Season Five’s Invitational is our first Invitational of Set 2: Omens of the Past! We’ve already seen some balance changes shuffle things up, and the meta of our Invitationals always takes a bit of a shift from our regular season.
As usual, there’s $250 and a ton of Series Points on the line – and we’re winding down to a close, there’s only one more season before our World Championships, with a Prize Pool of $3000. The winner of each Invitational gets a direct invite and the players that make Top 12 earn Series Points, which help them qualify for the event.
One of our most requested segments for the Invitational is a real Pre-Game show, and we now have enough casting staff that we can pull that off. I’ll be joined by Sir Rhino, starting at 11:15 AM EST before both days of the Invitational on the RNGEternal Twitch channel. We’ll be discussing the players, their decks, and the meta trends of the event.
The tournament is streamed live on RNGEternal’s Twitch channel over the course of two days. Day One action starts at 12pm EDT on Saturday, August 26th, and continues until only 8 players remain (after Winner’s Bracket round 3 and Loser’s Bracket round 4).
Day Two picks up where Day One left off – except instead of covering rounds, we’re going to be covering every single match! Day Two begins at 12pm EDT on Sunday, August 27th.
The whole tournament will be uploaded to the RNGEternal Youtube by Tuesday, August 29th.
Some of the best players in Eternal, that’s who. We’ve got a number of players making their third or fourth Invitational appearance in a row, as well as some skilled rookies hoping to put a crown on their breakout season. Some of these players are already household names while others are out to make a name for themselves. As follows is all the players, in seeding order:
Players are seeded as follows:
- Points / LCQ
With ties broken by Invitational Points, then Series Points, then if players are still tied, a random order is chosen.

Top 8 Predictions
For this invitational, three RNGEternal members wanted to share their predictions for the players they think will make day two and Top 8. As always, these predictions are just for fun – there are 32 players at the Invitational, but only 8 can make day two. Players are listed in alphabetical order. Without further ado, here are the lists:
