Gambit and G2 have been invited to join the GG.BET Shuffle Finals stage, while INS has joined the lineup of ORDER, replacing Sico.
Gambit and G2 receive an invitation to GG.BET Shuffle
Earlier today it was reported that Gambit Esports and G2 Esports will be the final two teams to be invited to the GG.BET Shuffle Finals stage, alongside ENCE eSports and OpTic Gaming. Unlike the other teams to participate in this event, the above-mentioned four will go directly to the Playoffs.
This will be G2’s first appearance in about two months, having last played in the DreamHack Open Valencia 2018, where they ended up in the 5 – 6th brackets. Gambit, on the other hand, just competed in the FACEIT 2018 Qualifiers, though they were not able to make the cut and proceed to the New Legends stage.
The GG.BET Shuffle will begin on 24 September and is set to conclude on 20 October, featuring a $5,000 prize pool. Additionally, the first place winner will also receive a spot in the Intel Extreme Masters XIII in Chicago later this November, filling in the last available position.
INS join ORDER
In other news, ORDER and Tainted Minds are experiencing a shift in their roster. INS is leaving the latter to join ORDER, having played with Tainted Minds for about nine months. During INS’s tenure with Twisted Minds, the team went on to compete in multiple Oceania and Asian tournaments, usually achieving anywhere between first and fourth place. Not a bad record when all is taken into account.

INS has done quite well for himself during his stay with Twisted Minds and now will join ORDER, who have just dropped Sico from their roster. ORDER is a team quite active in the Australian scene and has won two tournaments in 2018, so far. These include the Gfinity Elite Series A and the WESG 2017 Asia Pacific Finals.
As of this announcement, the ORDER lineup looks like this:
- Emagine (Team Captain)
