FaZe invited to IEM Beijing

FaZe have accepted an invitation to attend the upcoming IEM event in Beijing, ESL has announced.

The European giants have secured the final invitation to the $250,000 competition, joining a stacked team list that includes four top-five sides in Liquid, Astralis, NRG and Vitality.

The announcement comes at a time when FaZe are still looking to resolve their roster issues. Filip "NEO" Kubski was recently given his marching orders after four months with the team and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács is rumored to be on the brink of a return to Natus Vincere to fill the spot left by Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko.

FaZe will compete at IEM Beijing in early November

IEM Beijing will take place from November 7-10, with the playoffs being held on stage at the Beijing University Students' Gymnasium over the last two days of the event, which will count towards the third season of the Intel Grand Slam.

The final three spots in Beijing will be taken by the winners of the GG.BET Beijing Invitational - which is currently underway - and of two Asian qualifiers, one of which just for teams from China.

The full team list for IEM Beijing 2019 is as follows:

United States Liquid
France Vitality
Europe FaZe
Asia Asian qualifier
Denmark Astralis
United States NRG
Europe GG.BET Beijing Invitational
China Chinese qualifier

probably they decided invites when faze ranking was good, start of august they were #6, also looking ranking that point it matches up with rest of the invites besides for ence missing but it could be they had some reason to not accept the invite, hence leaving us with these 5 invite teams.
