Six teams received direct invites, namely â€“ G2, fnatic, Naâ€™Vi, Ninjas in Pyjamas, SK Gaming and
Virtus.pro. Team 123 have won the European qualifiers, while the slot for the eighth team goes to Tengri for winning the CIS qualifiers. The runner ups in the closed qualifiers already received $5,000 for performing well but falling just a little bit short in the qualifier.
The first EPICENTER: MOSCOW event last May proved to be successful, with the Dota2 event proving that â€œMoscow is capable of running top-tier event for the best teams out there,â€ says Mark Averbukh, CEO of Epic Esports Events. The success of the Dota2 EPICENTER event led to this second one, which will be featuring CS GO this time around.
EPICENTER: CSGO will run through October 17-23, to be held on the VTB Ice Hall in Moscow, Russia. It will be shown live on their twitch channel at www.twitch.tv/epicenter_en1.
