Represented by Dominik "Hawki" Gryga, Vojtěch "Double" Ptáček, Filip "RedgieBeardo" Tutko, and Matěj "Nowikk" Krmela, Team Entropiq has earned the privilege to compete in the star-studded contest.
The black-and-greens have made it through five qualifying rounds, emerging as one of the top seven teams from a field of just under 200. Entropiq then waltzed through the Group Stage, featuring not only qualifiers but a plethora of the European heavy hitters who had received a direct invitation to the 24-team round.
Having locked the final berth, our players are now once again getting ready to rub shoulders with some of the most accomplished teams in Europe, including Liquid, FaZe Clan, NaVi and TSM.
"It's an honor to compete against these teams. I'm happy that we've been able to reach their level," Double said, adding: "We must keep improving."
RedgieBeardo shared the excitement, saying: "It's every player's dream to play against the juggernauts on such a big stage. We're currently having the best times of our gaming career."
The PCS Grand Finals will feature a total of 18 matches spread across three six-game sessions. With the juicy prizes on the line, the contest is set to draw a great deal of attention from the European PUBG community.
Furthermore, there's more at stake with the invitation to the $200,000 guaranteed PCS Europe also up for grabs. Liquid, FaZe, NaVi, TSM, RYE, and ENCE have all been already invited to the Group Stage. Six more teams will join them, based on the Charity Showdown standings. The bottom four will be seeded in the Closed Qualifier.
