GameGune announces 8 more teams

GameGune has announced the next eight teams attending the tournament in Bilbao later this month. With ALTERNATE dropping out, 15 of 24 teams are now known.

We previously announced the first eight teams and since then GameGune expanded their tournament to a total of 24 teams so more teams could participate in this year's event. Since then, ALTERNATE has decided to drop out, meaning nine more spots are available.

The previously announced teams, excluding ALTERNATE, are fnatic, DELTA, x6tence, Anexis, k1ck, zNation and BTK. Notable teams still missing include the likes of SK, ESC, WinFakt and Moscow Five.

Ukraine Natus Vincere (ceh9, Edward, markeloff, starix, Zeus)
Sweden ICSU (dalito, emilio, Jumpy, rape, striker)
North Macedonia ENTiTY (helius, kalaN, N1GHTMARE, NENO, osama)
France JAS (atLaNtis, natsu, NOtA, Ozstrik3r, SIXER)
Czech Republic nEophyte (fredi, gcko, johan, jonz, oskar)
Europe Karont3 (chrisJ, fai, LEGIJA, tabseN, sukitRon)
Russia Virtus.pro (evil, hooch, kucher, LeX, xaoc)
Ukraine KerchNET (B1ad3, bondik, craft1k, krutoi, z1)

The remaining nine teams will be announced in the coming weeks. GameGune 2012 will take place on July 26-29 in Bilbao, Spain and HLTV.org will be on-site to provide you with full coverage of the event.

Nice, NaVI!!!!

they've got for sure enough money maybe they don't attend because they even failed vs quite bad teams in the current EPS season

You dont even know what you're talking about. Even if dima is arrested,why wouldnt the team attend on gamegune? Dima is considered as Founder and investor in M5,he's not CEO. Even without dima's financial support,M5 are able to attend every single tour just because of the acquisition of sponsors.

it wouldn't really be that ironic because it isn't really related to me in any way, it's not like i wrote the article to make the system better for myself, it was to improve it for everyone.
