Eight top NA teams will be competing at MLG Vegas 2016's Overwatch North American Invitational for a $100,000 prize pool Dec. 16-18.

Here's the full list of teams attending:

  • Team EnVyUs
  • NRG eSports
  • Cloud9
  • Fnatic
  • CompLexity Gaming
  • FaZe Clan
  • Team Liquid
  • Rise Nation

Though EnVyUs are one of the most dominant teams in the Overwatch scene — recently setting an all-time record, with a 57-game win streak leading up to the ESL Atlantic Showdown — they have yet to take home a Premier title. Their closest finish was second at the Overwatch Open, after a 3-1 loss at the hands of Misfits.

However, at MLG Vegas they'll have to contend with Fnatic, who likewise took Top 4 finishes at both the Open and the Showdown.

For NRG's revamped roster and new coach, the Invitational will be the first big test. We'll be watching to see if they can stand up to NA's toughest competition at Mandalay Bay in December.
