Team Vitality, Evil Geniuses to take part in StarSeries i-League S8

Team Vitality and Evil Geniuses have confirmed their participation in the LAN-finals of the eighth season of StarSeries i-League CS:GO, which is set to run in Belek, Turkey, on October 21-27.

Team Vitality

Vitality is the strongest CS:GO lineup that France has to offer, and one of the best teams in the world that occupies the #6 spot in HLTV’s Ranking. Earlier, Richard "shox" Papillon joined the team after representing G2 Esports for three and a half years. According to the official statement of Team Vitality, this transfer is the most expensive one in the organization’s history.

Evil Geniuses NRG

It’s been only two weeks since Evil Geniuses came back to Counter-Strike as they signed the former lineup of NRG Esports prior to ESL One New York 2019. Back then, when the core of EG (CeRq, Ethan, Brehze) was representing NRG, they participated in three seasons of StarSeries i-League CS:GO in a row, always making the Playoffs. Now, they have a new leader, and maybe, the guidance of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz is exactly what they needed to conquer their first StarSeries i-League trophy!
