Lions & mTw complete ICSC 8 list

Lions and mTw are the final two teams for the upcoming season eight of Intel Challenge Super Cup.

Two days ago the organizers of ICSC added eleven names to the participants list for the eighth season. Two spots were yet to be handed out, before we would know the entire list of participants.

The organizers have today announced Swedish team Lions, who went out in the second group-stage at Xperia PLAY, will join ICSC 8. Danish mTw, who recently shared 3rd/4th-place with RG-Esports at Xperia PLAY, claim the last spot in the league.

The participating teams for the eighth ICSC season are:

Ukraine Natus Vincere Ukraine DTS Ukraine Selectah!
Ukraine Double Damage Ukraine TMS Ukraine KerchNET
Russia Virtus.pro Russia Moscow Five Russia Team Prior
Russia USSR Russia tao Belarus Ultimo
Poland MaxFloPlay Poland Universal Soldiers Poland Fear Factory
Poland Frag eXecutors Denmark Cheap Times! Denmark TCM-Gaming
Denmark mTw Sweden RG-Esports Norway Deathwish
Sweden Lions Sweden SK Gaming Sweden fnatic
Latvia escalate Latvia Headache Spain x6tence
Finland munkka Finland rootz Finland Online Kingdom
Germany Alternate Germany ESC Gaming

The teams will be drawn into eight groups of four teams, in which every side will play each other twice. The top two from each group will progress to a second group stage, which will feature four groups of four teams. The top eight teams from this stage, two per group, will advance to the LAN finals, at the Kiev CyberSport Arena.

The group draw is expected to take place this weekend, most likely on Sunday.

Stay tuned to HLTV.org for full coverage of the $10,000 ICSC 8 league, which will kick off on 3 May.

nice!

2011-04-28 16:15

2011-04-28 16:54
maybe, but they still can't fight with best teams imo
2011-04-28 17:04
15-15 Mouz vs FX. ehm, loord & Neo made 2 clutches that made them draw. ;)
2011-04-28 17:14
i mean at bo3, moreover both teams had already advanced to 2nd group stage :) In playoffs mous wouldn't win i think :)
2011-04-28 17:45
Who knows, FX lucked 2 rounds. But doesn't matter, old mouz > Fx
2011-04-28 17:46
PGS > old mouz :)
2011-04-28 18:06
Remember 16:0 during eswc ?;d
2011-04-28 19:22

2011-04-28 20:25

2011-04-28 16:22
sk or fnatic in final? Don't think so.
2011-04-28 16:27
Lower teams get experience, and i think this is good present for them because they don't pay anything.
2011-04-28 16:29
fnatic ??! lol Na`Vi vs SK mTw vs FX
2011-04-28 16:29

x6 !!
2011-04-28 16:16
this is good for the counter-strike 1.6 scene. we needed a new online tournament similar to IEM/EC that would provide the fans with weekly tournaments. the 1st group stage might not be so spectacular but the 2nd group stage will feature the 16 best teams divided into 4 groups. then the list of teams will probably look something like this: NaVi FX mTw SK M5 fnatic Lions RG-Esports TCM Virtus.pro USSR DTS OK x6tence ESC Gaming Alternate/Deathwish
2011-04-28 16:17
virtus.pro !
2011-04-28 16:17
yeah! gl gl gl
2011-04-28 16:20
why so many swedish teams? I know that they are the best CS nation but since ICSC focuses more on Eastern Europe it would be fair to invite a team from Lithuania and one Estonian team, for example reset & aNimus or nOu btw ICSC need to expand the list of participants, it would be the best solution
2011-04-28 16:20
