Better late than never, I think there ought to at least be a post about QuakeCon 2019 here.
10 players from Europe and 10 players from the Americas have been invited.
Representing Americas: br1ck, cha1n, DaHanG, dramiS, Effortless, nosfa, psygib, rapha, sib, whaz
Representing Europe: Av3k, base, Cooller, GaRpY, k1llsen, RAISY, Spart1e, toxjq, vengeurR, Xron
Note: Cypher was also invited but visa is still an issue, so he once again can't compete. It is also the case for Serious and possibly Agent.
Game mode is the new mode 'Timelimit Duels' in Quake Champions. Prizepool is yet to be determined, but this tournament is the kickstart to a whole season of Quake.
