LDLC, AVANGAR invited to BGW Invitational

LDLC and AVANGAR have been invited to compete at the Bucharest Gaming Week Invitational by ESL, the tournament organisers have told HLTV.org.

Both teams are currently inside the top 20 and were in attendance at IEM Chicago, where LDLC earned the status of surprise package as they reached the playoffs after beating Renegades, North and NRG in their group's lower bracket.

AVANGAR flew to Chicago on the back of a semi-final appearance at EPICENTER but could not live up to expectations, crashing out of the tournament early following defeats to mousesports and Luminosity.

LDLC will attend the BGW Invitational after DH Winter

The Bucharest Gaming Week Invitational by ESL will take place at the Romexpo indoor arena on December 9, with €50,000 (~$57,000) on offer. LDLC and AVANGAR will be joined by the ESL Southeast Europe Championship Season 8 champion and by the winner of an online qualifier featuring eight European sides.

The team list for the Romanian event currently looks as follows:

France LDLC
Europe ESL SEE champion
Kazakhstan AVANGAR
Europe Qualifier

Seven of the eight slots for the closed qualifier have already been filled, with the last team coming out of the A1 Adria League Season 2 Finals, which is currently being held in Zagreb, Croatia.
