iBUYPOWER Masters schedule revealed
iBUYPOWER has revealed the complete schedule for the upcoming $200,000 Masters tournament.
Eight top teams, including the current No.1 and No.3 sides in the world, Astralis and Liquid, will be squaring off over the weekend at the Avalon Theater Hollywood, in Los Angeles, for the grand prize of $100,000.
The tournament will provide the first opportunity to examine some of the new rosters following the off-season changes. Liquid, FaZe, compLexity and Cloud9 all come in with new players, while Luminosity will be fielding Fillipe "pancc" Martins as a stand-in.
The format remains unchanged from the previous iBUYPOWER Masters editions, with a best-of-one, double-elimination group stage leading to a single-elimination bracket, in which all matches will be best-of-three series.
