Immortals invited to IEM Oakland

Immortals are the latest team to have been invited to IEM Oakland, the event's organisers have revealed.

The PGL Major Krakow runners-up are now the eighth team confirmed for the North American event, joining a list that includes SK, G2 and Gambit.

Immortals were in attendance at last year's IEM Oakland event, finishing 5th-6th after losing to eventual champions NiP in the first round of the playoffs.

Immortals return to Oakland after a 5th-6th place in 2016

IEM Oakland will take place from November 16-19 at the Oracle Arena. The event will have $300,000 on offer and count towards the $1 Million Intel Grand Slam challenge.

With Immortals' unveiling, there is only one invite left to announce, with the final three spots being determined by qualifiers held in Europe, North America and Southeast Asia.

Below you can find the current list of participants for the event:

Denmark Astralis  Europe FaZe
France G2 Brazil SK
United States Cloud9 United States Liquid
Kazakhstan Gambit  Brazil Immortals
Other Invite Europe EU Qualifier
North America NA Qualifier Other SEA Qualifier

Even though it sounds racist,lucas and hen1(along with kng,but he has calmed down a little bit)behave like monkeys when they win the round or anything similar.

I didn't say that they are monkeys,I said that they behave like them(with the screaming and jumping).And could you please list some other pro players that celebrate like that?

Taz doesn't jump around and scream?I admit,he is an arrogant guy(though he is probably joking),but I have never seen him celebrate round wins like hen1 and lucas.

Jump around? I never see someone jump ing around during the game... Everyone shouts of provocation, some more restrained others dont.... It's only because they are Brazilians that have this repercussion... Sometimes it is necessary to enter the mind of the adversary and this type of provocation is one of them... Here in Brazil the fans do a lot of that ... it's a kind of pressure... In the 2010 world cup in South Africa for example .... they used quite a lot of vuvuzela and it was very annoying but it is their culture ...

hltv.org/news/20683/esl-announces-1m-int.. Well my bad I didn't know they updated the article. Check at the very end, EPL S5 was in the grand slam prize at the beginning but they removed it.

Brazil vinnyzeraNTC 
No problem :D It can get really confusing at times, since they changed their mind about EPL S5 right before it started; But the bottom line here is that SK and G2 both have 1 win in the Intel Grand Slam and they need to win 3 more DH or ESL events. Next events counting towards it will be ESL NY, IEM Oakland and the EPL S6 I guess..
