Evil Geniuses, Vitality join StarSeries i-League Season 8 list

Evil Geniuses and Vitality have accepted invitations to compete at the upcoming StarSeries event in Turkey, StarLadder has revealed.

The announcement brings the team count for the tournament to 11, with only four invites now left to reveal. The final spot will be filled by the winner of the CBCS Season 1 final, which will be contested between Imperial and Evidence.

World No.3 Evil Geniuses are the highest-ranked team so far confirmed for the event. The North American giants, who won their first-ever Big Event last month at ESL One New York, have never failed to reach the semi-finals of a StarSeries event and even made the back in Season 5, losing out to Natus Vincere in the title decider.

EG confirmed at the Turkish event

Vitality had in Season 7 their first StarSeries event, where they were eliminated in the quarter-finals by NRG. The French side, who are currently ranked sixth in the world, will be eager to get their hands on a trophy after finishing second to fnatic at last week's DreamHack Masters Malmö.

StarSeries i-League Season 8 will take place from October 21-27 in Belek, Turkey, with $500,000 on the line. StarLadder will introduce a new format for the tournament, which will feature a double-elimination format in the group stage and in the playoffs.

I dont know how i feel about EG. They absolutely decimated Australis at New York but then lost badly to greyhound. Somehow beating the highest ranked team and then losing to a mid-tier. I guess i just need to keep watching them until they pan out at some skill level.
