In the European Contingent, fellow Danes Astralis and North have booked the top slots, while the remaining two spots were filled by Mousesports and NiP, in a dramatic finale that saw the German Org, who were tied on points with FaZe before the match, win both the best of 1 matches to secure 3rd place, and also help NiP who won 1 and lost the other against Fnatic which was ultimately enough for them to secure a spot.
The teams are as follows:
The total prize pool is $660,000 with the winner banking $250,000 alone.
Astralis have already made over $2 million in 2018. With prizes as huge as a quarter, the Danish roster might acquire additional half a million to their portfolio.
