Perfect World announced two first teams who got direct invites to their minor tournament – Newbee and LFY. Newbee are the runner-up of the recently finished The International 2017, LFY placed third. Both teams kept their rosters, so it made them an obvious choice for the Chinese organizer. Perfect World will announce the third invited team in the near future.
Perfect World Masters is going to be held on November 19-26 in Shanghai, China. Ten teams will compete for $300,000 prize pool and 300 Qualifier Points.
