SK Gaming receive last invite to StarSeries i-League S5
The Brazilian team has received the last invitation to StarSeries i-League CS:GO S5 and completed the participant-list of the LAN-finals, which will be held from May 28 to June 3.
A day earlier, we announced that North, Gambit Esports and Virtus.pro will participate in the tournament in Kiev. They were invited due to the fact that distribution of spots to the LAN-part of the event was changed. As FaZe Clan, Fnatic, G2 Esports and Astralis rejected invites because of a busy schedule, they were sent to the participants of the regional qualifiers in CIS and Europe which there placed right after the winners, standing a step away from a ticket to StarSeries i-League.
Now, when one of the most titled teams in the history of the game joined the list of participants, we know the names of all sixteen teams, which will be fighting for the championship trophy of StarSeries i-League CS:GO.

Last time we saw SK Gaming at StarSeries i-League was the fourth season. Back then, Epitácio "TACO" de Melo was still playing for SK, and the Brazilian five took the 5-8th place after being defeated by his future team, Liquid. Right now, we have a former player of Cloud9 and a Major winner, Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip, on his place.
Tickets to the final days of StarSeries i-League S5 in Palace Ukraine can be bought on concert.ua.
The Brazilian team has entered a stage of rebuilding, giving the responsibilities of captain to Marcelo "coldzera" David and changing the in-game communication language to English after the Stewie transfer. It adds more interest to SK Gaming and makes us impatiently waiting for their performance at StarSeries i-League S5!
Current roster of SK Gaming:
- • Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
- • Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
- • Marcelo "coldzera" David
- • Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip
- • Ricardo "boltz" Prass
The prize-pool of the fifth season of StarSeries i-League CS:GO will amount to $300,000. Palace Ukraine will be the venue of the Playoffs, which will run June 2-3. Tickets to this event can be bought on concert.ua.
