Six Invitational 2022 is starting next month
Six Invitational 2022 will start on February 8th this year with the grand finals being held on February 20th. Last year, with their Brazilian roster, Ninjas in Pyjamas won the Six Invitational. In general, Six Invitational 2021 was dominated by Brazilian teams, NIP, Team Liquid, and MIBR finishing as top three of the tournament.
The last chance for MIBR to join this tournament is the Latin American Qualifier, while the fourth place, TSM, will have to play the North American Qualifier. The Brazilian teams that have already secured a spot here are FURIA, FaZe, NIP, TL and oNe. Most recently, Team Liquid defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas at the Brasileirão 2021 Finals. They will be coming in strong for this one.
While Team Liquid aims to get what they lost last year in the finals, Spacestation which won the 2020’s Six Invitational will also have a strong chance of winning it here. Global Standings where the teams’ performances all year long are rewarded shows that Team oNe had a great 2021. They had good results at Mexico and Sweden Majors. Talking about Brazilian teams, they have four teams in the top six, with European Team BDS and North American Soniqs and Oxygen joining them.
