Leading the second wave of invited teams are the Wild Honey Badgers, who put themselves in the spotlight last weekend by winning the Corsair Vengeance Dota 2 tournament at DreamHack. The Scandinavians are followed by TeamShakira who attended the event as well and beat previously invited SK Gaming, before ending up at fourth place.

Further invited have been the new Gamers League around DotA-veteran Kim 'Drayich' Larsson, as well as the three winners from the qualification tournaments. In the discipline Dota 2, the successor of 25cm which now wears the name Dota Dinosaurs, lead by Viktor 'Buktop' Knezevic, emerged victorious. Coming along from the qualifier in DotA are Belarussian Power Rangers and local heroes eSahara, featuring Funn1k, Dubas, Magus, Nexius and Jerry.

Listed teams are not to be taken as confirmed attendees yet, as flight- and visa-matters want to be handled first. Upon going on the journey however, the event will cover all expenses that arise from the stay during the 8th until the 11th of December, when the Dota 2 Star Championship takes place.
