Kinguin invited to Nations Elite Esports Cup; qualifiers revealed

The organisers of the Nations Elite Esports have announced that Kinguin are the latest invitee for the tournament along with the registration links for the qualifiers.

Kinguin join previously invited duo GODSENT and LDLC in the list of participants for the tournament, which will feature a prize pool of €25,000 (~$29,100).

The trio will be joined by a fourth invited team, who will be picked by public vote. Space Soldiers, HAVU and AGO have been proposed by the tournament organisers as possible invitees, but the community can also suggest other teams.

what? SS is a 20th team and Kinguin29. they are directly invited but voting for SS hahaha They are strong enough to win many European qual,For example (They could not go because it was on the same date as Minor) (they could not attend this tournament because they could not get a visa due to the holiday) As we can see they already have a team that can qualify for a good tournament. And there are already tournaments to attend. Calyx and paz young and good players bye
