At the tournament will play 16 teams, team-winner will receive a cash award, a $ 150,000. Of the 16 participants, 8 teams are already known: “Natus Vincere”, “Fnatic”, “Astralis”, “Ninjas in Pyjamas”, “SK Gaming”, “Team Liquid”, “Virtus.pro”, “Gamers2 eSports”. Very interesting list of participants, because it contains two-time world champions “SK Gaming”, the finalists of “ESL One Cologne 2016” – “Team Liquid”. For this championship which is likely to be in the new line-up since the end of the championship in Cologne, Alexander left the team “s1mple” Kostylev, and his place was taken by the Dane Jacob “Pimp” Vinneche.
Just Poles from “Virtus.pro” does not intend to change its composition and will go to their cherished goal, the second gold in the Major-tournament. It is not known and that, in any part of “Astralis” approach the “Star League”, because the guys for the second tournament of the guys in the quarter final finish. If “ESL One Cologne 2016” guys involved with the replacement, and the result can be considered successful, because the two changes is almost complete change in the composition. That on “ELEAGUE” guys at full strength lost “Mousesports” very devastating. By the way the remaining 8 teams will be distributed as follows: two teams from the US Division, and the remaining six, three from the European and Asian regions. Recall that the Chinese qualifiers are already as 3 days, while Europe has not even been announced.
