Let’s be honest, hosting an event like Gaming Paradise during the team shuffle may not have been the best idea in planning history. As a result, Natus Vincere reportedly had to back out of their $50,000 Dota 2 tournament due to experiencing, “Heavy roster changes.” Their spot at the event has been filled in by Virtus.pro, who just announced that their lineup was not going to change in the forseeable future. Thankfully it doesn’t look like any other teams will be withdrawing, though fans are still waiting for the final 2 teams to be announced.

4 Clovers & Lepricon and 4 Anchors and Sea Captain have both been reported by Gaming Paradise to have accepted their invitations and will also be participating in the tournament. The current lineup for the Dota 2 tournament on September 10th-12th is as follows:

  • Empire
  • Virtus.pro
  • Ninjas In Pyjamas
  • Alliance
  • 4 Anchors and Sea Captain
  • 4 Clovers & Lepricon

Gaming Paradise also announced their final lineup for their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament. This is following both Ninjas In Pyjamas and Team SoloMid dropping within a week of each other, which the event organizers were able to replace relatively quickly. This tournament, which will be taking place on September 6th-8th, will have the following lineup:

  • Natus Vincere
  • Virtus.pro
  • Titan
  • HellRaisers
  • Mousesports
  • CPH Wolves
  • Team Kinguin
  • E-Frag.net
