Subaru Invitational teams revealed

Subaru of America has released the list of participants for its CS:GO Invitational.

On May 13-14, eight top North Americans teams will square off online in the Subaru Invitational, with the winner taking home the bulk of a $20,000 prize pool.

The competition will feature a single-elimination, best-of-three bracket, with all matches being streamed live on Twitch.tv/SubaruEsports. To celebrate the tournament, Subaru and esports agency Damage LA will donate $1,000 to Anxiety Gaming, a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing mental health resources for the gaming community.

North America OpTic United States CLG

Isn't the prize pool a tad low? You couldn't get many EU teams for that sum in a single event regardless of the travel costs. You would think SK's time was more valuable. Also $1000 for charity is quite hypocritical from a company with $29 billion USD revenue.

really good lineup of teams for NA, should've been more than 20k
2017-05-03 23:28
So ez for SK
2017-05-03 23:28
they should've had a specialised car for the winning team but that prob too expensive
2017-05-03 23:29
sk is getting ridicolous from 2 majors top1 team to play every tier 3 tournaments ever in 1 year. what a fall.

that's because they love the game not the money like some EU teams.
2017-05-03 23:36
yea , like , the money they win they donate to charity. ...
2017-05-03 23:38
The closest 250k+ event is Pro League Finals at the end of the month, not so many options to be honest. Also is good for them, easy money and staying relevant(Very important for public persons like them), also good for brand and sponsors for the exposure. Win-Win
2017-05-04 00:00
i agree but still , they wouldnt even thought about this 1 year ago. the fall is obvious
2017-05-04 00:10
You are right, but from what I remember, that moment players was complaining from too much events as they couldnt get any rest or training. Things are much more slower now, also they are playing under SK brand now, maybe the org is pressuring them to play more events to get more sponsor exposure. But I get your point too.
2017-05-04 00:18
SK will give this win to Immos :D low money
2017-05-03 23:30
how they get all these teams with this prize pool, are they paid to participate???
2017-05-03 23:31
Ez 4 brazilians
2017-05-03 23:32
and another tier3 lan were SK can farm an ez title. i guess thats what you gotta do when u can´t beat tier1 teams anymore xD

WTF, why is everyone complaining about the prize pool? These teams are used to 8h+ training everyday. Playing this tournment is awesome for all of them, since you can take it as a very competitive training and you also receive a good money for that. (Remember this is an online tournment)
