EPICENTER has revealed the teams participating in its $500,000 event in Moscow.
The tournament will feature eight teams, with Dignitas and Hellraisers having made it into the event through closed qualifiers alongside six other invitees.
They will be divided into two groups and play in a best-of-two round-robin system – the best team from each group will advance to the semi-finals, while the second and third best team will start the playoffs in the quarter-final.
The teams featuring in EPICENTER are as follows:
|GROUP A||GROUP B|
Apart from listing the participants, EPICENTER has also released the schedule for the tournament:
- October 17th – Group Stage Day 1
- October 18th – Group Stage Day 2
- October 19th – Group Stage Day 3
- October 22nd – Quarter-finals
- October 23rd – Semi-finals & Grand final
The week-long tournament will start on Monday, with three days of group stages, each team playing one match per day.
But after the groups have concluded there will be a two day break before the playoffs begin, with the quarterfinals taking place Saturday, and the semi-finals and grand final being held on Sunday. The playoffs will be held in the VTB Ice Hall arena.
