mousesports to ESL One Cologne

mousesports are the latest team confirmed for ESL One Cologne, the event's organisers have announced.

mousesports, who made their offline debut at DreamHack Tours last weekend, taking third-fourth, have become the 11th team invited to the prestigious $250,000 competition.

Later this month, the European mixture will be in attendance at the ESL Pro League Season 5 finals, in Dallas, after finishing in third place in the European division, with a 16-10 record.

chrisJ & co. will compete in Cologne

The announcement means that there is now just one invite left to be determined. The final four spots will be filled through qualifiers held in three regions, two of which are already known: Europe and North America. Details about the third regional qualifier will be unveiled soon.

ESL One Cologne will take place in early July, with the playoffs running from 7-9 at LANXESS Arena. Below you can find the updated team list for the event:

Brazil SK Sweden fnatic CIS Natus Vincere Poland Virtus.pro
Europe FaZe Sweden NiP France G2 Denmark North
United States Cloud9 Brazil Immortals Europe mousesports Other Invite
Europe EU qual.  Europe EU qual.  North America NA qual. Other TBA

I don't know yet, if the ticket for train and bus is included I will.
2017-05-12 17:04
it's included
2017-05-12 17:52
then it is a viable option because if I had to pay for VRS ticket as well - not really worth to because it would have been like 13€ every day

Btw he refers to the clip's flag so its because cologne is in germany
2017-05-12 16:41
Ok I accept your reasoning.
2017-05-12 16:41
thats not how it works.. either its the location of the event or its team flag which means EU flag in this case. Not the org. flag..

last inv better be gambit
2017-05-12 16:22
they declined initially but saw all these teams going so might attend anyway
2017-05-12 16:39
forgot its esl and they never make sense I mean their league playoffs are 6-6 split they'll invite liquid last lmao and gambit wont qualify cuz gambit online lul
2017-05-12 18:28
the amount of shit theyd get for inviting liquid/optic over gambit would be absolutely insane. in fact, its already tragic enough that nip and c9 got invited over them. mouz i can kinda understand but even that on paper makes no sense.
2017-05-12 18:35
nip makes sense- Wesa. but I mean they invited optic+C9 over gambit for IEM katowice
2017-05-12 18:49
the main problem is it isnt justifiable looking at their results. they are mostly going after who they think will attract the most viewers or fans at the event. thats why nip is there and thats why they probably wanna have 2-3 NA teams. but thats the thing maybe: theres another NA qualifier, so theyll likely get optic or liquid anyway, which opens up the last invite spot for gambit.
