February 17-25 will see some of the best talent Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has to offer go to battle in Kiev, Ukraine for a share of $300,000.
16 Teams will descend on the Cybersport Arena, Kiev, to take part in yet another instalment of the StarLadder i-League StarSeries. Last seasons winners were Faze Clan, although back then they still had Aleksi "allu" Jalli and Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey in their lineup.

Participating teams

The list of participating teams is a varied one, ranging from the Major Champions in Cloud9, the team ranked number 1 in the world Faze to teams hoping to show what they are capable of on the international stage such as MVP PK. With some new rosters to keep our eyes on, it will be an interesting test early on in the year for all those involved.
