Team list for Clutch Con finalised

The organisers behind Clutch Con have released the full participants' list for the CS:GO tournament.

The North American event will take place from January 30 to February 1 in Denver, with 16 teams, 14 male and two female, facing off in this mixed CS:GO tournament, featuring $15,000 in cash prizes.

The 16 participants will be drawn into four groups of four teams, with the top two sides advancing to the quarter-finals, which will use a best-of-three system.

Eric "adreN" Hoag's Team Liquid, who previously donned Denial's colours, and eLevate, who recently underwent a double roster change, are the last two invites teams for the tournament. The list of participants is completed by Paradox and SKDC, both of whom come from an online qualifier, and by Swarm Gaming, the winner of a local LAN qualifier.

The full list of participants for Clutch Con is the following:

United States Cloud9 Sweden fnatic
Brazil KaBuM.TD United States Torqued
United States Karma United States UBINITED
United States WinOut United States eLevate
United States Denial United States Team Liquid
United States ex-iBP United States ex-mouseSpaz

Torqued with 6 players, that's why they are that good :O
2015-01-14 07:54
Torqued have 6 players for a number of reasons, but the main reason is m0e's ESEA ban.
2015-01-14 08:20
frozt has a job i think. He just plays for them in esea.

fnatic doing some tourism and getting paid in the end. I don't even thinkj it's useful to make them play, they should give them the check directly and make the tournament with the other teams so everybody save time.
2015-01-14 03:14
Old iBP gave them a challenge @ FACEit when Fnatic where at their best winning streak and with iBP upgrading to Hiko while I agree it's extremely unlikely that anyone will be able to defeat Fnatic I hope iBP can at least give them a challenge.
2015-01-14 03:20

France Puppet* 
Yeah, IBP and C9 used to be a hard challenge for any team but lately they're truly disapointing. I hope they make a come back at the top though, it's in the interest of the game that NA has a scene to compete with Europe.
2015-01-14 03:24
Judging from the results they sure as fuck haven't upgraded.

Fnatic's got their first tournament win of the year in the bag it seems.
2015-01-14 03:42
why does it have to be classified as mixed... a girl team is just a team on a video game.. stop making it a big deal... we're all equal in a game fucking ridiculous
2015-01-14 03:43
it's not a big deal, you're the one making it out to be one. all-female tournaments are held because they don't compete at the same level as the male teams. they're welcome to compete and some occasionally do but generally speaking they get blown the fuck out. they want to win money of course, so they compete in all-female tournaments. it's not sexism, just e-sports. it's called a mixed tournament because it's neither a female tournament or a regular male tournament. it's a mixed tournament, with both male and female teams.

it IS sexism. I'd like to see a mix of male-female team.

2015-01-14 09:53
they want to win money of course, so they compete in all-female tournaments. it's not sexism, just e-sports. How is that not sexism? Female only tournaments exclude men, ergo men are being discriminated against. Every other tournament is for men and women.
2015-01-14 07:38
ok the diffrence is men want to earn shit women want to get shit for free you discriminate against women if you dont want them to get shit for free you cant discriminate against men because we dont want free shit we want to earn our shit

NA Event, yet Fnatic are playing, is this a joke? We all know and they all know, Fnatic are going to win this easy. Clutch Con, just decided "lets have Fnatic come, even though they are one of the best teams in the world, and the NA teams are shit."
2015-01-14 06:08
Obviously because fnatic was already in the us so why not stay and give clutchcon more exposure while they win some cash and have a nice minivacation. Going to Finland doesn't feel nearly as interesting.

They do, but they don't step up from tier 3 to beating the top of tier 1.
