GG.BET New York Invitational groups and schedule revealed

The GG.BET New York Invitational organizers have announced the groups and schedule for their latest online tournament, which will serve as a qualifier for ESL One New York.

The GG.BET New York Invitational will be another qualifier for an ESL event, similar to the ones put together for IEM Sydney, ESL One Cologne, and IEM Chicago, with eight teams playing for a spot at ESL One New York.

forZe will have a shot at winning another GG.BET Invitational

The tournament will feature two four-team GSL groups with best-of-one opening matches and best-of-three winners, elimination, and decider matches, which will feed the four best teams into a single-elimination best-of-three playoff bracket. The winner will qualify for ESL One New York, while the loser will earn a $5,000 consolation prize.

The groups, which feature teams like Winstrike—who have been brought on to replace CR4ZY—, HellRaisers, Sprout, or forZe—who won the last Invitational but were unable to travel to IEM Chicago due to visa issues—, are the following:

Lol why tf are they still inviting faze to tournaments? Literally a waste of a slot. Also, Avanger top 10 in 6 months mark my words
2019-07-31 01:22
Someone tell ANGE1 to stop rushing alone every round and maybe HR could have some chances
