iBP attend G3, bootcamp in Europe
iBUYPOWER have confirmed they will be attending Gfinity 3 in London on August 2-3 and bootcamping in Europe until ESL One Cologne on August 14-17.
Following two major attendances with iBUYPOWER crashing out in the group stage, the team will this time around spend nearly two weeks bootcamping in Europe before ESL One Cologne.
iBP are fresh off their second consecutive ESEA championship, having bested OverGaming, Virtus.pro and compLexity, twice, en route to winning the $20,000 first place prize.
iBUYPOWER will spend two weeks in Europe in early August
Sam "DaZeD" Marine's squad will go head-to-head with the world's best teams, including NiP, fnatic, Titan and Virtus.pro, first in London, followed up by ESL One Cologne two weeks later.
The team still has to qualify for ESL One, but with compLexity already possessing a spot, it should be a mere formality. iBUYPOWER will be represented by:
Keven "AZK" Lariviere
Sam "DaZeD" Marine
Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham
Joshua "steel" Nissan
Braxton "swag" Pierce
Contacted by HLTV.org, iBUYPOWER's manager and former Counter-Strike player Derrick "impulsivE" Truong said the following:
"We're extremely pumped to be able to travel to Europe again. We're first headed to London for G3, and then moving over to Germany for an extensive bootcamp," Derrick "impulsivE" Truong told HLTV.org.
"Hopefully we can top the North American qualifier for ESL One Cologne next week, and then attend the next major fully prepared after our bootcamp."
Gfinity 3 will take place on August 2-3 at the Olympic Park in London, while ESL One Cologne will be held at GamesCom on August 14-17. HLTV.org will be present at both events.
