iBUYPOWER Mythic Masters announced with $50,000; Extra Salt, EG, MIBR invited*

Tarik "⁠tarik⁠" Celik is set to represent EG as a part of an unofficial "Kings of Content" team as he streams his POV during the tournament.

UPDATE: Erik "⁠fl0m⁠" Flom has informed HLTV.org that Liquid are now unlikely to attend the tournament, and RBG have been invited in their place.

Mythic, in partnership with IBUYPOWER and Intel, has announced iBUYPOWER Mythic Masters Winter 2021, a $50,000 cup that will play out after PGL Major Stockholm from November 11 to 14 with the likes of MIBR and Extra Salt receiving invites.

The event is the latest in Mythic's efforts to help further the development of the North American scene, an initiative they first began with a series of standalone cups and events in 2020. According to fl0m, there will be much more to follow in 2022, with the 29-year-old teasing the possibility of regular tournaments that will be broadcast by the tournament organizer to continue shining a light on North American talent.

tarik will head up a stream team for EG during the tournament

The tournament will feature two groups of four teams that will fight through a best-of-three, GSL group stage, from which the top two from each will advance to a single-elimination playoff bracket.

HLTV.org knows that EG will take part in the tournament, but won't utilize their standard roster as their European members will remain overseas following PGL Major Stockholm, enjoying some time time to recuperate while the team have no other events lined up.

Instead, benched member tarik will head up an unofficial lineup for the organization named "Kings of Content", and will stream the matches on his own Twitch channel. It is currently unknown whether the team will feature any of EG's other North American members, or if tarik will play the event with a roster made from scratch.

A single spot in the event will be available to the winner of an open qualifier, which will take place from November 8 to 9. Teams can register for the event here.

Liquid probably won't attend with Blast coming up and staying in EU, so it'll probably be a stream team or one player from Liquid stays in NA for a bit of a vacation to do it
