No not to the small events, the dreamhack masters Las Vegas is probably gonna be quite stacked though. But I'd say that is the purpose of how their circuit is run now. Plenty of small events for lesser teams/some local teams and a few big tourneys for the big ones.

2017-01-03 18:07
feels bad man
2017-01-03 18:20
Maybe because all good teams are going to Major at Atlanta so they only want to focus on it . Be smart :)
2017-01-03 18:55
DH has 2 types of events,normal ones for small teams,masters for bigger teams. Big teams wont attend this even if no major. Also WESG at same time
2017-01-03 20:29
because dh didn't accept the new esl competetive rules regarding coaches talking in game and timeout rules.

2017-01-03 17:56
+1 I thought for sure that c9 + NiP would play here Maybe c9 wanted a longer break or are changing players?
2017-01-03 18:46
They surely want to prepare for DHM Las Vegas and the EPL S5 which will start in February instead of play in a tournament with only tier2-3 teams

Wondering who is managing NORSE.. cant believe they didnt get an invite/tried to get one.
2017-01-03 17:55
maybe they did but since they are so bad/unknown they couldn't get one. I mean, they didn't get to the minor or to any international LAN tournament since they got together.
2017-01-03 18:01
Who knows right? Im rating them to be as good/better than some of the invited teams, but we will see what 2017 brings.
2017-01-03 18:12
Yeah but since they've been so irrelevent for the time they've been together i don't get why they would get in, meanwhile the teams invited either got in because of their org, or because of their fanbase or the storyline they could create : qwerty and BIG lan debut, LDLC possibly getting into ESLPL, fnatic academy being on the rise for few month already. Meanwhile norse is nowhere being interesting for the T3/T2 scene.
2017-01-03 18:16
if LDLC doesn't get to minor i kill myself (not rly but) I really want ex6tenz to succed and play with high tier teams again!

It's not fnatic staff.. it's their academy team and they recently won a 140k tournament in china. hltv.org/news/19515-fnatic-academy-win-c..

No shit.. but they are all young. I think they will be big in the future, we have a lot of young talent overhere. Norse haven't won shit compared to Fnatic AC, only a couple of Norwegian lans.
2017-01-04 12:55
yup agree
2017-01-04 13:08
they dont have any relevant players. zeves sucks, centryz has been off the radar for years now feels like and outside of norway hardly anyone knows any of the others. the other teams there at least have names everyone knows or teams that have some achievements.
