Renegades, AVANGAR invited to StarSeries i-League Season 8

The first two invites for the upcoming StarSeries event have been announced: Renegades and AVANGAR.

AVANGAR joins the team list after their most successful period yet, which includes a second-place finish at the StarLadder Major and a win at BLAST Pro Series Moscow, seeing them placed fourth in the world rankings. The young Kazakh squad is currently also confirmed DreamHack Open Rotterdam on October 18-20, which ends a single day before the $500,000 tournament in Turkey starts.

The first invites have been rolled out

On the other hand, Renegades have not been very active since the Major, where they finished 3-4th, with their next outing set to be at the group stages of ESL Pro League. Renegades are currently ranked 9th and will be looking to solidify their placement in Belek.

The team list for StarSeries i-League Season 8 is currently as follows:

Belek is only for tourism bro, I don't think noone even lives there other than using there as a summer house. If they don't get paid audience, they will have none.

bigger price pool doesnt mean better teams. Just look at the teams invited for closed qualifier, proof enough that quite a few top teams skipped this tournament.

And let me tell you, is even dumber than that. CBCS is not even the top league in Brazil. Is a franchised league that has only the teams that were fighting to be amongst the best. Brasileirão has a much higher level.

But I'm mad because it's not Brazil's top flight. Detona is the top brazilian league, the brasileirão. This is a just a low br tier event. The team competing here will get dismantled.
