March 8th, 2018 19:31

fnatic and EnVyUs have been confirmed as the last pair of invitees for DreamHack Masters Marseille.

The news means that all of the invited teams have been revealed by the organisers, with fnatic and Envy joining the likes of FaZe, SK, and Cloud9 in the team list.

At the latest Masters event held in Malmö, fnatic did not get through the group stage, but they will go to Marseille with the IEM Katowice 2018 title under their belt after beating FaZe in a thrilling five-map series.

The IEM Katowice champions will be in Marseille

Just like fnatic, Envy will compete in Marseille after attending the WESG 2017 World Finals in March. With EnVyUs' new additions, Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss and Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey, this will be the second LAN event of the new roster, whose core also failed to get through the group stage in Malmö last year.

There are only three teams yet to be determined, with the list for DreamHack Masters Marseille currently looking as follows:

Denmark Astralis Brazil SK
Europe mousesports France G2
Europe FaZe United States Cloud9
Ukraine Natus Vincere North America Liquid
Kazakhstan Gambit
Sweden NiP
Sweden fnatic
France Envy
China TYLOO Europe Europe qual.
Europe Europe qual. North America North America qual.

The $250,000 tournament will run on April 18-22 with $250,000 up for grabs, with the playoffs stage of the tournament held at Le Dôme. Tickets to the event can be purchased by heading over to Weezevent's website here.

Because they are the 2nd best french team and it is a french event. Given they are top 30 it wouldn't make sense for them to not ensure theres at least two french teams for a french event. I'm just really glad VP didn't get an invite. Hopefully the more invites the lose the bigger the fire under their ass gets lit.
2018-03-08 19:36
yea I guess that they wanted to get some french team in as well but nV is not 2015 nV anymore

Oh I absolutely agree with you but it seems moreso to increase the chances a french team make the playoffs for the arena. For all we know though they could be bootcamping and training like crazy and be a top 15 team again.
2018-03-08 19:42
I agree with you my friend. But LDLC is too weak right now to be a real contender at this tournament and the rest is subtop (ARES, aAa...). If Misfits's roster wasn't dead then they would deserve it over nV, for sure.
2018-03-08 19:45
I mean where is the point in even inviting 2 French teams, if there aren't that many French top teams at the moment. I mean we never get to see German teams at ESL One Cologne as well and I'm totally fine with that.
2018-03-08 20:23
Well, nV is still in top30. Remember that ESL Cologne 2017 was before the major, where BiG made it to the playoffs. Before that they surely had good potential. So BIG was at a #20 spot in early June 2017. You've still made a fair point. I still think though ESL Cologne, as being one of the 3 greatest tournaments of the year including the two majors, has to invite the best teams at the tournaments. It has a special appeal to the players. ESL Cologne is legendary. DH Marseille is new, it has first to grab the interest of the local spectators. Plus G2 looks really bad right now, even more with SmithZz. That would be really sad to see them get out in groups, and the venue would have a weird feeling. Let's give the chance to at least 2 french teams. Kio + Scream + RpK has some potential, even if it's been disappointing last year. I'd love to see them be in the playoffs, because this event could be nuts, considering french crowd can really be on fire when there's a french team (see LCS Finals 2017 in Paris on LoL, the crowd was on fire, with Misfits and Fnatic). But I'm still pretty sure that would be nice to invite BIG, or any other german team to ESL Cologne. But it only starts to become interesting if they make it to the playoffs. EDIT: Don't forget that invites for ESL Cologne are sent 2 to 3 months before the actual tournament, so the team rankings can still change.
2018-03-08 20:58
Well I agree with everything you're saying here. Fair points.
2018-03-08 21:04
The event is held in France, it's not French. Bias like that should be met with harsh criticism.
2018-03-08 20:08

And the venue as well as the organization should invite the top local teams to attend to encourage attendance. I don't think it warrants harsh criticism. Its the same reason why the host country for the world cup gets a spot.
2018-03-08 20:40
It absolutely does. These are peoples careers, and means to their livelihood, and some teams worked very hard to be deserving of an invite unlike nV. If G2 wasn't already in attendance I would agree with you.

The organizers also have a duty to sell as many tickets as possible because it is their livelihood as well. This business isn't all about the players although many of us wish it were. It also matters to the fans who are spending their money to purchase a ticket. Many in France would probably love the opportunity to watch French teams play. We can't fault the organizers for trying to put asses in seats, thats their job.

2018-03-09 02:57
If you're insinuating that envyus will reap them more profit than a healthy competition, I couldn't disagree more with you again. Theyre going to sell the same amount of venue tickets whether envyus will be there or not (good chance they won't even qualify to the event). A team like gambit for example will bring a ton of CIS viewership, while envyus games barely break 2k viewers unless they're against a good team. What you're saying is correct in theory, But that's not how it will play out in practice. The best way to maximize profits it's to have a competitive tournament, it's as simple as that. You should be able to see this invite exactly for what it is, which is home bias. It serves no benefit to the tournament itself. Edit: by qualify I mean make it to the stage.

This is already by far the most competitive tournament of the year outside of the Major. Just like in Malmo they will have the two swiss teams they will have French teams at a French event. What your seemingly arguing is that teams like VP should be invited because of the viewership they bring. There is nothing wrong with home bias at a home tournament when the given team getting the spot is still a competitive top 30 team. Its not like they are grabbing aAa or something and adding them to the event. What evidence do you have to suggest that it wont play out in practice? I ask because there are numerous times were events sell more tickets when a home team qualifies for the stage. Whether you think EnvyUs is going to qualify or not doesn't matter, the fact that they have a second french team with an opportunity to qualify for the stage at a French event is much more important to the organizers and those paying for the event to make back the money they are spending to host it. Again you can come up with whatever competitive reasonings you want but the fact that this is still a business will always be there. These events will always try to get as many home teams there as they can. Just like how Dreamhack Valencia had a spot help for an Iberan qualifier with only Spanish or Portuguese orgs/teams invited. It is in the best interests for the organizers and the fans of that region to have a home team to support in an event. What I'm getting the sense of however is a team you are a fan of that is "better" than EnvyUs didn't get an invite. Things like this are going to happen at every single event and thats ok. Now though I cant wait to see how the new EnvyUs does and would love nothing more than for them to make the stage.
2018-03-09 16:13
The team I am fan of has already been invited, pretty presumptuous of you. Not to mention the fact that tickets are sold in advance, regardless of what team qualifies. They aren't filling a football stadium here, their number 1 revenue stream is from viewership numbers on whichever platform they choose. That's why it won't play out in practice. No need to laud poor business decisions simply for the sake of calling them business decisions.
