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. 

paiN overpower GGPR to win ESEA Autumn Cash Cup 3

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.

ex-Cloud9 reverse sweep Yeah to win Mustache Masters Season 2

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.

In a unpredictable (or not?) turn of events, the NA cups have become way better than the EU cups... EU cups are a joke when you look at the level of teams competing in them KEKW

There's always a lot more conflicting events in EU imo. I don't handle the EU invites though so I can't speak for every cup.

I'm not looking to place blame anywhere. Just sad to see how it's turned out, not that I want NA cups to be bad ofc, but last few EU cups are barely comparable to the NA cups. Glad NA cups are genuinely doing well. The cups are 2 day deals (1 for invites even), so it being a purely scheduling issue seems unlikely to me. Almost all the online EU events are also decently open to teams rescheduling their matches, so idk :/ Just wish we had the same level of teams that NA gets, but from the EU region.
