The Ukranian organizers have revealed that SK will fill the last remaining spot at StarSeries i-League Season 5.

SK add yet another event to a busy summer schedule with the team already attending ESL Pro League Finals, Adrenaline Cyber League and ESL One Belo Horizonte in May and June.

The Kiev event, which has a $300,000 prize pool, has been ridden with declines from other invited team such as G2, FaZe and fnatic, with North, Virtus.pro and Gambit replacing them.

coldzera and his men are going to Kiev later this month

The Brazilian-American side is currently in Dallas for the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, their first LAN event with coldzera as their in-game leader. They are looking to better themselves after a disappointing year so far, reaching the quarterfinals at IEM Katowice and going out in the group stages of both IEM Sydney and DreamHack Masters Marseille.

With SK's invite, the full team list for Starseries i-League Season 5 is as follows:

North America Liquid Europe mousesports
United States NRG Europe HellRaisers
Kazakhstan AVANGAR  Sweden GODSENT
Ukraine Natus Vincere
Poland AGO
Sweden NiP Australia Renegades
China VG.Flash China TYLOO
Denmark North Poland Virtus.pro
Kazakhstan Gambit Brazil SK

None of them should currently be top3. It should be astralis, faze and fnatic. Sure navi has simple, and they if he carries, they can win games. Mouz has just looked off the last two events.

2018-05-16 13:07
All of them declined the invitation . do you see how many events are in june - may ? their busy its schedule and they need to focus on most important ones

Astralis as well? Didn’t read that... And still it’s sad for the event and the fans there
2018-05-16 13:20
Yeah they aren’t obligated to come to every event. Teams like Fnatic are probably preparing for their next LAN, G2 are probably sorting out problems with thier roster. Faze may be taking a break after epl finals. May-june are extremely packed full of good CS even not top tier CS like Dreamhack open tours, Adrenaline cyber league and star series obviously. There are also qualifiers for cologne and the faceit major happenening soon
2018-05-16 15:55
G2 top5???? They are shit rn

2018-05-16 13:30
