ICE Challenge details revealed

The organizers of ICE Challenge have revealed all participating teams and the format of the $250,000 tournament taking place in London on February 1-6.

Current No. 2 team mousesports headline the completed team list alongside one other top-10 team, Natus Vincere, with the remainder of the participants residing all over the top 30 ranking: ENCE, Heroic, Virtus.pro, MAD Lions, GODSENT, and OG.

The tournament will begin with a best-of-three GSL group stage, which will run on the first two days (February 1-2). Only one team will be eliminated from each group, as the remaining six will move on to the playoffs played in front of live audience in the ExCeL venue on February 4-6.

A best-of-five grand final will decide the winner, who will grab the lion's share of the $250,000 prize pool, distributed among the participants in the following way:

1. $125,000
2. $50,000
3-4. $25,000
5-6. $10,000
7-8. $2,500

The full team list of ICE Challenge looks as follows:

The event will be broadcast by Maincast on Twitch.

because then it can be ENCE vs OG?
2020-01-04 16:05
Would definitely be an interesting matchup, they seem very even in terms of firepower, and maybe there will be interesting interactions between aleksib and the others.

He certainly has a point, I hope that the likes of Valde, Nbk and Mantuu can keep up with the firepower of sunny and sergej. Then it'll probably be a close match

Stop mentioning NBK when talking about firepower. He literally couldn't break double digits every game during last major with vitality.
