The first set of direct invites for StarSeries I-League Season 7 have been announced with 6 teams accepting the invite. 

Following are the teams that have been Directly invited for the event apart from the already invited Wild

  • Liquid

  • MIBR

  • Mousesports

  • NiP

  • NRG

  • Tyloo

The event is witnessing a lot of top-tier teams accepting the Direct Invite. The reason behind their participation could be due to the fact that the total prize pool for the event has gone up from $300,000 USD to $500,000 USD which has prompted these top guns to be part of the grand event.

We can observe that 5 out of the 6 teams invited are in the top 10 CS:GO world rankings as of 19th October 2018. While Tyloo is undeniably the best Asian CS:GO team at the moment after their exceptionally amazing performance at the FACEIT Major London CS:GO.

We can expect more higher ranked teams participating in the event and making it a landmark tournament of the year which can witness some intense and amazing CS:GO action right in the heart of Asian competitive CS, Shanghai. 

Following is the team list for the Chinese event till now:
