ESL One Birmingham powered by Intel is filling up quickly as we’re already prepared to welcome our third directly invited team to the UK. None other than Evil Geniuses are headed to central England to challenge Virtus.pro and Newbee for the title!
Evil Geniuses are currently in the thick of things in the DPC standings, holding down the fort in seventh place. But the likes of Na’Vi, Mineski and Fnatic are nipping on their heels in the quest to finish Top 8 for those coveted direct TI8 invites. Points are more important than ever for the Boys in Blue who currently hold a 236 point lead over 8th place Na’Vi. A great performance at ESL One Birmingham to close out the season could secure them a place at TI8!
So far the former TI champions have been unsuccessful at securing themselves an ESL One trophy this season, but they’ve had encouraging results with 3 finishes in the Top 6. Will ESL One Birmingham be their ticket to TI8? Find out in person by grabbing yourself one of the final tickets as we approach maximum capacity for the Arena Birmingham.
