major regions. It will be interesting to see how exactly how far a wildcard team can go, and how they stack up against the rest of the world.
