JT and company will compete in the fourth ESEA Cash Cup
ESEA have announced paiN and ex-Cloud9 as the recipients of the two invite slots for their fourth Autumn Cash Cup, set to play out this weekend from November 28-29.
As with prior Cash Cups, teams will enter a best-of-one, single-elimination bracket, with the two surviving sides advancing from the first day to the best-of-three championship round on Sunday. There, they will meet the invited teams, with the winners going on to play in the grand final with $4,000 on the line.
The tournament will mark ex-Cloud9's first appearance on HLTV since their release from the organization, and also their first appearance on the website since the addition of Gage "Infinite" Green. The team made their debut earlier this month in Mustache Masters, where they prevailed 2-1 over Yeah in the grand final. paiN, meanwhile, will look to defend their Cash Cup title after defeating GGPR 2-1 in the previous event.
Sign-ups for interested teams will remain open on ESEA's website until 1:55 PM on Saturday, with the likes of Eclipse, RBG, and Yeah currently on the team list.
