Playoff invites for Pinnacle Winter Series 2 announced
BIG, Entropiq, GODSENT and MIBR join the event for the playoff bracket.
The direct playoff invites for the Pinnacle Winter Series 2 were announced today, with a number of top 20 teams joining the fray; Entropiq, BIG, GODSENT and MIBR all come into the event fresh off competing at the IEM Katowice play-in, and are seeded into the quarter-finals.
The first round of the playoffs features the eight teams that made it through the best-of-three Swiss group stage, with K23 and Eternal Fire some of the bigger names involved.
Noticeably absent are runners up of the previous Pinnacle event Apeks and Marcelo "coldzera" David's 00NATION, who both failed to make it through the Swiss portion.
Not only is the lion's share of a $68,000 prize pool on the line but also a spot at LAN Sweet LAN 2022, an offline event featuring a massive $250,000 prize pool that is set to take place August 15 in Belgrade, Serbia; top names like Virtus.pro, OG and MOUZ are already amongst the team list for said event.
The full team list for the Pinnacle Winter Series 2 playoffs is as follows:
