The championship will be held online from August 3 to August 7. Eight teams will take part in the fight for the only invitation to ESL One New York 2019. The vice champion will receive a consolation money prize of $ 5,000.
Who will win?
In our opinion, such teams as forZe and OpTic Gaming.
forZe won in the last tournament from GG.Bet and thus earned themselves an invite to IEM Chicago 2019. True, they could not fly to it, because they did not resolve visa difficulties. In the recent CIS-minor forZe won first place and made their way to the Major-tournament. All this suggests that facecrack with his friends is in excellent game form and is one of the main favorites to win the GG.Bet New York Invitational.
OpTic Gaming also have good chances, but their game form leaves much to be desired. In mid-June, they won the tournament with a prize pool of $ 100,000. This competition will allow them to fly to New York in order to participate in the division of $ 200,000. Therefore, players should try and perform well.
Who has little chance?
Have BPro Gaming and Winstrike
BPro for a long time is quite weak. We see no prerequisites for Bpro to enter at least the top 4 of this event.
Winstrike was already not a very strong team, and after exchanging Boombl4 for Edward, the squad lost firepower. In our opinion, Winstrike can be considered outsiders of this competition. In GG.Bet New York Invitational there are many other teams that will successfully compete for the Grand Final of the tournament.
