The second BEAT Invitational kicks off this weekend. A further two changes to the lineup have been announced following hot on the heels of last week's news that Rogue would be stepping in for Team Liquid. Alongside this an additional $1,000 prize money has been added to the pot, taking the total up to a cool $6,000, thanks to new sponsors Overbuff and AMD.
The recent roster release of Evil Geniuses also saw the playes themselves go their seperate ways, so their replacement comes as no surprise. Meanwhile Cloud9 have decided to bow out due to "prior commitments".
In their places are FNRGFE and EnVision. The former recently proved their credentials with a 3rd place finish in the $50,000 Contenders Season Zero playoffs and will be looking to continue that hot streak this weekend. While perhaps not quite as terrifying as Rogue being invited to the tournament, no one will be looking forward to playing these guys. They have two of the best tanks in North America and a quality supporting cast to back them up. Expect more upsets from these corndogs.
EnVision, had a much less successful Contenders. Falling out of the top six and failing to qualify for Season 1. A chance for redemption awaits them here in this stacked tournament. While they may struggle to get very far in this tournament, it will provide another opportunity to check out their current trial, Jaru.
It has yet to be announced whose spot each team will take but one will play LG Evil in the top half of the bracket, while the other takes on ARC 6 in the lower half. You can keep up with all the results and happenings on our event page.
