IronGaming starts with NiP, Na`Vi

IronGaming LAN's $13,000 CS:GO tournament, featuring the likes of NiP, Na`Vi and Exertus, is about to finally kick off.

A total of eight teams are present in Austin for the tournament, which convinced the two DreamHack Summer finalists to extend their stay in the United States after ESEA Finals.

As we previously reported, Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev has finally arrived in Austin, and will be suiting up for Na`Vi after having been temporarily replaced by Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko last weekend.

Group A is set to begin any minute, while group B is schedule to start tomorrow at 16:00 . Each team will advance to the playoffs from the groups, which are used only to determine seedings.

Group A Group B
Sweden NiP Ukraine Natus Vincere
United States Frag Machines United States MM3
United States Hold My Purse Canada Armata
United States Heat United States Exertus

Playoffs will be played using a standard single elimination best-of-three format, with IronGaming sticking to the five maps from the previous CS:GO majors, without de_cache or de_season.

We've also managed to gather the full rosters for each of the eight participants, including a surprise team with former 3D members Salvatore "Volcano" Garozzo and Kyle "Ksharp" Miller:

Sweden NiP f0rest, Fifflaren, friberg, GeT_RiGhT, Xizt
Ukraine Natus Vincere Edward, GuardiaN, seized, starix, Zeus
United States Frag Machines kire, Ksharp, Miller, Volcano, warmachine
United States Exertus moses, TM, Storm, Warden, Xp3
United States Hold My Purse emuhleet, moXie, kalypso, Sapphire, Starlight
United States Heat godson, odjur, pho, prism, tomcho
United States MM3 boyer, freeway, Frisco, klutch, webster
Canada Armata d00m, samr0ck, Romulus, N/A, N/A

Grand final is tentatively scheduled to begin at 16:00 on Sunday, and we will do our best to add hot matches for the most important games of IronGaming LAN.

I think this LAN is a victim of NA orgs being shit/not prepared to invest in their teams
2014-07-04 21:47

No, this LAN is victim of the tournament organizers only inviting one american team (Exertus) and using the other invites for European teams. Then making it where only amateur teams could participate in the qualifier. It was only after VP decided not to attend that they invited coL/iBP. By then coL/iBP already booked flights for ESEA and it would've cost more money to change flight dates, hotels, etc than it was worth to attend. Plus I'm sure the players have other real life commitments where they couldn't just up and take off for the entire week after ESEA to attend this on such short notice.

Hiko said on his stream today as a lot of people asked this question that not coL nor iBUYPOWER were initially invited and when coL's spokesperson or whoever ask IronGaming if they could have a slot, then IronGaming told them there was apparently nor more slots left and they were all given away to local teams (if im no mistaken), but then suddenly IronGaming found the slot(s), but when they asked coL if they'd still want to come then it was already too late for coL to make the decision, so the mistake and confusion comes from IronGaming and has nothing to do with coL's organization. Not sure if the same story applies to iBUYPOWER or not, but that's how it is with coL, so if IronGaming didnt screw up initially and gave a slot to coL on the 1st day then coL would have attended as simple as that...
