The organizers of the event have announced that Liquid received the sixth and final invitation spot at ESL One New York.

After revealing that FaZe, Natus Vincere, SK, Virtus.pro, and Astralis would be competing in New York in the $250,000 competition, ESL have now unveiled the team that secured the last invite spot: Liquid.

The North American squad, who are currently ranked eleventh in the team ranking, have recently finished 5-6th at ECS Season 3 Finals, failed to qualify for the PGL Major Krakow by finishing 9-11th at the Main Qualifier, and placed 5-8th at ESL One Cologne 2017.

Liquid will return to New York

Josh "jdm64" Marzano & company will make their return to New York where they will be facing seven other teams from September 14-17 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Last year, Liquid placed 3-4th at ESL One New York.

The last two teams will be determined in the open and closed qualifiers taking place in Europe and North America. Below is the current team list:

Europe FaZe CIS Natus Vincere
Poland Virtus.pro Brazil SK
Denmark Astralis United States Liquid
Europe EU qual. spot  North America NA qual. spot
United States Josh 'jdm64' Marzano

Interesting decision from ESL to invite a team that didn't qualify for a major, over one that did (clown9). Both would have been wasted slots anyway.
2017-08-09 19:43
Cloud9 refused the invitation because 2 of their players are on vacation
2017-08-09 19:55
VACation?
2017-08-09 19:59
C9 is never a wasted spot because their games are almost always close
2017-08-09 22:17
event is in september after ESL pro league starts. Their vacations will be over.
2017-08-09 21:22
now 2 wasted spots, faze and liquid :/
2017-08-11 05:15
REALY NIGGA ESL DO SUCK THERE IS GAMBIT IMMORTALS FNATIC G2 OVER THERE LIQUID DIDNT EVEN PASS MAJOR QUALIFIER LUL

Undeserved. Trash NA team.. wasted spot as always
2017-08-09 19:25
Yeah shoulda been everyone except immortals and liquid imo
2017-08-09 19:26
cry is free monkey. IMT much better than almost everyone in invited teams
2017-08-09 19:27
Woah salty much? I was just saying how inconsistent immortals are and have always been, imo the invite should have been given to the current major winner or to an up and coming team like NiP or BiG to see how far they would get. We all know Immortals had a fluke run at the major

I just realized you wrote this: "IMT much better than almost everyone in invited teams" lmfao VP Astralis SK and FaZe say hi
2017-08-09 19:30
VP? look at major result FaZe? IMT beats FaZe almost everytime they meet them Astralis? They always lucky against IMT

nah, ESL were always going to invite an NA team
2017-08-09 20:38
well they have an NA qualifier, so there's still a very good chance an NA team would be at the event. and i'm pretty certain North declined, because their eleague group is the same weekend as ESL new york.
2017-08-09 20:39
Any If current teams> North
2017-08-09 23:00
Better EU teams probably were invited before other EU teams (some of which probably accepted in what would have been G2's or North's place). ESL was always going to invite an NA team to an NA event, anyway.

C9 couldn't get 1 map off SK in a bo5, Clg beat sk on mirage, sks best map, clg also beat gambit twice, who are now major champions
2017-08-09 19:59
ur logic is awful. clg beat gambit during there big slump and sk's best map isnt mirage. thats there 3rd or 4th best map. ur logic is actually awful. basically by ur logic then space soldiers is also better than c9 because they upset sk 2. c9 has mad playofs in 2 big tournaments. clg has made the playoffs of 1 big tournament by not even beating teams in the top 10. c9 beat astralis on mirage does that make them better than them? NO!!!

Yea, you're dumb as fuck. I know 0/8 = rating bait. The fact that you think that bait and sarcasm is the same thing hahaha. Bait = trying to trick ppl to believe something thats not very believable Sarcasm = using irony to mock something/someone. Speaking of something when your intent is the complete opposite, saying something when its obvious that you mean the complete opposite. I was obviously writing sarcastically, that i mean the opposite, i was not trying to convince people that what i was saying is true because then i wouldn't fking write ''they didn't even make the major''....-....

Of all North American teams, at least in their present state, Liquid still have the highest ceiling... Who knows if they'll ever come close to reaching it however.

Liquid is a good team tho, can compete on equal terms with any team, except by 2 or 3 top teams. They are probably the best NA team, despite C9 having more individual skills, Liquid has a better system to rely on.

what system? system of failing to qualify for major? must not be much of a system if stewies puggy strats got them qualified over stanislaw's shitty system. stanislaw is mediocre IGL, just got lucky and got great talents to utilize who meshed in optic and got exposed when he left for a shitty team that can't even qualify for major and have to suck dick and bribe organizers and use their connections to get invites lmao. all liquid has is money, money and shitty players which they continue to try to use to get into events and stay relevant. how many briefcases of cash and organizers' dicks did jokasteve have to go through I wonder to get into this event?

many good teams got screwed sometimes, some bad results does not define how much a team can be good. Liquid are playing very decent on lan for a while and it seems they are improving.

I dont get it. Why they invite Liquid. There are so many better teams like Fnatic and other ;)

Isn't Fnatic in the middle of a possible roster shuffle? That can possibly be why.

2017-08-09 23:53
I like how they use the phrase "jdm and company" even though he is one of their worst players lmao
2017-08-10 00:07
Lol your favorite player is literally listed as jdm
2017-08-11 02:41
Yeah, i recognize hes not that good tho
2017-08-12 01:48
Fair enough. Liquid is my favorite team but I recognize they aren't great, though I don't think they deserve all the hate they get. So I get it haha
2017-08-12 04:52
Yeah they're underrated imo, they can hang with some of the best teams in the world most of the time, hopefully they show up at New York and qualify for Eleague
