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.

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.

who's so stupid to overrating ence at the moment? they have played badly even before sunny came to replace aleksib. how/who can/will overrate the team at this point? (let's drop out the delusional, overly hopeful and bandwagon fans and leave fans who have been watching cs longer than the iltalehti or iltasanomat (Finnish tabloid) published the story of Ences victory in StarSeries i-League Season 6 and not ence fans who have not always thought that ence is overrated.) after that who really thinks ence is overrated? at least i think and hope no one is, and what i have hear and read right now most think ence is tier 2 team. barely in the top 20 and if ence doesn't win all the matches except versus mouz and maybe navi in a ice challenge then maybe not even that. and on aleksib no one can yet say anything with certainty about him or og, give him and the team 4-6 months and then come back to this debate on whether he and og is overrated or not again. and let ence have 2-3 months to improve then their game level should be at least close to what it will be in the future and we should also have seen what it might be at its peak. and if the ences level is not enough you have to start wondering if a new roster change would be in place. sorry for long answer, I jumped on the bus and there was nothing better to do than browse hltv and after not writing in english for a long time, it got little bit out of hands XD
