FaZe are the third invited team to EPICENTER 2018 taking place on October 22-28 in Moscow.
After the invites given out to Natus Vincere and Astralis, FaZe are the third in line to be confirmed at EPICENTER 2018. The Russian tournament, taking place in Moscow on October 22-28 was announced in August and will feature a prize pool of $300,000
After a rocky 0-2 start at the FACEIT Major in London, where they are currently competing, FaZe were able to win three matches in a row against mousesports, TYLOO, and G2 to make it to the New Champions Stage where they will fight for the title.
The three confirmed teams will be joined by two more invites as well as three teams from the Wild card qualifier, one of which will be picked based on the HLTV.org ranking, at the Park of Legends Ice Palace, in Moscow, where the event will take place.
