eUnited invited to EPICENTER NA closed qualifier; bracket released
EPICENTER has revealed eUnited as the final invite to the North America closed qualifier as well as the full bracket.
eUnited receives the invite after Cloud9 pulled out of the qualifier due to conflicting times with their boot camp in Copenhagen prior to the Major. eUnited is expected to play the qualifier from Canada - as the North American squad is set to participate at DreamHack Open Montreal.
With all six teams confirmed in the NA closed qualifier, the single-elimination best-of-three bracket will begin with BlackOut taking on the South Africans of Bravado, while the Open Qual #1 rematch will feature FURIA and Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir's Swole Patrol.
The EPICENTER closed qualifier is set to start September 8th and will have one slot up for grabs at the tournament's Wild Card Qualifier, which will be held October 23rd.
