The organizers of Copenhagen Games 2018 have given the last direct invitation to their championship - Team Kinguin will not have to pass the qualifiers. Previously, Heroic, North, and QBF have received their invitations and four more participants will determine with a help of qualifiers.
The comment of TaZ about the invitations for his team:
«I'm very happy that we will be able to attend Copenhagen Games with Team Kinguin. I feel like it is great chance to show the talent that the guys have and push it all the way. We are a very young team, but last time I attended Copenhagen Games I managed to win it, so our aim is clear! I can't wait to step into the LAN game once again! Be sure to tune in, this Pinguin is planning to fly high!»
The tournament is scheduled from March 28 to April 1 in Denmark. Eight teams will fight for the prize pool in the sum of $100,000. All participants will be divided into two groups, where they will play by a Round Robin system with bo3 matches.
