Vitality have become the third team confirmed for the $250,000 IEM Beijing, which will take place from Nov. 7-10.
Vitality, currently ranked No. 4 in the world by HLTV.org, join top-ranked Liquid and No. 2 Astralis in the eight-team event. Two more teams will be invited, with the final three spots filled through qualifiers: Asia, China and one via the GG.BET Beijing Invitational.
Vitality recently finished 5-8th at the StarLadder Berlin Major, and afterward the French team benched Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt and pulled out of the BLAST Pro Series Moscow.
The playoffs will be held at the Beijing University Students' Gymnasium, with the grand final being a best-of-five. The event will count towards the third season of the Intel Grand Slam.
