Curse has announced that it will host a four-team invitational tournament on Friday with $10,000 on offer.
Following up on the success of its North American invitational tournament, which saw eLevate take home the top prize, Curse has partnered up with ESEA to host the second Alienware Area51 cup, this time for European teams only.
The list of participants has been reduced to just four teams, who will square off in a best-of-three single-elimination bracket, with the winning side securing the top prize of $7,000, whereas the losing finalist gets $3,000.
