Liquid have been invited to attend EPICENTER 2018, the event's organisers have announced.
Currently ranked third in the world, Liquid raised eyebrows at the recent Major, where they reached the semi-finals with 3-0 runs in the New Challengers and the New Legends stages before being downed 2-0 by eventual champions Astralis.
Nick "nitr0" Cannella's men will be confident that they can go one better at the Russian event than last year, when they went out 7th-8th following losses to Danish duo North and Astralis.
Running from October 23-28 at the Park of Legends Ice Palace, in Moscow, EPICENTER will feature eight teams and a $300,000 prize pool. There is now just one invite left to be announced as the remaining three spots will be determined by a wildcard qualifier with four teams, with the highest-ranked side securing direct entry into the main tournament.
The team list for EPICENTER 2018 currently looks as follows:
As you know, we treat all our tournament participants with a lot of care. So much that we’re prepared to fulfil their fondest dreams. We hope that 🇺🇸@TeamLiquid and their wonderful coach, @Zews, will have a pleasant return to #EPICENTER CS:GO❤️https://t.co/umW848hxLP#epicgg— EPICENTER (@epicentergg) September 25, 2018
