VGJ and Newbee are the first invites to May’s SL Invitational

It turns out the mistakenly announced StarLadder i-League Invitational Season 2 is coming in May after all, and the direct invites are starting to be announced.

The Starladder | i-League Invitational #1 was almost exactly one year ago, in mid-April 2016. Since so much has changed in the mean time, these invites do not have anything to do with the results of that event. cn Vici Gaming Reborn were the champions one year ago, but members of that team are now cnVici Gaming while some have moved on to other organizations.

cn Vici Gaming J have been invited instead, thanks to their solid results in DPL, Starladder | i-League StarSeries Season 3 and Dota 2 Asia Championships 2017.

The second invite goes to cn Newbee, and StarLadder cites the team’s results in DPL as well as ESL One Genting 2017.

Similar to the last Invitational, the LAN event will feature just eight teams Last year’s event had six invites and two qualifier teams but StarLadder have not announced if that break down will change this year.

What has been confirmed is that the tournament will take place on May 18th-21st in Shanghai, China, as originally announced.
