IEM San Jose teams list complete

With NiP announced as the seventh official team to attend Intel Extreme Masters San Jose, the eighth attendance spot will go to the winner of the iBUYPOWER CS:GO Invitational.

After our previous article in which Cloud9 and Luminosity were announced as the third and fourth teams to attend the $100,000 Intel Extreme Masters stop in San Jose, California on November 21-22, the final four teams are now officially known.

It was Virtus.pro and Natus Vincere, two teams who today sparred in the Azubu.tv showmatch, who were first announced as the fifth and sixth teams to attend the event.


NiP receive the seventh IEM San Jose spot

ESL have now confirmed that NiP will be the seventh official team to attend the North American event, and they have additionally relegated the final spot to the best placed non-invited team of the iBUYPOWER CS:GO Invitational, another $100,000 tournament in California that will take place the week before on November 14-15.

The official teams list for IEM San Jose is therefore:

Denmark TSM France EnVyUs
United States Cloud9 Brazil Luminosity
Poland Virtus.pro CIS Na`Vi
Sweden NiP Other iBP CS:GO Cup

With Cloud9 and Luminosity attending the iBP Invitational as well, the final spot is a chance for hungry North American teams (as well as for the Australian Renegades squad), such as those whose owners were disappointed with the earlier North American invites.

Those in the California area who wish to spectate the event can find tickets over on Ticketmaster.

Ban for IBP is justified. The problem is more teams deserve bans but only IBP got banned because of mad ex. gf. In not angry ex. gf they would be ok.

1st, 2nd, or 3rd depending on if both LG and C9 make it to the final or if just one of the two or if neither of them do.

yap, but in case they both go to final, which team go through, and why? rounds, placement,...? if one of them go to finals it's obvious that the team along them goes to IEM-SJ

G2 beat them back, after they C9 beat them a month prior, and G2 beat C9 at a major, which means more. This still doesn't change the fact that right now C9 are playing more shitty than G2 nt though

They've been holding their own against tier 2 teams, and also was winning games before their lose streak against t1 teams, and now currently tying against the t2 teams they played more recently. C9 had 1 month of being good so don't give me that bullshit about them playing liek shit recently. nt though
2015-10-17 21:56
"been playing like shit since inception" Let's just ignore the 16-0 vs VP, and getting out of the groups in the major. For a team that doesn't speak a native language, and english is ALL their second languages, they played excellently.
2015-10-21 06:59
