The team list for IEM Beijing just got even more impressive. NRG joins a lineup of squads including Liquid, Astralis, and Vitality. These teams represent four of the top five teams in the world and will be looking to fight tooth and nail for the top spot in Beijing.
NRG recently finished in the semifinals of the StarLadder Major in Berlin after an impressive run through the event. Since adding Peter “stanislaw” Jarguz things have been looking up for the North American side.
NRG picked up wins over Renegades, Liquid, Astralis, AVANGAR, Syman, TYLOO, and Natus Vincere during their run in Berlin. They eventually fell to Astralis in their rematch during the semifinals.
The event taking place in the Chinese capital will be held from November 7th to 10th and have $250,000 up for grabs. Fans can watch the playoffs live from the Beijing University Students’ Gymnasium.
The event will be the fourth of the Intel Grand Slam’s third season, giving teams a chance to move one step closer to the $1 million prize.
One invite remains for the event with the remaining three spots going to the top finishers at the GG.BET, Asian, and Chinese qualifiers.
