Astralis invited to DreamHack Masters Marseille

DreamHack have confirmed Astralis as their second invited team for DreamHack Masters Marseille, via Twitter.

Following the announcement of home favourites G2, it is Astralis' turn to be announced for the $250,000 event, held in Marseille, France from April 18-22.  The playoffs is scheduled to take place on the last two days in front of a live audience at Le Dôme de Marseille.

Earlier this month, Astralis signed former OpTic member Emil "Magisk" Reif, to fill in the void left by Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye's departure to North. The team debuted at StarSeries i-League Season 4 and was knocked out in the quarter-finals by the runner-up of the event, Natus Vincere. The Danes will face Renegades in the opening match-up of IEM Katowice today.

Astralis have accepted their invitation to the French event

Information regarding the European and North American qualifiers have not been revealed by DreamHack yet. Meanwhile, the Asian qualifiers have already begun, with four teams confirmed for the closed stage, set to take place from March 6-8.

Invites are retarded! how can new teams ever get a chance if they don't hold qualifiers for everyone. They afraid fans might get mad if their team gets knocked out by a tier 3 team?

Honestly i think the order of these invites seems silly. it should be FAZE, c9, SK, Liquid, Mouz, NaVi. You know the teams that are actually performing well? Like what did Astralis do as of late rofl

if there are 8 invites, one of Liquid, mouz or Na'Vi will not be invited and NiP will be instead, I guarantee it
2018-02-27 09:26
Because invites are not based on who's doing best.
2018-02-27 09:35
How about just let all the teams earn their spots? What the hell have sk and faze done this year?
