Cloud9  announced their invitation to the 2019 BLAST Pro Series Madrid on Twitter yesterday:


They’ll join Astralis, Natus Vincere, and Ninjas in Pyjamas, as well as two unconfirmed attendees, to compete for a $250,000 prize pool.


The invite has drawn criticism from CS:GO fans, due to C9’s low ranking in the global standings. They’re currently placed 139th worldwide, and 28th in the US.


The BLAST Pro Series is marketed as “the world’s most exciting live esports tournament,” and brings CS:GO’s top teams together to compete in a five-round, best of one format, with the winners advancing to the grand finals.


A unique element at BLAST tournaments are the BLAST Pro Standoff, where the third-place team chooses their opponent for a 1v1 aim competition, with the winner claiming a $20,000 prize.


The final two places in the tournament will be filled by an international team, and one the top teams from Spain’s 2019 LVP SuperLiga Orange Spring. The competition is set to start on Friday, May 5 in the Pabellón Multiusos Madrid Arena in Madrid, Spain.
