Intel Challenge Supercup: Update

Posted by Linus "Tjernobylbarnet" Staaf at 07 October 2011 17:29
Due to some controversies about which teams actually will participate out of those who indeed qualified, GosuGamers will deliver the final five.

The six teams that originally survived the third group stage phase were Virus, Global Challengers, Emocore, Monkeybusiness, GosuGamers and Moscow 5. However, Virus and Global Challengers expressed their inability to attend due to issues with getting visas as the offline playoffs occur too soon after the group stage. Emocore and GosuGamers also declined on financial grounds. The only teams left were the Danish team Monkey and the Russians in Moscow5.

Since then, Emocore have managed to secure their arrival after all, and will be joined by the teams who failed to make it through the final groupstage: Hard Team and Na`Vi. Hard Team was more or less picked up by the organisation DTS, with some slight roster changes. They will attend under the name DTS. Na`Vi will participate with a modified roster as well.

The final five and their rosters as follows:
Denmark monkey: miGGel, AngeL, Link, Ryze, CalculuS
Russia Moscow5: PGG, NS, Dread, God, vigoss
Sweden Emocore: panterspot, Wagamama, Reesion, Mini, Doni
Ukraine DTS: ArtStyle, McDeath, Funn1k, dubas, Plet
Ukraine Na`Vi: Dendi, XBOCT, LightofHeaven, Deff, Mag
