iBUYPOWER released initial details for iteration of their online contest series. The tournament is only going to be available for North American squads as there will be no real world finals. Eight teams in the region will fight for their particular share of a $16, 000 prize pool on 04 1st - 2nd.
The very last edition of iBUYPOWER match series, the Fall Invitational, featured strong sides like SK Gaming, OpTic along with Immortals with the latter succeeding the event. Unfortunately for the organisers, the Spring Invitational will more than likely miss some of the best teams from region. SK Gaming, Immortals and CLGwill be participating in StarLadder i-League Season a few which is set to kick-off merely two days after the iBUYPOWER Early spring Invitational.
Details regarding the supposed teams, tournament formatting or perhaps prize distribution have not recently been revealed yet. iBUYPOWER Slide Invitational did not feature a groupings stage, the event immediately expelled off with a single-elimination best-of-three bracket from the quarter-finals. The newest iBUYPOWER event distributed it is prize pool as $12, 000 for the winner, $4, 000 for the runner-up in addition to $1, 000 for the 3 rd and fourth placed competitors.
