NiP and fnatic invited to StarSeries i-League Season 8
StarSeries i-League Season 8, which is slated to take place in Belek, Turkey, on October 21-27, will have two Swedish sides present, NiP and fnatic, who will fight in the 16-team tournament for their share of the $500,000 prize pool.
fnatic have been invited to the upcoming StarSeries i-League Season 8 after becoming DreamHack Masters Malmö champions, winning the grand final against Vitality in their first tournament since revamping the roster with Maikil "Golden" Selim and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist.

With the two additions, the current StarSeries i-League Season 8 team list is the following:
