FURIA, Complexity among invited teams to Spring Sweet Spring 3 playoffs
The Brazilian side will look to secure their first title of the year as the highest-ranked team in attendance.
The organizers of Spring Sweet Spring 3 have announced the quartet of teams directly invited to the tournament's quarter-finals. FURIA, Complexity, Entropiq, and SKADE will enter the competition in the second round of the playoffs to face off against the four best teams from the opening stages of the event.
All eyes will be on the Brazilians as well as the 'Juggernaut' as the two biggest names in attendance. With both still yet to win a title in 2021, the two favorites will be looking to gain some much-needed confidence at the $68,000 event before they take on the world's best teams at IEM Cologne early next month.
Five out of the eight other teams who will begin their campaign in the bracket stage of Spring Sweet Spring 3 in the first round have already been determined in the Swiss stage. Copenhagen Flames and Endpoint went undefeated to advance, while Fiend, Anonymo, and 1WIN made it through to the playoffs with a 3-1 record.
The final playoffs trio will come from the last round of the Swiss group stage on Friday. EXTREMUM will hope to get back on their feet following losses to Anonymo and 1WIN earlier in the tournament as they are set to face Lyngby Vikings, before AGO square off against Budapest Five and Iberian Family take on Sharks.
