IEM Season VIII - Cologne will welcome a myriad of high profile names, shaping up to be one of the most highly stacked IEM events in history. 

Seven WCS grand finalists and nine more premier tournament champions and runner ups are flocking to Cologne, Germany for the last IEM stop before the World Championship in Poland. Those are mixed in with a good deal of non-Korean fan favorites like Grubby, TLO, Socke and MaNa to make for an interesting line-up on paper.

Several changes have been made to the official list of players published by ESL last night. Bly, StarBuck and Elfi, who were set to compete in the open bracket of the tournament, have cancelled their participation. As the event is just a week away, replacements should be announced soon.
