January 14, 2018

Esports Arena has announced the invite teams for Rewind II.

froyotech will get a chance to defend its title, and Se7en will get a chance to contest it once again, as both have received direct invites to this year's main event based on their placements last year and continued performance.

The final invite spots will be given to the top finishers of a closed qualifier, set to take place January 17th-January 18th. Eight top North American teams have been invited to contest the two remaining invites:

  • Ascent
  • Velocity eSports
  • SVIFT NA
  • Black Swan
  • Big Chips
  • King's Crew
  • Looking for Trouble
  • When Night Fauls

The eight teams will battle in a double-elimination best-of-three bracket, with the winner of the upper bracket final and the winner of the lower bracket final both receiving invites to the Rewind II main event. The remaining teams, as well as any other teams wanting to participate, will need to make their way in through the open qualifier taking place at the event to join the invited teams in the main event.

The closed qualifier action will be streamed live on teamfortress.tv, so be sure to tune in to see the road to Rewind II begin!

Yes yes everyone is poor in this side of the world.
Not even euro teams have all the money to go to lan most of the time, that's why they do fundraisers. Heck, sometimes even NA teams ask for fundraisers, too. We don't go because we suck.

Almost all South American countries also are not apart of the Visa Waiver Program in the US, meaning they have to go through the full process of applying for a Visa rather than an ESTA like a lot of European countries get to do. This process is an absolute nightmare and pretty much makes a team of six South Americans coming to the US for a TF2 tournament impossible.

I recall Powah wanting to go to ESEA LAN for Mad Men and, aside from financial concerns, the visa process is always what stopped him.

It's usually because getting a Visa is a fucking nightmare
