mousesports, EG, fnatic & HAVU invited to Snow Sweet Snow 3 playoffs
The top-20 quartet has been invited to play in the $68,000 event's quarter-finals.
The organizers of Snow Sweet Snow 3 have invited MOUZ, Evil Geniuses, fnatic, and HAVU to participate in the tournament's playoffs bracket, which they will begin a round ahead of the eight teams coming from the Swiss group stage, in the quarter-finals.
The tournament will offer the three big names a chance for redemption. MOUZ will be hoping to gain some much-needed confidence after a month full of disappointing results with their new in-game leader, Christopher "dexter" Nong, and the same goes for fnatic and Evil Geniuses, who have just been eliminated from ESL Pro League after placing fifth and sixth in Group D.
Meanwhile, HAVU will look to build on an impressive start to 2021, which has so far seen the Finnish side win 17 in 21 matches (53 in 67 maps) in HLTV.org's records as they won two local tournaments as well as Snow Sweet Snow 2 and reached the semi-finals of the ongoing Pinnacle Cup 2021 after beating NIP on Saturday.
Snow Sweet Snow 3's group stage is currently underway. The first two playoffs teams will be determined in Wednesday's matches between Dignitas and Nordavind as well as Tricked and SKADE, with the last two rounds set to be played on Thursday and Friday.
The top-eight teams from the Swiss format will advance to the first round of playoffs, before its winners take on the four directly invited teams in the quarter-finals on Tuesday.
