The team list for Assembly Winter 2013 has been finalized with partyastronauts winning the online qualifier while TOOMUCHVIDEOGAMES will replace Temp.no.
Although seven teams were announced two weeks ago, Jon "DaY" Thomas Rudstrøm's Temp.no decided to skip over Assembly Winter due to undergoing a roster change.
The online qualifier was won by Norwegian Halvor "vENdetta" Gulestøl's team, partyastronauts, which means the Finnish event will see a foreign team attend after all.
To replace Temp.no, the organizers invited TOOMUCHVIDEOGAMES, a Finnish mixteam who went out in the semi-finals of the online qualifier and feature three Curse members in Aleksi "allu" Jalli, Joona "natu" Leppänen and Jonas "ScurK" Finnilä.
Even Timo "reflex" Rintala has found his way to Assembly Winter 2013 although Curse declined a direct invitation just days ago, as he will be a stand-in for "from roihuvuori h00ds".
Finally, three teams have changed names being invited; Team Mistral is now known as Paranoia, MOV3MEBER as Team Refuse and Kepardit as Eternity Gaming.
This brings the finalized team list for the 3,000€ Assembly Winter 2013 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament to:
