iNTACT shattered as ESEA opt for Advanced ninth place decider

Not having a clear cut invite team, ESEA reveals a different approach to selecting the final spot.

With the MDL's relegation tournament arriving on August 28th, ESEA already has their Advanced and MDL teams confirmed for the event due to the way the new relegation system works. However, ESEA has reserved one spot in the event for themselves to invite a team of their choice. They've announced they have seen no clear cut team that deserves the spot, so they have opened the spot to the 9th-16th teams in the Advanced Playoffs.

The announcement of the event was met with backlash from the community who believed the 16-0 Main team, iNTACT, deserved the invite. The team has yet to drop a map in Main, including playoffs, and they had a decent run at Fragadelphia finishing 13-16th. Despite this, ESEA doesn't believe they earned the invite spot.

Despite the backlash, the matchups are as follows for the Pre-Relegation tournament:

Canada Glockoma vs. United States disADVANCtagED Aug 16th
United States InControl vs. United States Uber To Your Crib Aug 16th
United States Mentality vs. United States Reform Aug 20th
United States Guerrilla Tactics vs. United States Cerus Aug 22nd

The event will be a single elimination Bo3 bracket. The semi-finals are to be played on August 23rd, with the finals to be played on the 26th.
