Cloud9 confirmed at Arctic Invitational
Cloud9 have been invited to compete at the Arctic Invitational, the event's organisers have announced.
The North American team will replace NRG, who decided to skip the event due to scheduling issues, taking the third and final invite to the $115,000 competition.
This will be the second LAN event for the new Cloud9 roster, which debuted at BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles, earlier in the month. Damian "daps" Steele's charges made it out of the groups with one victory, two draws and two defeats before losing out to eventual champions Liquid in the semi-finals.
The Arctic Invitational will take place on September 14 at the Hartwall Arena, in Helsinki. The four teams will be placed in a single-elimination, best-of-three bracket, with the winner taking home the first prize of ~$66,700.
The list of participants for the Finnish event now looks as follows:
