ViCi replace Rogue at StarSeries i-League Season 7
Spencer "Hiko" Martin had guaranteed on social media that the team would still attend the event despite the fact that Hunter "SicK" Mims and Daniel "vice" Kim had already committed to compLexity and Cloud9, respectively. HLTV.org knows that StarLadder was informed of this new development earlier on Tuesday, after having already announced the match-ups for the first Swiss round.
ViCi's most recent LAN appearance came at the IEM Katowice Major, where they were eliminated in the New Challengers Stage with a 2-3 record. The Chinese team will attend the StarSeries event on the back of a morale-boosting victory against TYLOO in the grand final of the Chinese qualifier for IEM Sydney.
StarSeries i-League Season 7 is set to kick off on March 30, featuring 16 contestants duking it out for $500,000 in prize money. The top eight sides of the Swiss stage will progress to the single-elimination playoffs, which will culminate in a best-of-five grand final.
Below you can find the updated match-ups the first round:
