Virtus.pro have been invited to compete at ZOTAC Cup Masters, the event's organisers have revealed on Weibo.

The Polish giants are the fourth team confirmed for the event, joining the previously two invitees, VG.Flash and TyLoo, and the winner of the Asian regional event, MVP PK.

Currently ranked 15th in the world, Virtus.pro were last seen at the CS:GO Asia Championships, in Shanghai, where they finished runners-up to Natus Vincere after beating TyLoo - both in the groups and in the semi-finals - and Heroic.

Virtus.pro confirmed for the event in Hong Kong

The ZOTAC Cup Masters will run from August 24-26 in Hong Kong, with $300,000 on the line. The last four tournament spots will be filled by the winners of the European and Americas regional events and by two more invitees.

The team list for the event currently looks as follows:

China VG.Flash
Korea MVP PK
Other Invite #4
Other Americas Finals winner
China TyLoo
Poland Virtus.pro
Other Invite #5
Other Europe Finals winner
#1

2018-06-22 19:29
Virtus.lul Only way they play 200k$+ events is to getting invites for these asian tournaments. No more top tier events. Pathetic situation. Honestly they must disband.
2018-06-22 11:33
They can only show their performance at those Chinese tournaments. Probably they hadn't even qualified for the Minor of this year's Major
2018-06-22 11:34
they are at the major already and i think this one will be the last major for neo and pasha. Snax and byali need to find new teams.

They rarely get invited to T1 events nowadays, don't give a shit about online leagues, won't play qualifiers, probably get offerts at DreamHack Open-level events which they won't accept cause of lower prize pool... So it leaves them with Chinese events which aren't stacked, but have a crapload of money up to grabs Talk about being lazy

Gambit? No, don't think so. They won't even qualify. Kinguin/Imperial will and I'm leaning more towards Imp, Gambit are not the same team they used to be and I won't even be suprised if they lose to x-kom on inferno (they are playing rn)
