Should OGN Apex Season 3 spots be earned or invited?

With Misfits not invited to the OGN Apex Season 3 there have been a lot of rumors and talks about how the invites to the tournaments should be decided. Why did NRG, a roster which has not played a single game together be invited over other teams which have repeatedly proven themselves to be a tough contender.

After accepting their invite to the tournament, NRG replaced Seagull with Mendosukai. There is nothing to suggest, that despite having one of the best rosters in Overwatch NRG can crush their opponents. Personality issues and team cohesion play an important part in any Overwatch team and it will be seen later how they will perform in this new roster.
