FNRGFE made it to the top four in Season Zero of Overwatch Contenders and have earned a spot in Season One of the event, which is set to kick off mid-August. Envision failed to earn a spot in Season One after being swept by Team Liquid in Season Zero’s playoffs, and landing just outside of the top six spots.

The squads are replacing Evil Geniuses, which recently dropped its Overwatch team, and Cloud9, which has a prior commitment.

The BEAT Invitational will also feature Contenders Season Zero NA champions Immortals, as well as Tempo Storm, LG Evil, Team Liquid, Arc6, and CLG.

The tournament will take place July 7 to 9, and it has a prize pool of $6,000, an increase from the originally announced pool of $5,000. Beat Gaming also announced that AMD and Overbuff would be sponsoring the event.
