Ty mate. Didn't expect a real answer.
2015-10-13 13:06
That's bullshit. Even if roster changes or players leave nip organisation. As long as 3 players from current Nip stick together in whatever org, that team will continue competing in SL.
2015-10-13 13:50
NiP will most likely get G2 spot since NiP will probably aim to get Maikelele, Dennis and Rain.
2015-10-13 14:21
IE? ocelote already said that he wont release somebody to nip because its a "dying dinosaur"
2015-10-13 15:10
I hope he doesn't, nip as an org deserves to die.

not north america when 2 brazilian teams are attending is it
2015-10-13 13:04
Go away
2015-10-13 13:11
if it were 2 brazilian teams out of 3 teams, then you would be correct but since it will be 2 brazilian and 14 NA, could technically call them NA. Not to mention that one or both of them actually live and play in NA, dont they?
2015-10-13 13:11
yeah but why not just call them all american teams?
2015-10-13 13:25
That would be better indeed but hltv editors are so used to saying EU/NA since both are 2 capital letters that I doubt they will bother changing shit.

Can't tell if b8... dammit
2015-10-13 19:15
So you really think that an na team can win this?
2015-10-14 09:48
Probably not, unless Liquid goes real hard and everyone else fucks up really bad... But your post missed the point of mine, which was that China doesn't need more spots, since they'll get demolished pretty much instantly.

piter lol, expected though
2015-10-13 13:22
NiP and C9 changes inc? Why would NiP decline the invite? Contracts expire on new years. NiP re-worked. Why would C9 decline the invite? I have no fucking clue..
2015-10-13 13:22
no c9 finally, trash.
2015-10-13 13:23
How much?

2015-10-13 14:11
reject along with nip... here come the gtr rumours
2015-10-13 14:25
Still, I don't see why you would decline an invitation to such a tournament. Like, you can still accept and play with a different roster when the tournament takes place, than when you were invited.
2015-10-13 18:02
c9 declined things like pgl, depends on conflicts / player preference
2015-10-13 20:05

Let me get this straight...na will send 16 teams, just to play one game (group stage) and go home?
2015-10-13 14:27
Only finals with 5/2/1 teams will be held in Minsk. Groupstages and so will be played online.

"From January 13-17, the Minsk Arena will play host to the season finals, where five teams from Europe, two from North America and one from China will battle it out for the StarSeries crown and the first prize of $90,000." There are only 2 spots for NA.

No NiP. No C9. Coincidence that the finals are in 2016, after the NiP contracts are up? Perhaps they already know there is no point in doing this league because they both will have new rosters.
