StarLadder and ImbaTV have announced that they will host an invitational tournament in Shanghai with $150,000 up for grabs.

Running from November 2-5, the SL i-League Invitational Shanghai will see eight top teams from all over the world compete for the grand prize of $75,000.

PGL Major Krakow champions Gambit and Chinese heavyweights TYLOO are the first two teams confirmed for the event, with three more invitees due to be revealed soon. The final three participating teams will be determined by regional qualifiers, held in Europe, China and in the CIS.

The team list for the event currently looks as follows:

Kazakhstan Gambit China TYLOO
Europe Invite #3 North America Invite #4
CIS Invite #5 Europe EU Qualifier

Why Starladder isn't supporting the APAC scene? People are becoming stupid and worship money, North Korea should start the war. North Korea is smart. North Korea goes to heaven.
2017-09-15 18:12
APAC Scene is up to i-League in our cooperation.

Starladder is one of the best event organiser so far. Great design team & management. I'd doubt if it's hard to find government collaborations with all those past stellar achievements. :)
2017-09-15 19:37
Well, we are clearly up to going with APAC. But that's ImbaTV duty :) We already had South Korean team on our event.

That's awesome bro because currently, more new teams are joining the race due to better internet speed & fundings. But it'll be great if ImbaTV can have an English version in order to have more viewers in my shop. Hopefully the Koreans will provide some advice on how to make the show more interesting to watch, as they are the champion in Asia for making great tv series using good camera lightings. :)
