While announcing the teams FLASHPOINT announced that the member partners which had originally been set as 10 teams had been reduced to just 8, due to which Chaos and HAVU were handed out the remaining slots as they finished 3rd-4th in the qualifier.

The reports of FunPlus Pheonix entering CS:GO turned out to be true as they confirmed a slot in the qualifier by becoming a member partner, however, no news of them picking up the Heroic roster has surfaced yet.
