The 2 invited teams are Team DK and Na’Vi. The remaining teams teams were decided through qualifiers.
From the American qualifiers there were 2 slots available for grabs, unfortunately Cloud9 had to forfeit their slot (because of visa issues with one of their players Bone7), so Evil Geniuses and North American Rejects qualified. There was one more slot for both Europe and Asia Qualifiers, out of which respectively qualified Fnatic and VG .
This awesome tournament will begin in the 5th of June and it will feature not only Dota 2 games but all kinds of madness with the BTS crew and the players such as a Barbecue, a Pool Party, a Ping Pong Tournament and lots more so be sure to watch all the action in the Beyond The Summit TwitchTV channel!
