Assembly Winter invites revealed

Assembly has announced the names of the four teams who have been invited to play at the upcoming Winter event.

The Helsinki Exhibition and Convention Centre will stage from February 5-6 the 2016 edition of the renowned Assembly LAN, which will feature an international CS:GO tournament with €15,000 in prize money.

Four of the eight tournament spots will be filled through invites, which have been issued to Aleksi "allu" Jalli's ENCE, Vexed Gaming, and LDLC.White.

They're in the qualifier tho.
2016-01-12 16:20
Sure. But they made "shitstorm" in Twitter 'cause they didnt get invite...
2016-01-12 16:42
They probably won't qualify, why should they be mad?
2016-01-12 16:47
Because they need to qualify. Of course you want invite, and i think RCTIC thought that they got more rewards than CSGO.One or LDLC White. Thats why they got "mad" but I think also that they qualify easily.
2016-01-12 18:04
London Conspiracy, CG, Team YP, LDLC Blue, Reason,, unu.AIN, myRevenge e.V., SpaceSoldiers, LionsEK, ExpertGaming etc. meh I think they'll have a hard time qualifying.
2016-01-12 18:13
Yep, not going to be easy but I trust that they can do it. =)

Twista so mad that they didn't get invited. This is going to be pretty bad tournament without better teams but at least now Ence has a chance to win without being that long together.
2016-01-12 16:00
so you're saying rctic is better than those teams invited? lolz
2016-01-12 16:04
no, he said it's bad tournament cause no good teams and Twista is mad
2016-01-12 16:12
There is no big teams cuz ''only'' 15k prize pool.
2016-01-12 16:14
Well LondonC, CG, Reason, Team YP, LDLC etc. in the qualifier so it's questionable if they will even be close to qualify.
2016-01-12 16:27
Other PekkaMarkkula 
Not even questionable i'd say. Questionable however is how useful this tournament with tier 3 foreign teams + finnish team is for finnish scene
2016-01-12 17:03
I think it's a great chance for others as decent opponents are hard to find.

the only reason why ENCE even is there is because of Allu's name..

like it being a finnish lan didnt matter? eesti logic ftw
2016-01-12 17:13
finnish being in a finnish LAN has nothing to do with logic.
2016-01-12 18:31
Other PekkaMarkkula 
But your logic says that ence's there only because of allu?
2016-01-12 20:39
wtf u talking? :D they are there because its they are the only known team in finland. stop being stubid, they would be there without allu anyway.

2016-01-12 18:42
Why team like CSGO.One is invited?
2016-01-12 22:31
mad cuz no rctic?
2016-01-13 01:34
Nope, not really. Just can't understand what is the point to invite team that has played couple online games, they should not even be considered to be invited, i actually have no idea which teams were applying for invite, but i find it hard to believe that there was not a single team that would be more "qualified" to be invited. This is really good example of the event organizing skills here in Finland.
2016-01-13 01:39
I mostly agree. But im pretty sure csgoone qualfied for the minor too. So i guess they have some skill.
2016-01-13 02:44
Yup, it is not about the skill, the problem is that there were teams applying that have done a lot more and longer work to become a team that is even considered as a team not a mix. :D
2016-01-13 23:57
tbh.. ence shouldnt get the invite.. They should have put rctic in there instead. But im sure has been a team for more than 2 months. Idk, i dont see them as a mix. I know them from when they beat VP with s1mple, thats quite a long time ago
