dapr and co. are headed to New York
Dust2.us can reveal that eUnited will be replacing Chinese team 5POWER for the upcoming MSI MGA secondary tournament at ESL One New York. The cause for the switch is due to the Chinese players of the Asian side participating in the WESG 2018 China qualifier.
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.
