iBP Spring Invitational with $15,000

iBUYPOWER is back with a North American tournament featuring eight teams and a $15,000 prize pool.

The last iBUYPOWER tournament was the iBUYPOWER Cup 2015 in November, which Cloud9 won after defeating Liquid in the final to take home $65,000 in cash prizes. Since then, a lot has changed as the best teams in the North American region including Cloud9, Luminosity, Liquid, and CLG made roster changes.

The tournament will take place online where eight teams will be trying to best one another in a single-elimination best-of-three format. The iBP Spring Invitational will be running for two days, March 19th and 20th.


FalleN & company will take on a new challange 

Four of the teams participating have already been announced, headlined by Luminosity who are the fourth best team in the world according to our rankings. Their Brazilian brethren from Tempo Storm join them alongside Renegades and OpTic. The four remaining teams will be revealed on March 11th, the date set by iBP to make the announcement.

The team list for iBP Spring Invitational can be found below:

Brazil Luminosity  Brazil Tempo Storm  Australia Renegades  Canada OpTic
North America TBA North America TBA North America TBA North America TBA

The prize distribution for the tournament looks as follows:

1. - $9,000
2. - $4,000
3-4. - $1,000

Win 3 bo3s, and win $9000 = $1800/player. Ez money if you ask me. Dunno why people think LG would throw, it's probably the easiest money they will get, compared to nearly placing first at IEM (which was 100xx harder)
