fnatic invited to DreamHack Masters Dallas
fnatic have secured an invitation to compete at DreamHack Masters Dallas, the event's organisers announced on Monday.
The three-time Major champions are the tenth side confirmed for the North American event, joining a list that is currently headlined by Liquid and FaZe, respectively the No.2 and No.5 teams in the world.
The announcement comes just days after fnatic raised eyebrows at StarSeries i-League Season 7 as they finished runners-up to Natus Vincere after an impressive run that saw them beat Swedish rivals NiP as well as NRG (twice), Vitality and North.
The deep run in Shanghai came as a much-needed boost for Richard "Xizt" Landström's side, who had appeared to be in crisis after crashing out of the IEM Katowice Major in the New Challengers Stage, and finishing in fourth place at the WESG Finals, dropping to 15th in the rankings.
With fnatic's unveiling, there are now just four invites left for DreamHack Masters Dallas, which will be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center from May 28 through to June 2. The final two spots will be determined through online qualifiers, one for Chinese teams, the other for teams from other Asian countries.
The team list for DreamHack Masters Dallas currently looks as follows:
