ESEA Invite 11 moves to finals
Twelve teams competed in ESEA Invite Season 11 with the field being cut down to just the top six who have qualified for LAN finals taking place at the end of June.
Overwhelming favorites former Back2Back topped the regular season with an impressive 15-1 record with their only loss coming in without starter Kory "semphis" Friesen in their last game. Paul "pauLy" Guerboyan's Ultimax Gaming achieved the second seed.
Check Six removed Spencer "hiko" Martin from their roster after last season and Matt "Warden" Dickens returned to activity. Derrick "impulsivE" Truong also came back for season 11 and reunited with former Gravitas Gaming teammates Joe "perez" Perez and Shaun "hostile" Catron in HRG.

As opposed to the previous seasons where the maps were pre-determined and announced weeks before the finals took place, this season will feature the standard veto system for map selection.
ESEA Invite Season 11 Finals will take place in Dallas, TX on June 29-July 1. Although ESEA does not allow HLTV.org to host our own HLTVs, we will still cover the event with hot matches to give fans a chance to follow the action.
