Evil Geniuses joins the lineup of MDL Macau 2019 taking place next month in China.
Chinese fans have a lot to celebrate with the return of a premier LAN event to the city of Macau. While not part of the DPC this time around, the tournament will still be featuring some of the best teams from around the world and a $300,000 prize pool.
Three teams from China were able to qualify for the event - EHOME, RNG and Invictus Gaming. Five teams were directly invited. PSG.LGD and Virtus.pro were the first teams to confirm their participation, and then ViCi Gaming confirmed their place, followed by Team Liquid.
Now, the last spot has been officially claimed, but none other than Evil Geniuses. The North American team will make the trek halfway around the world for the Chongqing Major starting in just a few days, and then will be back again just one month later.
The LAN will be held February 20-24th in Macau, China after the DreamLeague Season 11 Minor qualifiers but before the main event - filling the gap between DPC events. Despite it being held at the same time as the ESL One Katowice LAN, some of the top teams are already slated to compete.
