Imperial, Valiance finalize Qi Invitational list
Imperial and Valiance have been invited to compete at the Qi Invitational, HLTV.org has learned.
The duo will join six other invitees at the event, finalizing the eight-team list for the Qi Invitational, a $75,000 tournament that will feature just European and Asian teams.
HLTV.org knows that the tournament organisers wanted to invite a fourth Asian team, but, following Flash's merge ViCi Gaming, they were forced to find a last-minute replacement in Europe.
Imperial recently raised eyebrows after lifting the Copenhagen Games 2018 trophy, which earned them a top 20 spot in the world ranking.
The Qi Invitational will take place from April 24-26 at a studio in Belgrade, Serbia. In addition to the base $75,000 prize pool, teams will receive $1,000 for each intercontinental match victory.
The final team list for the event looks as follows:
