An almost complete team list for MSI BEAT IT Russia has been announced with top teams such as AGAiN, Natus Vincere, mousesports and Moscow Five among others participating.
Originally called MSI BEAT IT Russia and limited to Ukrainian and Russian participants only, MSI BEAT IT have now chosen to invite nine international teams as well, with one spot yet to be filled out. Taking place at Kiev CyberSport Arena, the event will run on November 19-20.
The organizers have chosen to leave de_forge and de_mirage out of the map pool and the maps will be pre-determined for the group stage, which will consist of four groups, each featuring six teams with top two advancing to the playoffs.
The playoffs will feature the standard best-of-three single elimination bracket, although once again the map selection system is slightly different as teams will pick their maps before removing, which should force all teams to practice their weakest maps as well.
The list of participants is as follows:
|Sniper Squad||25ENERGY LOLPANIC||27||59'57 Rigid|
As previously mentioned there is one invite spot still open for other teams and one of the Russian qualifiers for the event has not yet finished, but the organizers plan on announcing groups on Monday.
