mousesports invited to ESL One Cologne 2019

mousesports have received a direct invite to ESL One Cologne 2019.

The European mix team will join 15 other contestants in Cologne, Germany on July 2-7 in squaring it out for the lion's share of $300,000 in prize money. Additionally, the squad that subsequently hoists the tournament trophy will receive a point towards the Intel Grand Slam Season 2.

With the invitation of mousesports, a total of six slots remain to be filled: two reserved for invited teams, and four to be distributed to squads that top the European, North American and Asian qualifiers.

NRG & Liquid are fine. The rest would get blown out of the stadium by mouz.
2019-05-02 18:25
liquid will be invited, c9 are so much worse than mousesports, vitality overrated cuz of zywoo, movistar riders literally broke cuz Lowell left and they weren't even good with him on the roster
2019-05-02 18:25
You can't tell if C9 is better. The question was "Who is better than mousesports atm who aren't invited?" so Liquid is a valid answer Vitality ended in top working hard, mouz is in top 30 without doing anything. Movistar Riders > ENCE
2019-05-02 18:28
“Without doing anything” 3-0 in EPL gs

They know they can’t win true t1, so they dodge and go all in on t1.5/2 like Sydney so they have a shot ;-)

I don't think that both TL and NRG will be invited. It's probably going to be TL and the only last invite I can think of is G2 if NBK says that they didn't get the invite.
