After eight weeks of exciting CS:GO Invite action, the top four North American teams have been determined. Unlike past seasons, there is more at stake for the top Invite squads.
Not only will the top four have the opportunity to travel to Dallas for the LAN playoffs to compete for a share of the cash prize pot, these four teams will have the opportunity to represent their continent in the first ever ESEA Global LAN.
The top seed belongs to the first-ever and reigning CS:GO Invite champs Quantic Gaming
thanks to a solid 14-2 record and a head-to-head victory over the second seed with a shared record. That team, Curse Gaming
, will make the team's first trip to the LAN playoffs, despite earning a playoff berth in Season 12.
The third seed belongs to Team Dynamic
, last season's runner-up. Dynamic earned the third seed with a 13-3 record. Rounding out the top four is Netcode Illuminati
, with a 10-6 record. While Quantic, Curse and Dynamic knew their playoff destiny in the later half of Week 6, it wasn't until the final two matches that Netcode knew their fate. With a Netcode win against Sour Patch Kids and and two straight mouseSpaz's losses on de_dust2, Netcode claimed the coveted final seed.
To determine how the North American and European teams combine to make the final eight seeds, a LAN All-Star game
will be played to settle seed order.
