Teams for iBP Invitational announced

iBUYPOWER has revealed the full set of teams for its Spring Invitational cup.

Scheduled for April 1-2, the tournament will feature eight top North American teams, who will compete in a single-elimination bracket for the lion's share of a $16,000 prize pool.

Without surprise, Immortals, who won the iBUYPOWER Masters event, in December, SK Gaming and CLG will not take part in this tournament as the trio will be attending the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 event, in Kiev, next week.


Cloud9 will compete in the iBUYPOWER Spring Invitational 

OpTic, who recently brought Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski in as an ingame leader on a temporary basis, Liquid and Cloud9 are among the teams who will be participating in the tournament, which will be streamed live on iBUYPOWER's Twitch channel.

Below you can find the full set of teams for the tournament:

United States Liquid North America Complexity
North America OpTic United States NRG

yea depends on the day, LG turned it around when they played, but if seangares has a decent day it could go for misfits

I'm not trying to bash coL but WHY ARE THEY GETTING INVITED TO THESE EVENTS?
2017-03-28 22:06
Ez 4 KNG
2017-03-28 22:08
if C9 doesnt win this then Im actually gunna be mad
2017-03-28 22:10
fucking anyone but coL. I'd rather have Splyce, eUnited or Bee's Money Crew instead of this failure of a team.
2017-03-28 22:22
C9 and OpTic really downgrade the lv.... LUL
2017-03-28 22:25
Given their recent accomplishments... BMC should take priority over coL/Misfits/Selfless. It's time to pour a forty out for Bee.
2017-03-28 22:39
we're like brothers you're the smart counterpart and i'm the hltv-esque one
2017-03-28 23:08
