ESL reveals final invites for Cologne tournaments

A total of $500,000 will be on the line in this tournament series, which will be held online because of the global health situation.

ESL has announced the final team list for the ESL One Cologne tournaments that will be held online in four regions after the German event was scrapped because of the coronavirus pandemic. The biggest surprise comes in the form of an European invite handed to MIBR, who HLTV.org knows will be bootcamping in the Old Continent in August.

The online tournament will take place between August 18 and 30, with $500,000 on offer across four regions — Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania. The decision to change the prestigious tournament to an online setting was made last week following an "extensive research and understanding of global travel regulations and individual national guidelines due to ongoing COVID-19 measures."

MIBR will compete in the European division

MIBR, who ended the tournament season with a 7th-8th place finish in cs_summit 6, join a stacked team list that includes seven of the current top 10 sides in the world. The Brazilians' move to Europe freed up a North American spot for Chaos — a curious turn of events, given the tumultuous relationship between the two teams in recent weeks and the cheating accusations towards Nathan "⁠leaf⁠" Orf.

On the tournament's official website, ESL explained that MIBR "had made arrangements" to be able to compete in ESL One Cologne's Play-In stage, the offline qualifier that was scheduled to take place just before the German event. These arrangements included Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga and Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe travelling back to Brazil during the player break. With the United States having imposed travel restrictions on foreign nationals who have been to Brazil in the last 14 days, the two players are unable to reunite with the rest of the team in Los Angeles.

"With the adjustment to an online format and understanding that travelling back into the US is extremely difficult during these times, we've worked closely with MIBR to grant their request to continue with their original planning and have assigned them to the European Division as one of the originally invited top 24 teams," ESL said.

Below you can find the complete team list for the four tournaments:

Europe ($325,000 prize pool):

North America ($135,000 prize pool):

Asia ($20,000 prize pool):

Oceania ($20,000 prize pool):

2020-07-23 17:16
Cuz they have bootcamp here
2020-07-23 17:23
They need someone to take last place, if a good team gets last place it will have a negative impact on the confidence, which will not be good so they invite mibr to take last spot.

LMFAO

2020-07-23 21:33

2020-07-23 21:34
Dude big plays good
2020-07-23 23:25
imagine thinking online BIG will go last place lmao feel free to sub quote me if they finish last
2020-07-24 01:08
BIG is the best team in the world right now kiddo.
2020-07-24 09:05
name does not check out
2020-07-24 10:53
Some teams that have reached Rank 1 have performed poorly right after they peaked for a few weeks. Fnatic and NaVi are just a couple of teams that can be named. Not to mention, BIG has lost to low Tier 1 and a handful of Tier 2 teams in the past year. Now, BIG is not guaranteed to finish last - I only mentioned them as a potential team for finishing last. I'm free to think what I want and I have provided my reasoning.
2020-07-24 17:06
no one will beat big dont worry :)
2020-07-25 14:19
hahahaha
2020-07-24 09:41
Big? Dude, you forgot that Cologne will be online
2020-07-24 10:52
Big is going to finish last? What have you been watching for the last few months? Hahaha feel free to quote me on this if I’m not wrong 🤙
2020-07-24 14:04
See my response in #360. I'm not saying BIG are guaranteed to finish last, I'm just saying that they may potentially finish last. I've provided my reasoning for why I said that. I'm not a fan of BIG, but I don't hate them either. I've always had relatively high expectations for them, but they've been a let down more often than not.
2020-07-24 17:08
I understand dude but in saying that literally every team going has a chance to finish last. Personally I reckon mibr will come in last spot
2020-07-25 05:28
I guess you could say that. I tried to be as specific as I could, but we'll see. I'm not hoping BIG will get last, but I don't have high hopes for them. If MIBR do get last place, I would be speechless. Have they ever finished last place at a big event?

2020-07-23 17:20
Sprout #33 Movistar Riders #31, but its true, sprout won against no namers and hltv brings them a lot of points
2020-07-23 17:22
movistar got relegated from mdl, pretty much speaks for itself doesnt it? they had one good international tournament and theyre overrated af and anyone can see that
2020-07-23 17:25
They played a rlly bad mdl but only this season, last 3 they manage to finish 3-4. Maybe they just focused on other tournaments or bad form

Mibr should have got the NA spot though in any case and Godsent/Ence were never supposed to qualify to the original event from EU team quota.

mibr even too bad for Brazil now AHAHAHAHA
2020-07-23 17:18
this is huge for mibr, i dont expect them to do good in cologne though. However, im hopeful that theyre gonna have a very good bootcamp and gain some good form! I hope to see them play in home sweet home when that returns, seeing as theyre probably gonna have to stay in eu for a while.

MIBR EUROPE?
2020-07-23 17:21
they can travel with the corona situation to EU? ok
2020-07-23 17:21
Yeah like wasn’t the whole point of having it online that the NA/BR teams couldn’t go to EU?
2020-07-23 17:22
i mean if MIBR can travel, why Furia cant? for instance omegalul
2020-07-23 17:23
How tf did Brazilians get allowed into Europe at this time
2020-07-23 17:22
Certain countries have eased travel restrictions. Some have no restrictions at all in place.
2020-07-23 17:24
Ok
2020-07-23 17:25

2020-07-23 17:22
So NA is basically a 3 team tournament with Liquid, Furia and EG guranteed to play against eachother at least 10 times? Zzzzzzzzzz

People talking about MIBR going last place or something like this. Don’t you think we have the same thoughts? Lol This is a bootcamp because they need to improve and it’s not gonna work playing against the same 5 teams every week. At least they will have the opportunity to practice against a bunch of new teams. Stop being haters for a second

2020-07-23 19:44
Yeah I guess but it is just unfortunate since there are so many better teams that they could have invited.
2020-07-23 19:49
Yeah, but unfortunately MIBR are far more bigger brand than any of the teams that deserve the spot, so viewership will be higher and thats stonks for ESL

2020-07-23 17:40
The fact MIBR is invited just shows you money trumps everything in this business. God knows MIBR is terrible right now but doesn't matter if they cough up some money. ESL is here to make money folks. Let be real. They couldn't care less about who are invited as long as they can get some money out of it. Business 101. Remember when ESL signed Facebook live exclusive streaming platform deal? Here it is again.

MIBR has the biggest fanbase in CS right know so it’s obvious why they got invited lol Even tough they’re in a bad phase and every European and American hates them, they still brings up money to the table. For those who likes American Football, They’re like the Dallas Cowboys of CS, huge fanbase. hated by everyone except their fans, don’t win shit but still got lots os primetime games every year

This should fit nice for MIBR, actually. NA is stuck with the same teams both for training and competing against. There's no room for improvement, specially if you're trying to get some consistency with a new teammate. If this goes wrong, you all will have a lot of fun.

MIBR literally can't win NA tournaments. Why would they even bother competing in Europe? I mean if you have to pick one try and get Liquid or EG over there. And if it's gotta be Brazilian Furia. Just does not compute past their giant toxic fanbase.

thats it during a pandemic, bring a CSGO team half way across the world from a COVID hotspot.... seems braindead to me
2020-07-24 14:20
and depends on which country they go to. As a tourist even as a worker from such countries in Germany you have to do COVID test and probably (always depends) 14 days quarantine. But the chances are high that at least 1 MIBR player gets infected. They are in the USA and in bra71l the most shit countries about fight vs the virus + a shit healthcare system.
2020-07-24 16:32
Brazil don't have a shit healthcare system, get your facts together. We didn't have dead bodies moved by trucks or doctors having to choose between patients. Although our government is the worst, our healthcare system is great. Actually, there aren't as many cases per people in Brazil as there is in some european countries, so they don't have a bigger chance of getting infected. That's why they still can fly to europe
2020-07-24 19:32
Aha bye you take the propaganda from your president. Everyone can fly to Europe this is no honor. But it depends when you are here if a test is enough or you need quarantine
2020-07-24 20:15
dont look at stats my friend. Germany has really low deaths for covid thats because they dont record it as a covid death unless its the main cause. Where the UK for example records all deaths from anyone who has been infected by covid, thus the high numbers there. By stats america have one of the lowest deaths per million population in the world, but obviously have the most amount of deaths. Stats are subjective and can be construde to look how you want them too.

why so much hate with MIBR? I see that the world's toxics are not in Brazil but in other countries, sad reality. :( MIBR is only in the EU, because they are going to do a Bootcamp over there, otherwise they would be in NA anyway, I believe that ESL did that because their place in NA was already guaranteed, because they don’t put it in the EU, and will they be there in EU? ...

2020-07-24 16:07
Sprout got it cuz ESL Wanted that 1 German Team has the chance to be there. So the winner of ESLM got an invite. But BIG won the DH so they get also invited after they lost ESLm to Sprout. In the end, it is earned by the rules. But MIBR isn't earned by the rules cuz the rule said invites by ranking.

That's some epic BS right there. Stick to your own god damn region until this thing is over. What about Renegades then? Godsent or another EU team should have gotten that invite. Maybe it's due to the number of viewers, since MIBR is a bigger name than Godsent and will bring a lot of BR viewers. Who knows, but either way it's messed up.
