The Russian studio Game Show has announced the participating teams in their upcoming league competition.

The Game Show Studio has announced the ten teams from all across Europe that are participating in their tournament which was announced a month ago. The competition looks like it's having an online group stage, which the schedule has yet to be announced, followed by a LAN playoff/final.There are two groups of five, and the top two teams from each group will qualify for the finals tournament at the Corcus Expo during the IgroMir expo. The LAN event will run from October 2-5. The league features a $22,000 prize purse, and even includes an additional $2,000 dollar travel stipend for each team that qualified. 

That travel stipend is probably an extremely nice thing to have, as travel expenses can be a problem for some teams getting to LAN tournaments. The league has potential to be very interesting, as heavies such as Virtus.pro, NaVi, Hellraisers, and mousesports are among the teams competing. The groups also feature daT Team, who played in ESL One Cologne, as well as the relatively new UnWanted lineup, both are teams that have potential to take games off of the crowd favorites. This is surely a tournament worth watching.

 

Group A Group B
Poland Virtus.pro Ukraine Natus Vincere
Germany mousesports Ukraine HellRaisers
Sweden UnWanted Germany Planetkey Dynamics
Russia Nostalgie Finland ENCORE
