This announcement marks iBUYPOWER's return to sponsoring CS:GO events, as their last event, iBUYPOWER Masters IV, was nearly three years ago. That event notably marked the beginning of Liquid's era as they notched their first win against Astralis. Unfortunately, despite the initial announcement, Liquid have elected to skip this event, Erik "fl0m" Flom revealed to HLTV.org. In their place RBG have rounded out the invites.
One more interesting wrinkle is that despite Evil Geniuses being on the invite list, it will not feature the organization's lineup, and will instead be a content team set up by benched Evil Geniuses' member Tarik "tarik" Celik.
The team list for iBUYPOWER Mythic Masters Winter is currently:
|Bad News Bears||Evil Geniuses|
As previously mentioned, the open qualifier is set to start next week on November 8th. Interested teams can sign up here. Some of the notable teams already signed up include Northern Forces, ATK, and Brazen.
Unfortunately, the event is set to conflict with Fragadelphia's first Major $10k event in Philadelphia, which is set to run from November 13th-14th.
