Quincy Crew and CR4ZY headline ESL One Thailand 2020 Online Americas direct invites

With Evil Geniuses stepping over to play in Europe while ESL One Thailand 2020 Online is running, the Americas are wide open for any team to step up and claim the spot of top Dota 2 team in the region. 

Outside of EG’s absence, the entire crew of usual suspects is present in the Americas Division main event, with the addition of monkeys-forever and 4 Zoomers.

In the first wave of direct invites for the event, Quincy Crew and CR4ZY headline the North American representation, while beastcoast and Thunder Predator look to take a tournament for South America during this online season. 

QC have been on a tear recently, winning all three of their last tournaments, including two that EG were actively competing in. Since reforming the team, SVG and his crew have only finished outside of the top four once, with multiple top two placements at big events over the last several months. 

Here’s the full list of teams that received direct invites, including the two squads that have been added to the Closed Qualifier roster.
