EPICENTER - Imperial, Hellraisers.

Australia Renegades! 
Imperial lost to AVANGAR on the final of the CIS Qualifier, but EPICENTER decide to invite HELLRAISERS who lost to Imperial in the quarterfinals of the qualifier. This is really fair, good job EPICENTER!

they cant even speak cis language (which is russian) i know estonians/latvians/lithuanians who can, i dont have anything against them participating in CIS quals but these guys stated themselves that they dont even know the language, and lets be honest, they wanted an easy road and couldnt even qualify.

2018-10-16 16:53

2018-10-16 16:52
They obviously dont have 3 players from the same region so they choose CIS

Actually yes, imperial did play in the cis qualifier because 3 of their player are from Lithuania and Lithuanians are able to compete in cis qualifiers. :)

The reason why they invited HR is maybe because of the Fanbase? You know bigger fanbase = more revenue

You really think that HR is better than Imperial?
2018-10-16 16:28
It is not about who is better and in general I would say they are better definitely, starseries was just very poor event for them, but point is surely #12 Hellraisers who was top 8 in major seems way bigger name than imperial ranked at #31.

HR is definetely better than Imperial. Imperial has to prove a lot to be considered a better team. HR is known like a much more complicated rival against good opponents than Imperial, atm. Imperial will have on the qualifier VP and Swole Patrol. If they´re really good, they´ll rekt both teams.

Ukraine isnt in cis anymore aswell,only hltv and tournament organisers seem to forget about it. Ukraine should play in normal EU quali. Ofc same Goes with lithuania. Now the argument about inviting a team who is "more CIS" is bullshit,therefore imperial should get an invite as theyve lost in the finał of the quali, not quarters

This is easy af to explain. Literally nobody interested to watch Imperial in Moscow. Well, tbh most of those who will go want to watch Na'Vi and VP. But at least HR have some fanbase in Russia, while Imperial has almost none, if any.

huh? 'Nobody in Russia is interested to watch' an NA team, a Finnish team and a Swedish team playing. Does this mean that they should be dropped from the event?

Well, basically, I mean that Imperial there have 0 name recognition. ENCE is a meme team(EZ4ENCE), NiP seems to have fans anywhere where people heard about CSGO. And Liquid and FaZe just big names. Liquid have some fans because of DOTA and FaZe because of NiKo and Guardian(I could say because of CoD, but nobody interested in CoD as cybersport). It's all about selling tickets, that's all. PS: There were also rumors that it might be last CSGO Epicenter. If it's true, then selling as many tickets as possible should be a priority.
