EnVyUs invited to CCS

EnVyUs are the first side to receive an invite to the CS:GO Championship Series (CCS) league.

Last week, Romanian e-sports company PGL announced the first details about its new European league, featuring a whopping $110,000 prize purse and season finals at DreamHack Bucharest, in late April.

A total of eight teams will be taking part in the league, six of whom will be invited by PGL, while the remaining two participants will come from online qualifiers.

Yeah, same Fnatic that were forced to play with two stand ins who aren't even professional CS:GO players.
2015-02-16 16:18
Poor excuse... They had a standin for 2 games not the whole season.
2015-02-16 16:20

2015-02-16 16:07
But...EnVy line-up have never beat Fnatic at a lan, i dislike Fnatic but saying EnVy are better than them is just wrong.

I read CSS and thought "what year is it?"
2015-02-16 16:02
People doubting PGL are either bad trolls or just stupid. PGL has been a long time partner of WCG(more than 10 years, they got a reward some years ago for that). They've hosted IESF 2013 World Championship. Read: wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/IeSF_2013.. Read here also: iesf.ro Plus, they represented the host of DreamHack stops in Romania for more than 3 years now, all prizes being handed, 100% transparency. Also, this is the first year that PGL will be the host of two separated DreamHack stops in Romania in two different cities, Bucharest in april and Cluj-Napoca in october if I remember well. Read here: dreamhack.ro They've been running national championships since God remembers when... They're among the most trustworthy organizations that reside in eastern Europe(E-Frag for example)... Though you could count them among the continent's most trustworthy organisations since they'll run in the close future this European Championship. :)

Good job by those guys :)
2015-02-16 16:29
Isn't WCG still missing out payments?
2015-02-16 16:47
I don't really know if WCG is missing out on payments, but PGL surely isn't, they're only a partner of them, organising in the past WCG qualifiers for romanian teams and so on.
2015-02-16 18:37
Lol that image with the fucking noob Sf and KQLY
2015-02-16 16:57
Where do you see Sf and KQLY in that picture?
2015-02-16 17:11
They'll win this ez pz.
2015-02-16 17:13
I'm wondering what that Last Chance Tournament is. Are only the top one team from each group going to advance, while the other six fight it out in that tournament to determine the other two advancing? Or will all 8 teams go to the final, with the group stages determining seeding?
2015-02-16 17:13
uhm, shouldn't it be the...uhm...romanian flag instead of eu?
2015-02-16 17:28
that kioshima's neck will haunt me forever
