Forgive me for this potentially silly question, but I've just checked FNATIC's website to find out the results for the EU qualifiers for this tournament (Why I can't find out some of this information on the IEM site I don't know), and it shows CLG.EU losing in the lower bracket, EARLIER than Moscow 5, yet they qualified and Moscow 5 didn't?

Am I missing something?

EDIT: Maybe it was because CLG.EU got further in the Upper Bracket.
