G2, mousesports invited to StarSeries i-League Season 8

G2 and mousesports have received direct invites to participate at StarSeries i-League Season 8, the tournament organiser has revealed.

The announcement brings the team count to 13, leaving just two invite slots and the CBCS Season 1 winner to be determined.

Currently ranked seventh in the world, mousesports will look to recreate the glory of the former iteration of the roster that was able to lift the trophy in Season 4, in Kiev, at the expense of hometown heroes Natus Vincere.

woxic will play on home soil in Turkey

G2, meanwhile, will set out to win their first-ever StarSeries title, having come close to glory back in Season 2, where they lost to against a fired-up NiP in the grand final, in 2016. Richard "shox" Papillon, who was recently signed by Vitality, was the last remaining member of that team.

StarSeries i-League Season 8 will take place in Belek, Turkey on October 21-27, with $500,000 in prize money up for grabs. The 16 teams will traverse a double-elimination group stage and playoffs in looks to secure the lion's share of the pot.

With the addition of G2 and mousesports, the participants' list for StarSeries i-League Season 8 looks as follows:

Never understood why people sleep on Renegades so much. Their form pre major wasn't great although when they lost to top tier teams it was always a close affair. Come the major they proved themselves and get top 4 at a major and keep their legend status. But it's probably best that they're always underdogs.
