Astralis, NaVi, FaZe and a swedish team left.
2019-05-30 21:13
Astralis are skipping IEM Chicago, otherwise they would have been announced at the same time as Liquid. Na'Vi and FaZe probably skip too because Blast said to them they will have to play the Blast event which will be almost same time as Chicago

Deserved for Vitality, they went through so many qualifiers now it's time they get all those invites. Not deserved for MIBR though, thrash team on LAN.

2019-05-30 21:22
Yes ofc, these 8 trophies back in 2017 and back to back majors were online
2019-05-30 21:29
How is that relevant ? that was 2 years ago look at their LAN results since 2018 they are awful but they keep getting invites over more deserving teams. I don't even understand as a brazilian you should be rooting for FURIA because if MIBR see FURIA are getting invites over them maybe they will start practicing more and stop taking things for granted
2019-05-30 21:33
Thats true that mibr dont practice too much xd
2019-05-30 21:44
trust me it's good that Furia get more invites instead of mibr and then mibr will become good again
2019-05-30 21:48
