eUnited were the second placed team in the North America qualifier for MSI MGA, where they fell 2-1 to compLexity in the final. This will be eUnited's first LAN event after their 7th-8th finish at the invite-only DreamHack Open Montreal, which took place during the New Challengers Stage of the FACEIT London Major. The two events should serve as a good warmup for the young team, as they look forward to IEM Chicago.

This is actually an interesting tournament, Avangar is on the up, it'll be nice to see what mixwell can do with his spanish squad, and it's always fun to see NA teams play against international opponents.
