Extra Salt and Mythic have received invites to take part in the sixth ESEA Winter Cash Cup, which is slated to kick off tomorrow at 2 PM EST.
The tournament will mark Extra Salt's second appearance since the benching of Ian "motm" Hardy and the addition of Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado. The team are also currently just one match shy of booking a ticket to DreamHack Open March, having gone undefeated through the upper bracket of the Closed Qualifier and with just RBG left in their way.
The invite will also mark Mythic's first time in the top four stage of an ESEA Cash Cup since the first Winter edition, where they were felled 1-2 by paiN in the grand final. Erik "fl0m" Flom's side have gotten off to a solid start in ESEA Premier Season 36, residing upon a 4-1 record with their only loss being to Oceanus.
The sixth ESEA Winter Cash Cup will notably see the return of Bad News Bears, who were forced to sit out of the previous event due to ESEA's ruleset preventing them from taking part after winning back-to-back cups. A number of other notable teams are also signed up to compete, including High Coast, paiN, Rebirth, Triumph, Third Impact, Recon 5, Rise, GGPR, ImPerium, Levitate, and The Commission.
Registration for tomorrow's Cash Cup will remain open on the ESEA event page until 1:55 PM EST, with the event kicking off just five minutes later.
