Final invites to SL i-League Shanghai revealed
With the addition of Heroic, HellRaisers, and Renegades, the team list for SL i-League Invitational Shanghai has been completed.
Three slots were left after the inclusion of HAVU and Virtus.pro, the first as the runner-up in the qualifier and the latter as an invite, were brought on as Space Soldiers and Gambit had to withdraw from the event.
The teams filling those three remaining spots are: Renegades—who will land in China on the coattails of the Asia Minor—, Heroic, and HellRaisers. The latter, however, will be playing with Patrik "Zero" Žúdel instead of Özgür "woxic" Eker as the Turkish player was unable to secure a visa to travel with his teammates.
In other HellRaisers news, Shanghai will be the stage in which we see Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar play on LAN for the first time with his new team. As for Heroic, they will affront the tournament without Henrik "FeTiSh" Christensen standing behind them as him and the RFRSH owned team parted ways earlier this month.
The tournament, set to start on November 2 and running through November 5, with a prize pool of $150,000, will have the following teams in attendance:
