Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Heaven Media has revealed the name of four more teams that will be in attendance at Esports Heaven Vienna next week.

Held on the weekend of February 23rd-24th at the five-star Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel, the Austrian event will be first major international tournament of 2013, with 16 teams battling it out for a piece of the €10,000 prize purse.

Last month, the event organisation caught the eye of the community when it announced that Ninjas in Pyjamas, VeryGames and 3DMAX had all signed up for the the tournament.

Later on, Natus Vincere confirmed that they would be in attendance at the event, which will be their first LAN competition since switching to CS:GO.

ESC Gaming, who are fresh from winning the CS:GO tournament at IEM Poland, will have in Vienna the opportunity to prove that their recent turn around in form is no coincidence.

Joining the participants' list are also Lemondogs, who lost to Virtus.pro in the Fnatic FragOut quarter-finals, LDLC.com, who were third at Epsilan 10, and CodeRed Gaming.

Meanwhile, Heaven Media has announced that Alienware, Mad Catz and PartyPoker have come forth to support the tournament, which will be called Mad Catz CS:GO Invitational.

HLTV.org will be in Vienna next week to bring you on-site coverage of the event, so stay locked to our website to find out all the latest news about this tournament.


Lemondogs - ESC Semifinal please!
2013-02-12 17:59:35
you are not in a restaurant...sry
2013-02-12 18:00:42
NiP - Verygaymes Semifinal please.
2013-02-12 18:02:32
true
2013-02-12 18:04:30
+1111
2013-02-12 18:09:01
NiP - Verygames first round please. Either way VG meeting NiP in finals just too obvious at this point, but I want to see something fresh.
2013-02-12 18:13:11
haha that's not so obvious as you think
2013-02-12 21:22:02
Actually from these teams 3DMAX and ESC can beat VG. If there will be Virtus.pro also, it won't be so easy for VeryGames.
2013-02-13 16:55:57
That would end up with nip winning the final with 16-0. VG is pretty much the only team who can beat them
2013-02-12 18:18:33
i think ESC have a bigger chance than VG as long as they keep ex6tenz. Smithzzz igl kick ex6tenz and +shoxie then we are talking.
2013-02-12 18:25:11
Signing players just because of their skill dosent always work out. Just look at SK when they had, on paper, the best lineup.
2013-02-12 19:36:15
what lineup are you refering to then?
2013-02-12 20:00:12
Many of em. We can take the one with trace as an example..
2013-02-12 20:02:58
language issue first of and robban was never good enough so they havnt had a strong 5man in very long. Compare it with Fnatics allstar lineup. Xizt Gux Friis Karrigan Moddii, it cant get better.
2013-02-12 20:06:01
As I said earlier, having the most skilled players dosent make you the best team in the world. It's pretty much down to how good the chemistry in the team is. NiP wouldnt be dominating the CS:GO scene if they all hated eachother. Get my point?
2013-02-12 20:08:43
Ex6 have been igl for his entire carrier it wouldn't work out with kicking ex6 and let smithzz be igl.
Will be to rough for smithzz tbh, because it's better teams now and it's alot harder to win against teams for them now then how it was from source.

ofcourse the team got problems but nothing they can't work out, they we're the best team for alot of years and VG will once again be Number1.
2013-02-12 21:58:25
Dream on dream on
2013-02-13 04:54:07
ex6tenz wasn't an igl his entire career.
2013-02-13 17:33:05
Carn was also igl his entire carrier. Xizt took over and look what happened.
2013-02-14 11:10:35
VG have lost more games with scream in the ~2 weeks they had him in comparison to the whole time they had RpK so your logic is flawed.
2013-02-13 07:22:32
why please? Everyone is bored of that match up already..
2013-02-12 19:32:09
Exactly, that's why he asked on the semifinal and not on the final
2013-02-12 19:40:53
I want NiP - ESC Final and ESC winning 1 map.
2013-02-13 09:01:20
Would like to see VG - 3DMAX
2013-02-13 08:24:49
