ESL One NY teams and brackets announced! 30.08.2015 Author // HighArT

With one day left before the Europe main qualifiers for ESL One New York will start, all the invited teams have been revealed along with a few format changes. The Eastern Dota 2 scene has been affected dramatically by the post TI5 shuffle, with only a handful of teams left untouched or with minor roster changes. Because of that, ESL decided for the upcoming qualifiers to bring back a retired format that splits the teams in two tiers.

Tier 1 invited teams:

RUTeam Empire
UANatus Vincere


Both these teams have not finished yet their roster changes, Empire being one player short while there is no official announcement about Na’Vi’s future lineup besides releasing from duties their captain Ivan 'Artstyle' Antonov. Their International 5 attendance is what gave them the privilege of tier one ranking which means that they will be waiting for the first round of games to be finished before entering the competition.

Tier 2 invited teams:

SEAlliance
SENinja in Pyjamas
RUVega Squadron
BYArcade.Power Rangers
EU4 Clovers & Lepricon​
EUMonkey Freedom Fighters
EU5Jungs

Open qualifier winners:

RUnewteam123123
GRGolden Boys
EUAbraxas

The European qualifiers will take place form August 31 to September 6th with a single elimination bracket, best of three matches. The final will be BO5 and will determine who will be joining Team Secret at Madison Square Garden ESL One New York 2015. 

As you can see in first round we will face team EE's Disciples in best of 3 series. Match will be played on Wednesday 17:00 CET!
