Well if they're looking for viewers, inviting c9 brings a lot more NA attention.
2017-05-19 21:44
For viewers they could also change IMT for NiP. Did NiP decline or anything?

What about NiP? They finished 2nd last year
2017-05-19 21:25
Last year? Nt, this year they can't even qualify for the Minor. Although I think it should have been Astralis/Faze instead of c9
2017-05-19 21:27
They obviously declined
2017-05-19 21:43
They probably dont want to risk making this a tier 1 tournament and lose, giving more points to SK and losing position in the rank.
2017-05-20 01:27
They know they that they dont need to attend every tournament for a chance to win something unlike sk
2017-05-20 02:02
SK just won IEM Sydney against them and you trying to say they need to go to every tournament to win. retarded or trying to bait.
2017-05-20 03:21
Lol you Brazilians won 1 Tier1 tournie this year and start being cocky Face it you probably just won because FaZe focused to much on Astralis and forgot to prepare for SK

I don't see how he's being cocky? He was just stating that SK won a tournament very recently after #83 randomly decided to bash SK.
2017-05-20 07:13
I bashed sk because he bashed astralis and faze
2017-05-20 08:24
Where in this comment does he bash Astralis or FaZe? "They probably dont want to risk making this a tier 1 tournament and lose, giving more points to SK and losing position in the rank."
2017-05-20 16:23
#82 that's where he was cocky

Being supportive of your favorite team and predicting them to win is now considered being cocky. 2017 sure is fun.
2017-05-20 20:00
m8 you serious? I predict FaZe to win the next Major and predict mouse to win a few low key tournies But I don't say Team X doesn't attend Event Y because they are scared of team Z. Don't try to find a Hypocrisy where none is. ^ That is 2k17

Nah that's perfectly fine, he's basically saying he thinks SK are more prepared for this tournament because they've been practicing for it when Astralis have been practicing/saving things for the major and won't want to show too much here, same with Faze. Makes perfect sense to anyone who isn't biased and is instead objective. But as you said you're a fan of FaZe so you got offended.
2017-05-24 01:35
What? No he didn't say that at all. He said they don't attend because they are scared of loosing and falling in the ranks he didn't say anything about practicing for the Major
2017-05-25 08:17

South Africa nimmaJ 
But that's the exact reason Faze and Astralis denied their invites, because they want to focus on the major. And if they did attend this they may not only lose it due to lack of preparation but also lose out on time they could be practicing for the major and risk being less polished for that as well.

2017-05-19 23:48
ofc they can qualify, but will they? lel
2017-05-20 03:50
Obv organiser don't want viewers and money, stupid decision or NiP didn't want to attend
2017-05-20 00:20
Or they just want a real competition Not just waste a spot
2017-05-20 06:47
sk, fnatic, g2, faze, astralis, NA'VI should get the invite, not tier 999 teams like cloud 9

2017-05-20 00:07
It's dreamhack in SWEDEN. How come they invite BOTH SK and IMT but not NiP? Yes NiP is shit but that has nothing to do with CS and organizing tournaments. NiP brings in viewers and money and SK/IMT don't. If I wanted to watch SK I'd go to Skånes Djurpark or Skansen

First of all, you don't know that they didn't invite NiP and had them decline. It's actually not unlikely for that to be true with all the issues they're having, I wouldn't doubt that they either want to not focus on smaller tournies for a while or are planning a disband and don't feel like playing additional tournies on their way out. On top of that I wouldn't put it past the tournament organizers to disregard NiP with their recent results and just go for the overall best possible teams they can get.
2017-05-20 07:08
NiP declined because the dates of DH Open Summer collides with the dates of the Europe minor. Well, bummer now I guess
