Seven teams have been invited to Assembly Winter's CS:GO tournament with one more coming through a qualifier. Notably absent is Finland's best team Curse.
The 3,000€ tournament was announced two weeks ago and will take place at Assembly Winter 2013 on February 22-24 at Kaapelitehdas in Helsinki, Finland.
While other prominent Finnish teams such as FR34KSHOW and MOV3MBER, who both came close to taking down Curse at LanTrek, are present among Slaava "Twista" Räsänen's Kepardit, Curse are not.
Twista's Kepardit will hope to capitalize on Curse's absence
Also invited is the Norwegian team Temp, led by Jon "DaY" Thomas Rudstrøm, who defeated Kepardit last weekend in The Nordic Games #1 before falling short against Anexis in the final.
