SK Gaming's US division is on the list alongside IEM world champions, Evil Geniuses and last year's MLG winners, compLexity Gaming Black. Former Button Bashers will be the only non-US team at the event, though even they are playing under an American tag these days by the name of Loaded Black. Their team-mates Loaded Blue will also be there after a decent showing at the IEM US regionals last year.
The full list, except the two empty spots, looks like this:
- Nerdstompers Black
- Fnatic wow
- compLexity Gaming Red
- compLexity Gaming Black
- PK Cards
- Evil Geniuses
- Loaded Blue
- Rensy's Team
- Skill Capped US
- Skill Capped International
- Skill Capped West
- Arena Pwnage
- SK Gaming USA
Apart from the obvious big names, perhaps the most interesting teams will be the ones sponsored by tutorial websites. ArenaPwnage.com has one team looking to make a name for itself against the best America has to offer. Skill Capped - a more well known website - will be sending three teams in total, one from each US timezone (West, Central, East). The East team even features ex-SK man, Joe 'Enforcer' Morrone who will bring title-winning credentials to an inexperienced team.
