Mineski have received the final direct invite to compete at the ESL One Birmingham Major. 

Mineski will be joining Evil GeniusesVirtus.proNewbeeTeam Liquid and ViCi Gaming with the honor of attending the biggest event and first Major to be held in the "Second City" of the United Kingdom. 

The SEA kings have had touch and go results in the 2017-2018 Pro Circuit season, ranging from 12-14th at Bucharest Major to champions at PGL Bucharest and most recently at DAC 2018. Now sitting in a comfortable 4th place in the DPC rankings with 3150 points, they are almost 1000 points ahead of the 5th place team —Newbee and are already scheduled to attend EPICENTER XL Major and MDL Changsha Major. 

The team of the hour has just finished an amazing run at DAC 2018, securing themselves their first Major trophy of the Dota Pro Circuit. Thanks to their recent success, their victory at the PGL Open Bucharest Minor at the start of the season and a couple of Top 4 finishes, they have now passed the likes of Newbee and Vici Gaming for fourth place in the current DPC rankings, giving them a comfortable position when it comes to TI8 invites.

The 12 team tournament has a prize pool of 1$ Million and 1500 Pro Circuit points and is scheduled to begin on the 23rd of May. Qualifiers for the six regions will be underway before the end of the month to determine the last teams to join the fight.
