ZOTAC Cup Masters Americas Finals first-round matchups drawn

The ZOTAC Cup event organizers have unveiled the format and first-round matchups for the $20,000 Americas Regional Finals.

Six teams, featuring two invitees and two squads determined by the North and South America qualifiers, are set to skirmish in a single-elimination, best-of-three bracket.

HLTV.org knows that the matches for the first round were initially supposed to be played as a single game, but the event organisers decided to change the format after listening to feedback from the teams.

steel and co. aim to seal passage to Hong Kong

The winner of the Complexity-FURIA battle will then advance to the semi-finals to face off against eUnited, while Joshua "steel" Nissan and his men await the conclusion of the Swole Patrol-Sharks series for a chance to secure a spot in the grand final. The losers from the semi-finals will then duel in the third-place decider prior to the start of the grand finals

The ZOTAC Cup Masters Americas Regional Finals will take place at the Esports Arena in Santa Ana, California from June 30 - July 1. In addition to a spot at the main ZOTAC Cup Masters event, in Hong Kong, where $300,000 up for grabs, teams will also compete for a share of the $20,000 regional prize pool.

Why can't Ghost win against Swole Patrol? They're like their kryptonite.
