Roobet Cup 2023 Invites Europe’s Finest: Astralis, NiP, and More
Astralis and Ninjas in Pyjamas have emerged as the crown jewels of the initial invite list, capturing the spotlight as the only top-10 ranked teams unveiled thus far. This dynamic European duo, known for their relentless pursuit of excellence, is set to ignite the competition at the upcoming Roobet Cup 2023.
They won’t be alone in the quest for glory, however. Joining the race are three other formidable contenders, each ranked within the top twenty of the esports echelons: Virtus.pro, Fnatic, and 9INE. With their impressive track records and dedicated fan bases, these teams promise to add further intensity to the tournament’s proceedings.
Rounding out the European ensemble is none other than the reigning champions of Roobet Cup 2022, BIG. This time, the German team will be entering the competition with a fresh roster. While this change may raise questions about their championship potential, one thing is for sure: they will contribute to the excitement and competition at the event.
FURIA and 9z Bring South American Firepower to Roobet Cup 2023
Among the exclusive roster of invited teams, two exceptional squads, FURIA and 9z, stand out as the non-European representatives. These South American powerhouses are making waves on the international esports scene, and their participation in the Roobet Cup 2023 adds a thrilling global dimension to the tournament.
What makes 9z’s inclusion particularly remarkable is their status as the only team from outside the top 30 rankings to secure an invite. This underdog story is a testament to their dedication and the impressive strides they’ve made, earning them a well-deserved spot among the elite.
Both FURIA and 9z have a unique opportunity to make their mark and challenge the established European dominance.
Their current presence at ESL Pro League S18 in Malta only underscores their commitment to honing their skills on the world stage. As they embark on this exciting journey, fans can anticipate breathtaking clashes and the potential for surprising upsets, showcasing the true spirit of competitive Counter-Strike.
