BeyondtheSummit recently announced the BTS Pro Series for EU/CIS, SEA, and the Americas. With some teams taking a break in this holiday season in almost every region, we witnessed a combo of relatively newer and old rosters getting direct invites to the tourney. However, in the Americas region, where six teams received a direct invite, Infamous Gaming has called out BTS for not including them in that pool, considering their series of decent results.
After BTS announced the direct invites to the BTS Pro Series S4: Americas, Infamous Gaming did not hide their disappointment at not being invited.
According to the South American team, they have been performing decently in recent online tournaments. Though they have not been able to secure tournament wins, Infamous Gaming has consistently made it to the top 4 in most of them, including BTS tournaments. The South American team had secured 3rd place in both the BTS Pro Series 3 and the recently concluded DOTA Summit 13. So their disappointment at not being invited is relatively justified.
The team's offlaner, Mariano "Papita" Caneda, also had pointed out his dissatisfaction for not providing a direct invite to his team.
BTS has not yet issued a response to these statements. Infamous Gaming will look to prove themselves by qualifying to the main tournament through the open qualifiers and securing a significant tourney win at Realms Collide S2.
