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.

Astralis will open up the action against compLexity

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.

With the groups and the first-round match-ups already determined, iBUYPOWER has now finalised the schedule for the competition, which you can find below:

Saturday, January 19
19:00 | Denmark Astralis vs. North America compLexity | BO1

1. You didn't explain why they deserve world flag as they clearly don't. 2. That's the flag HLTV uses and they don't even include Mexico (had to look up old rankings) in NA rankings. Not that it matters as there's 0 relevant teams (top100 even).

NA format in a nutshell and it isnt even some trashy 10k tournament. it’s almost as bad as a bo1 where X was randomly selected out of 3 maps.
