SLTV StarSeries VIII Coverage: Day One

The best teams of Europe are gathering once again in Kiev to decide who is the most worthy of the championship title. But the title itself is only the tip of the iceberg. Deep under the water hide other notable advantages, for instance, a prize pool of 130 000 dollars that grows relentlessly. From the 17th to 19th of January Cybersport Arena will open its doors once more to guest from all parts of the continent. And we will do our best to inform you of all details of the event.


We’ve already grown accustomed to seeing at least a few teams from the CIS region at the SLTV stage. But in season VIII Western European teams had more luck. Increased prize pool and improved travel support have drawn the attention of foreign squads. Conditions have improved not only for players but for the audience as well – now you may book a table in advance for a comfortable match viewing or buy tickets with a guaranteed seat. And all of this comes in conjuncture with the usual bonuses – comfortable atmosphere, excellent cuisine and best commentators from around the world and CIS.
