I highly doubt that they all want to play that kinda BO3 group qualis for one place in 500k CIS tournament, when so many leagues and other tournaments are going on. Gonna see some throws. Expecting GODSENT, heroic, dignitas and SS be most interested in qualifying. And what will the invitees be.. NaVi, VP, NiP, Fnatic, G2/nV, SK?

Yeah, it's G2, because nV declined their invitation for the qualifier (not the players, they wanted to play, but the administration of the team).
