Team Liquid has been announced as the third and final direct invite for ESL One Frankfurt 2016. Formed in early October, just following the post TI5 reshuffle, the European mix has shown considerable talent, results and flair in their performances. When Team Liquid seized second place at Shanghai Major after taking down Alliance, MVP Phoenix and Evil Geniuses, they also captured the favor and seal of approval from tournament organizers and fans around the world.
ESL One Frankfurt 2016 closes out ESL’s $1,000,000 pledge to Dota 2 and brings the festivities back to Germany this June with eight of the best teams from around the world fighting for a $250,000 starting prize pool.
The event will unfold over the course of three days, between June 17-19. The closed group stages that will determine the seeding will be played on June 17th, followed by the main event scheduled to take place on June 18th and 19th at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt, Germany.
The eight teams – three directly invited, two qualified from Europe, one qualified from China, one qualified from the Americas and one qualified from SEA – will compete in a single elimination best-of-three bracket, with best-of-five Grand Finals. The format features a classic GSL style group stage ahead of the playoffs, that will determine the seeding.
