IEM Sydney revealed

ESL has announced that the Intel Extreme Masters will have a stop in Sydney, Australia this year, with the ~$200,000 tournament set to take place in May.

IEM Sydney will kick off the 12th season of IEM and will be held on May 6-7 at the Qudos Bank Arena, which has the capacity of 18,000.

Along with the general information, two invited teams have been announced—the Brazilians of SK and Renegades, who will be back to Australia to play a premier tournament for the first time since the Crown Invitational in 2015.


jks will be back to playing CS on their home soil in May

According to an article from Fox Sports Australia, ESL is "expected" to send invites to four more international teams to attend the $260,000AUD tournament, while the remaining spots will be filled with local "hopefuls" although it was not specified if "local" meant the inclusion of the entirety of the Asia-Pacific region or just Oceania.  

The following teams have been invited to IEM Sydney:

Brazil SK    Australia Renegades

while more or less true, we want them to care, right? the more that do care the better. and the best way of getting them to care is to host great events in their area. that said. I'm obviously all for more EU events and less NA/Asian, but that's just my biased ego speaking.

Yeah, at least I've seen a lot of my Indian friends awake all night to watch events helf in US :/ And then probably sleep in class or office. xD
2017-03-07 13:25
think again now, the intresst of what nations who mostly view counterstrike is the european and CIS region. Thats where dota and cs is biggest and have most viewers from. This the timezone is pretty awful, the swedish timezones adapt our events are late to let other countries be able to watch it at the same time. for some odd reason other events does not do this, i get that you cannot please all countries and timezones perfect but atleast dreamhack are doing a great job, thinking of other timezones compared to ESL, ESL is pretty horrible at this job.

From EU its what, 20 hours, 24 with a bit of Stranding in Singapore? Same goes for NA. Sorry Aussies, but there is a reason your country was just a big ass prison colony.

Awesome, I'll be going to this one. Kinda disappointing that Renegades was invited, rather them go through a qualifier with other AU teams, especially seeing that some of them have potential for upsets. On top of that, would love to see an asian qualifier (that includes Australian teams), I feel that its to centered around EU and it wouldn't hurt for tournaments like this to at least let one or two teams from other countries play.

Anyone got any info, rumour or 'spider senses' on who the other 4 invites might be? Not going to waste my money and time if SK is the main draw card. Rather play some backyard cricket with the lads and smash a few frothies!

I couldn't give a fuck how the Aussie teams go. I'll support them no matter what. I want the invited teams to be actually half decent and be a draw card. Not some fucking horse shit OpTiC or EnVyUs and make it seem like some tier 1 shit.
