Carbon Entertainment, a professional organization dedicated to bringing people together through the power of gaming, is excited to announce the six invited professional Overwatch teams that will be competing in the playoffs of the Carbon Master October 2016 event. These teams are the top ranked in the region and have earned the right to skip the open qualifiers directly to the playoffs.
The final teams are:
- Faze Clan
- Tempo Storm
- Kingdom Esports
The invited teams were chosen off of external metrics for the very first Carbon Masters event. Moving forward, teams that place at the top of the playoffs bracket will be given the chance to jump straight to the playoffs of next month’s Carbon Masters event. This rewards the teams that place consistently high in the tournament. The remaining seeds will be filled through another open qualifiering event, allowing for underdogs to appear.
