CR4ZY to attend Arctic Invitational; NRG withdraw
The one-day Arctic Invitational in Helsinki, Finland, will now have CR4ZY competing for the $100,000 prize pool. The European squad join FURIA on the tournament's roster while NRG, the first invited team to the event, have announced they are pulling out of the tournament due to scheduling conflicts.
CR4ZY, who have the Finnish AWPer Otto "ottoNd" Sihvo on their roster, are currently ranked #18 in the world, and were just one map win away from qualifying to ESL One New York through the EU qualifier, although they eventually lost the final's decider, Train, to G2.
The tournament, which will take place at the Hartwall Arena on September 14th, will feature one more invited team to take NRG's place as well as one Finnish team from a local qualifier, which will take place next month at Tubecon 2019.
