AVANGAR triumph in Katowice
After the intense day 1 in Poland at Intel Extreme Masters plenty of teams still had chances to win the trophy. The first day game leaders from Optic couldn't manage to hold the first place and finished second. The most drammatic events occured in the final game where the leaders from AVANGAR dropped out first but still won the tournament.
Though to the visa issues the CIS team couldn't make it to Oakland no doubt they would receive direct invites to any major tournament they wish to participate.
