LDLC White defeat their French rivals melty with a score of 2-1 (9-16 on de_dust2, 16-8 on de_inferno, and 16-12 on de_cbble) and qualify for ESWC 2015, occurring July 9-12 in Montreal.
The French ESWC qualifier, commonly known as the Masters Français du Jeu Vidéo, took place over the last two days in Jeumont, located in Northern France.
Eight teams competed in the event, with five receiving direct invitations and three coming from an online qualifier. Luckily for all French teams involved, Titan (who were originally slated to go through the open qualifier), found their place in the ESWC invite list after fnatic pulled out of the event.

From the group stages, four teams emerged at the event: LDLC White, Awsomniac, melty, and DeadPixels. Other notable French outfits, such as LDLC Blue and beGenius, failed to pass into the playoffs.
In the eventual grand final, LDLC White took on melty and despite the latter team starting the series off with a 16-9 win on de_dust2, LDLC White rallied and took the final two maps, thereby qualifying for ESWC 2015.
As a result, the team list for ESWC 2015 is now:
|Team Liquid||Bravado Gaming|
|LDLC White||ESWC Canada winner|
Barring any further team changes, the final qualifier is set to beESWC Canada, which will take place as part of the Montreal Comic Con on July 5th.
