FURIA invited to Arctic Invitational

FURIA have been invited to participate in the Arctic Invitational, held in Helsinki on September 14.

The Brazilian squad are joining NRG in the list of invited teams for the ~$115,000 tournament, which will feature another directly invited side and a team coming from a Finnish qualifier.

FURIA have recently made waves by climbing to fifth place in the ranking following successful campaigns at DreamHack Masters Dallas and ECS Season 7 Finals, where they reached semi-finals and the grand final, respectively.

FURIA will be in action in Helsinki in mid-September

The Finnish event will be held in the 13,000-seater Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland, on September 14.

The participants' list of the tournament now looks as follows:

United States NRG
Other Invite
Brazil FURIA
Finland Finnish qualifier

You do realize Furia only got those upsets because nobody in the world was prepping for them lol. First time a team actually watches a demo they lose to a t30 team. You hit the nail on the head though. Your description of bad teams is exactly how you beat astralis. I’m so happy you actually get this unlike most BR fans. I can respect you for realizing you got lucky. Much love
2019-06-17 19:57
you do realize brazil has a long tradition of strong teams that actually win titles? also furia players has been hot shit for at least a year. but yeah I agree

"do realize brazil has a long tradition of strong teams that actually win titles?" Tradition doesn't means present. The whole conversation is in the past, relating it to present
2019-06-18 15:41
its all about mibr/SK just one team,i am talking abt Furia. These guys are good but their #5 on Hltv and winning against big teams all just a fluke. If not, prove it like EZ4ENCE did.
2019-06-19 07:32
They just got top 5 cuz Navi, etc, were not playing, the lucky of good result in a "gap of activity" from other top teams. But they're a really young team. ENCE has been here for quite a while and BOT/GOD allu xp may be a key factor in for ENCE

Did you read the article? There is literally no point on inviting ENCE AND having a Finnish qualifier for another Finnish team so ENCE will just attend the Finnish qualifiers

I know that's why they're not invited, but I would invite them nonetheless. Or a Nordic team at least

I thought the invites were NA (NRG), Sweden & CIS. Apparently not or they just couldn't get any decent teams from there.

They were indeed. They couldn't get any good team from cis maybe? Navi is basically the only good team from cis, so yea
2019-06-18 00:44
Ye if navi declined that is why they dont want a cis team
2019-06-18 08:32
Blast moscow and arctic invitational are at the same time
2019-06-19 00:21
I hope this event isn't going to be a complete farse

Few wins over Astralis and some other teams isn't a fluke? Okay then.
2019-06-19 15:42
Good invite imo. The last two inviteés will be ENCE and Vitality for sure. NRG Furia ENCE Vitality All of them are fresh top-tier teams unlike Shitquid or FaZe. #EZ4ENCE

Well, even the rankings say they are #6 I would still rank them above Furia as #5. I consider roughly top 10 as "top-tier".
2019-06-17 18:58
Ence won't go there. It overlaps with blasg moscow

Why the fuck is FURIA fifth? only thing that they do is win Astralis and lost final of 1 tournement...faze won a tournement and they are behind them
2019-06-17 18:56
But Faze won too long ago They will grind back into top 5 after Cologne

ECS and Dreamhack? in DH Faze vas in semis too in ECS they didnt qualify but this doesnt make FURIA in front of 10 good teams...Windigo is winning tournements like one for 500 000 and there was MIBR Fnatic and many more and they didnt get top 10 spot

Windigo didn't do anything in Dallas. To get into top10, team needs to get into playoffs in tier1 tournaments. Winning tier2 isn't enough.
