Arbalet Cup Dallas team list revealed

Twenty-six teams have been confirmed to be participating at Arbalet Cup Dallas, which is due to take place this weekend.

Not much info has been revealed since Arbalet Cup Dallas got announced last month, the organizers now announce a twenty-six team list. At the moment, only five non-American teams will travel to Dallas to compete, while twenty-one of the twenty-six are hailing from the United States.

Arbalet Cup Dallas participants

Sweden SK Gaming Denmark mTw Germany mousesports Sweden H2k Gaming
Norway Lions United States compLexity United States Evil Geniuses United States Loaded
United States Finesse Canada Area51 United States Underestimated United States yadlla
United States Team to Beat United States Exult United States TAU United States Backfire
United States Vicious Gaming United States CyberRevolution
United States Team 34 United States ne plus ultra
United States Animus United States weTake United States Max United States Admission
United States Akta United States The Dons    

Four teams from Europe are still in the process of resolving their trip or visa in order to confirm their participation in Dallas. Those teams are:

Ukraine Na´Vi Ukraine PinG

The organizers stress that they had invited all top teams, but teams simply were not able to attend. A PR trip put a stop to fnatic attending, WeMade FOX had WCG qualifier, Frag eXecutors could not come due to Jakub "kuben" Gurczyński losing his passport in France, while several other teams simply were not able to attend.

Arbalet Cup Dallas will take place 16-18 July at the Hella Shrine Center, featuring a massive prize pool of $80,000, seeing the first-placed team walk away with a total of $25,000. will be on site in Dallas to bring you all of the action from Arbalet Cup Dallas and stay tuned for further announcements regarding the participating teams.

Nice teams, just fnatic and WeMade FOX missing. It's a shame they cannot make it but I'm hoping for a great event nevertheless.

Their not going on this event. First of all kuben has no passport and he'll have to wait for it for few more weeks. It will be hard for him to get it before e-stars.

2010-07-12 13:23
too bad that such many teams had to decline the invite, but in the long run i think it have the potential to match up to what CPL Winter/Summer used to be like. im also really glad that finally some lesser known american teams now get the chance to play against top european teams, that's something that they really need to get the north american scene growing again. big ups!
2010-07-12 13:26

due to Jakub "kuben" Gurczy&#324;ski "lost" his passport he lost it alright :), weel you should say it was "borrowed" by a french thief. LoL when I saw "Team 34" in the list first I read Team 3D, i was like omg omg omg omg omg, but than....

Bad luck for Fx. I wanted to see them play against top teams again, at ESWC they didn't play bad except the day when they played really bad vs SK and mTw. My guess they are simply slacking if they don't play with european teams... because their are no tough opponents for them in poland right now. Enough off topic :P I think Na`Vi if they get visas ;P if not I hope SK !!
