ESL One New York NA closed qualifier invites revealed

The team list for the North American closed qualifier for ESL One New York is now complete after the names of the four invitees were revealed.

FURIA, Complexity, Ghost and Cloud9 have all been invited to compete in the qualifier, which will be held on Thursday, June 27, with eight teams battling it out for a spot at the $200,000 competition.

With Ghost currently down to just one player, Matthew "WARDELL" Yu, and the future of Cloud9's current line-up very much in doubt, it seems likely that there will be some last-minute changes to the participants' list - similar to what happened in the ongoing closed qualifier for IEM Chicago.

Complexity will battle for a spot at ESL One New York

The invited quartet will be joined by four teams coming out of open qualifiers, three of whom will be in attendance at the upcoming Americas Minor: eUnited, Lazarus and TeamOne.

Below you can find the complete team list for the tournament:

UPDATE: ESL has since deleted the tweet listing the teams invited to the closed qualifier. We have reached out to ESL for clarification on this matter.

As crappy as the team currently is... 1. They lost to G2 last weekend 16-9 2. It looks like they might be fielding Daps, Tenz, & perhaps Koosta instead of what they had last week. 3. Who cares one way or another about Cloud9 as it looks likely the two qualifiers at this point may well be Furia and Envy

Clown9 wasted spot, they can't even beat The Quest and they get invited ??
2019-06-26 18:33
They will have a new team
2019-06-26 18:34
so ? they need to prove themselves before getting invites you fucking idiot

Lmao 2 major winners on this team “prove themselves” ya ok 👍
2019-06-26 19:00
still living in the past ?
2019-06-26 19:01
Lol, what kind of proof do you want that consists of something that is not in the past? How does that even work?
2019-06-26 19:04
they won the major a year and a half ago and you use that to justify them getting invites even though they've been dogshit since then. In that case I guess all the gambit guys should get invites at all those LANs too :>
2019-06-26 19:05
They 2-0’d eUnited and also beat Ghost in a BO3 both a month ago, 2 teams that are in this qualifier as well. Is that proof or no?
2019-06-26 19:10
And yeah, if Gambit still existed, had 4 well known top players, including 2 major winners, then yea. They would be getting invited to CIS Qualifier events

Has Ghost rebuilt and just no one realizes? Surely they wouldn't accept an invite w/o a team.

Cloud9 and Ghost declined invitations to this event. Not sure why HLTV doesn't know this. INTZ and New Identity took the two spots. Should I be hired to work for you or what? LOL
