A couple of days ago, we announced the first two CS:GO teams invited to Intel Extreme Masters San Jose: Team SoloMid and Team EnVyUs. Now, we are thrilled to be able to add to the lineup the home turf representatives with Cloud9 and Luminosity Gaming!
Both teams are dominant in the North American CS:GO scene, clinching top spots in the NA ESL ESEA Pro League. Cloud9 are a frequent participant in some of the world’s biggest CS:GO tournaments, including Valve majors. However, the team has gone without a victory for some time now. Will we finally see them triumph at the biggest North American CS:GO tournament in San Jose?
Luminosity Gaming won the hearts of many fans at ESL One Cologne 2015 with their upbeat attitude. They have yet to claim victory at a tournament with their new team roster (former Keyd Stars). However, they seem to be in good shape, having secured second place at their last three events, and we are looking forward to seeing them perform at the SAP Center among other top teams.
IEM returns to San Jose in November!
We now know four out of the eight teams which will be competing in the Intel Extreme Masters San Jose CS:GO tournament. Be sure to keep an eye out for more news on who will be joining Cloud9, Luminosity, TSM and EnVyUs, and don’t miss the biggest Counter-Strike event in North America - get your ticket here!
