ASUS ROG announces the full player list and more details about the upcoming $10 000 USD invitational tournament ASUS ROG The GD Invitational held in Stockholm 13-14 October.
Only two weeks to go until the next ASUS ROG Tournament starts in Stockholm, Sweden. As we previously announced, eight European players are invited to battle over the trophy in the two day tournament in a laid back environment provided by the GD Studio crew and their house. Earlier, we revealed three names ( ROG.elfi, Empire.Kas, TLAF-Liquid.Ret), but now the roster is complete with the remaining five invites going to some of the best names in Europe: EG.Stephano.RC, EG.ThorZaIN.RC, mouz.MaNa, Karont3.LucifroN and FnaticRC.NightEnD.
There has been a change in the tournament format since the last announcement. The group stage will be played in a round robin format instead of the GSL style double tournament format. The reason for this is that with only one player dropping out in a group the usual problems in a round robin system are avoided, and also the GSL style group doesn’t leave much suspense for the last match as both of the players are going to advance regardless of the result.
More details such as groups and schedule released closer to the tournament.

Roster looks awesome! Not many Zergs so Kas and Lucifron have a shot at going far. I like it a lot, thanks for doing this invitational! Can't wait to see The GD Studio producing a tournament out of their own home.
