SK Gaming have been invited to compete at Adrenaline Cyber League 2018, the event's organisers have confirmed to HLTV.org.

The Brazilian team will replace Natus Vincere, who decided against attending the event for reasons that remain unclear after being announced as one of the three invited teams last month.

SK will join Virtus.pro, Gambit and the winner of a closed qualifier at the main event, which will take place on May 23-24 at the Adrenaline Stadium, in Moscow, with $100,000 at stake.

SK will attend the Adrenaline Cyber League event

This will be the third event of the month for SK, who will be in action at the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, in Dallas, from May 15-20. Last week, the Brazilians crashed out of IEM Sydney in the group stage following defeats to TYLOO and Grayhound, prompting an in-game leadership change from Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo to Marcelo "coldzera" David.

The team list for the Russian event is the following:

Poland Virtus.pro Kazakhstan Gambit
Brazil SK Europe Qualifier winner

AVANGAR, Kinguin and Quantum Bellator Fire headline the team list for the closed qualifier, featuring five invitees and three teams determined by open qualifiers.

Space Soldiers were also good. They almost took the victory from Fnatic.
2018-05-07 13:15
Although them almost taking the victory was true they never faced any real tough opponents until that Moment. And even fnatic could be considered not that good at the time since they finished last at the last tournament they played in.

Exactly, why risk the humiliation, and anger of the fans. I don't get it. And even if they win, they can take nothing from the event except some money. The experience won't help them, because the other teams are so bad that they cant use it to compare against any future tournaments.

They need to play a lot of matches to test and improve fast. Now they have cold as IGL, so it´s important to them to practice a lot in tournaments, where things really matters. Looking at calendar, this tournaments is in MOSCOW and ends 4 days before Starseries in UKRAINE. So they are thinking in distance of the cities to practice more. This tournament will be a "practice" for Starladder.

They need to improve fast, dude. Cold is IGL now. They have to put ideas on games, testing it. This tournament in Moscow ends 4 days before SL in Ukraine, so they will use this like a practice to Starladder.

is this a joke? Before people start comparing this to inviting extra APAC teams to Sydney, ADRENALINE CYBER LEAGUE is already an established, amazing event, which brings people from all over the world to enjoy TOP TIER Counter-Strike. It is arguably the only event, that can bring 10,000+ people without it being a Valve Major. There are already organised groups of Polish, French, etc. fans coming every year. YOU DON'T NEED A BRASILIAN TEAM AT ALL. Especially not one as average as SK. Just cheer for NTC.

Tier 5 event, wasted spot for SK. Interesting how none of the other big teams like Astralis and FaZe ever get invited to these easy ass tourneys, but SK always gets a spot.

Recent performances would be enough to indicate you’re dilusional and SK is not the same team that dominated last year.
