EHOME qualified for the Summit 6 to be held November 16th-20th in sunny Los Angeles, California.
The Chinese team walked through the brackets unscathed, overwhelming CDEC Gaming, Invictus Gaming and LGD with consecutive 2:0 sweeps.
LGD struggled a bit more for their place in the Grand Finals. They lost a match to Newbee but managed to outplay them 2:1 and then knocked down LGD.Forever Young 2:0. After LGD fell to the lower brackets, they refaced LGD.Forever Young and once again overpowered them for a 2:1 victory.
A grueling first win of the series for EHOME was followed by a quick loss to LGD in the second game. EHOME then bounced back into shape and seized the next two games fairly easily to claim their spot in Los Angeles.
Four teams have been directly invited to participate at the Summit 6 – Wings, Digital Chaos, Evil Geniuses and OG. Four other teams qualified – one from each of the four regions – China, SEA, EU and NA.
SEA was the first of the regions to conclude the qualifiers, with Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang’s Team Faceless taking the allocated spot. Team NP seized the NA spot after an intense five-game series. Virtus.Pro overwhelmed Ad Finem, 3:1 for the second time in two seasons for a place at the Summit.

The Chinese giants have made two changes to their lineup for the Fall Major 2016 season. Liu “Sylar” Jiajun and Liu “Garder” Xinzhou have replaced Daryl “iceiceice” Koh Pei Xiang and Lu “Fenrir” Chao.
Earlier in September Sylar joined the EHOME roster alongside returning members Wang “old chicken” Zhiyong and Ren “old eLeVeN” Yangwei.
Sylar assumed the carry role left vacant as Daryl “iceiceice” Koh Pei Xiang left to SEA to create his new team – Team Faceless with Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier, Wong “NutZ” Jeng Yih, Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong and Toh “Xy-” Wai Hong.
EHOME is getting ready to compete at the Northern Arena BEAT Invitational in Montreal, Canada November 11-13th for a piece of the $100,000 prize pool.
