ESL One NY: All invites revealed

 

The last team invited to ESL One New York has been revealed. This year’s TI winners United States Evil Geniuses will join International Team SecretChina CDEC Gaming and Russian Federation Virtus.pro. Apart from those four, the tournament will feature four more teams that will be determined according to the results of regional qualifiers. Right now, European and Southeastern teams are going through some intense matches which can be witnessed daily on live streams. 

United States Evil Geniuses

Confident plays at all big tournaments were sealed with the victory at The International 2015. However, the roster of the team has undergone some changes since then:  Canada Aui_2000 was replaced with Canada Arteezy, making United States Fear change his role and become a support player. ESL One New York will be the first tournament for their new lineup.

 


CDEC were "dark horses" of The International 2015


China CDEC Gaming

This team has improved a lot over the past six month. They played great at the regional qualifier in China and managed to take the second place there. The Wild-Card matches of The International 2015 were also easy for them to pass, and China CDEC Gaming successfully secured their place in the main stage. “Key-Arena” performance was also great: they managed to win numerous strong rivals (including United States Evil Geniuses), and were stopped only in the tournament grand-final. Anyway, the success of these “dark horses” has been one of the hottest topics of the month, so it is not surprising that they were chosen by ESL

 

Russian Federation Virtus.pro

Right now, “the bears” are considered to be the best European team, as they have managed to play outstandingly and win the match against  International Team Secret. Reshuffle period has passed them by, which proves that this victory made them trust each other even more. Also, Russian Federation Virtus.pro took second place at last year’s ESL One held in Frankfurt, in which they have lost only to  International Team Secret in a grand-final. How could organizers leave such a strong team with no attention? 

 


The last trophy of a previos roster of Team Secret

 

International Team Secret

The team led by Estonia Puppey was the first to receive a direct invitation. This decision seems quite controversial, especially considering recent roster changes that happened in

International Team Secret after The International 2015. All players, except Estonia Puppey, have left the team, leaving vacant places for former International Cloud9  players (Canada EternaLEnVy, Denmark MiSeRy), Sweden pieliedie and Romania w33. Anyway, International Team Secret is a reigning champion of ESL One, so there is no doubt that they deserve a place in the  New York championship. The new lineup of the team looks solid as well, so it would be interesting to see their debut.

 

ESL One New York will run from 3–4 October, and will feature $ 250 000 that will increase with every ticket sold in the Dota store.
