Liquid confirmed at EPICENTER

September 25th, 2018 18:34

Liquid have been invited to attend EPICENTER 2018, the event's organisers have announced.

The North American side become the fourth team confirmed for the event, joining Astralis, FaZe and Natus Vincere, who were all previously unveiled by Epic Esports Events.

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.

Liquid will travel to Moscow to attend EPICENTER

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:

Ukraine Natus Vincere
Europe FaZe
Other Invite #5
Other Wild card qualifier #2
Denmark Astralis
North America Liquid
Other Wild card qualifier #1

On that supposition, all are wasted spots except Astralis. And, if that's the case, why have the competition at all? Just hand Astralis the money and crown them victors.
