There's also going to be an in-game event that's already happening that ends on February 16. This event allows gamers to try out, the new Stadium map which was made specifically for the Six Invitational. Meanwhile, those who buy the Battle Pass get the chance to unlock 35 tiers.

The inaugural tournament was in 2017 with Continuum beating out eRA Eternity for the championship. By 2018, PENTA went against Evil Geniuses with a match that went the distance. PENTA eventually won that one 3-2. Last year it was all G2 Esports, who was undefeated during the Group Stage and lost only one game on the Playoffs against Spacestation.
