April 3rd, 2016 17:33

The MLG Columbus All Star game will kick off in under an hour and we have the official lineups and casting talent listed below.

In addition to the Major grand final, the final day of MLG Columbus 2016 will feature an All Stars match between the Americas and Europe that will feature some of each region's most prominent players.

Fans voted for about a week back in March to determine the players who would receive a chance to play in the All Star game and the talent lineup was finally announced this morning in North America.


s1mple will play for Team North America

The format of the All Star match will be a best-of-one map although it is currently unclear how that will be determined.

The official lineup for both teams is:

Team Americas Team Europe
United States Spencer "Hiko" Martin Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Ukraine Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev Sweden Mikail "Maikelele" Bill
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik France Kenny "kennyS" Schrub
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Canada Mike "shroud" Grzesiek Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač

The game will be officially casted by two of the Major's current analysts and its stage host, all of whom have a long and storied history in Counter-Strike which has previously included casting.

United Kingdom Richard Lewis
United Kingdom Duncan "Thorin" Shields
United Kingdom Paul "Redeye" Chaloner

>North America >s1mple r u srs?
2016-04-03 17:34
he is playing for a NA team.... would you consider mou as a european player (hes not in that match but just for example)
2016-04-03 17:36
kennyS plays in NA org, so what? r u mad too? Ukrainian flag is not NA
2016-04-03 17:37
it is a difference between na team and na organisation and answer my mou question
2016-04-03 17:38
i see no difference, and i give no fucks about NA nonames like 'mow'
2016-04-03 17:39
mou is from Kazakhstan you fucking idiot
2016-04-03 17:40

2016-04-08 18:23
There is a diference between playing for an NA org with full EU lineup and living and playing in NA in full NA line up
2016-04-03 17:42
Month ago, and last year, he was playing in EU. 2 weeks living in NA doesn't make you an american
2016-04-03 17:44
No, but it makes you citizen of America, and who said that he is American?
2016-04-03 17:46
I really doubt Simple is a citizen of America, rofl.

it's not about org or team.. it's about scene.. s1mple plays in NA scene. KennyS in EU scene. just it
2016-04-03 17:43
Okay, it sounds more convincing
2016-04-03 17:45
Fucking awful logic. It's a NA team, which doesn't, by any reason, means they have to be born in any of NA countries.
2016-04-03 20:25
This is "EU all-star team" is a joke. There Isn't even 1 of the top 5 players of 2015. LOL
2016-04-03 18:11
If S1mple can play for NA All-Stars team, why he can`t play for the national USA \ Canada team on the TWC?

Fnatic players are still in USA, but FaZe Clan youtubers such as apex, rain and teeqo told in their videos that people should go to vote FaZe players.

2016-04-03 17:35
Since NaVi and LG are playing the finals, it is pretty obvious why none of their players is in all star match. Would you rather prepare your tactics with your to the match for 500k team or play an exhibition?
2016-04-03 17:37
No navi,lg or fnc players can play so no fucking wondrr rofl
2016-04-03 17:38
ez 4 NA with these lineups Players of teams in the finals weren't allowed to play I'm assuming?
2016-04-03 17:34
Yes but why no fnatic players?
2016-04-03 17:35

2016-04-03 17:34
rain is good but why the fuck maikelele
2016-04-03 17:37
not that good to be in all star match, where is fnatic, snax,f0rest etc
2016-04-03 17:39
yup why no players from navi/astralis/fnc weird..
2016-04-03 17:40
+1 Players like f0rest, shox, snax, device, fnatic ++ deserve it more. But this is based off of votes and if they wanted to play though. I believe fnatic are already back in Sweden.
2016-04-03 17:41

S1mple and Maikelele shouldn't be here in my opinion. S1mple is European and Maikelele should give his place to a star player. Whatever, let's watch this.
2016-04-03 18:01
Match of stars with rain and maikelele, without neo, taz, forest etc. gl, ill cross my fingers for Americana
2016-04-03 18:03
