Battlegrounds Lobby Legends Qualifiers #7 recap: SeseiSei has fallen!

The seventh edition of Battlegrounds Lobby Legends has already started with a big blow. The current champion was defeated in the Qualys.

Battlegrounds Lobby Legends’ high season continues. Yesterday we had the Qualifiers for the seventh $50,000 event in 2022. Only 12 of the 48 players made it thru this stage to compete in the Lobby Legends 7 main event on October 15-16. The current winner and Lobby Legends point-record holder, SeseiSei, was knocked down, guaranteeing a new champion. Let’s go over what happened!

Battlegrounds Lobby Legends Qualifiers #7

Hearthstone Battelgrounds Esports is giving no break to players or fans. Just seven days ago, SeseiSei proclaimed himself the sixth edition’s champ, scoring record-high points. Yesterday, we saw the Qualifiers for the next $50K tournament.

The top 16 ladder players from the Americas, European and Asia Pacific servers competed to earn an invite to the main event on October 15-16. With little to no changes in the meta, SeseiSei was pointed as one of the favorites. However, things didn’t go that well for him this time.

The Qualifiers started with a first stage in which the 48 players were divided into 6 groups. Each would play three games, with the top 4 point earners advancing to the next stage. Similarly, the 24 remaining players in stage 2 had to battle throughout three more games for the Top 4 spots that would put them in the Battlegrounds Lobby Legends #7 main event.

Qualifier Results for Battlegrounds: Lobby Legends #6

Battlegrounds is a game that rewards consistency. However, in a sample size of only three games, anything can happen. That is why, while we see the same names on the top of the ladder each month, the Lobby Legends finals are unique.

During the first stage, big names couldn’t make it. Among them, Alutemu, Rogojinerimgosu, Jeef, Zorgo, BetetBabbit and Lii. But these were not the only ones. Just 12 players advance to the main event. In the second stage, SeseiSei, the current champion, fell in battle, probably victim of his high-risk high-reward strategies.

On October 15, four Chinese server players will join these 12. While APAC’s dominance seems to continue, the incredible results from Alucard and the presence of fan-favorite XQN are here to put a fight.

What’s Next?

The Battlegrounds Lobby Legends #7 main event will take place on October 15th and 16th with $50,000 in prizes. However, Battlegrounds Esports news doesn’t end there. With September’s season ending just two days ago, we know the names of the 48 players that will compete in the Lobby Legends #8 Qualifiers.

Bare in mind that players still have to accept the invitations (and yes, some had forfeited from competing in the past), so these leaderboards are only an indicator. Moreover, Advo is still banned (since the Advo-Silvername scandal), so he won’t be eligible for the next event.

It’s sad to see RDU being so close and not making it. He had an incredible month, including a Subathon and a +400 climb in the final 48 hours. As a fan, I still pray for someone not accepting the invite and RDU getting into the event.

This is all for now, but stay tuned to Esports.gg for more Battlegrounds news and updates. Make sure you check out our content sections for detailed guides and tips on how to improve. As always, see you next time, in Bob’s Tavern.
