GS Sirius grabs 3rd in VIPL S3 as Cerberus heads to EU Finals
Spring in the air = another season of VIPL. OGN graciously invited GankStars Sirius to return for season 3 of the coveted world-level competition. Last season the guys placed third after going 3-0 in the group stages and losing to a sister North American team, Alliance. They did, however, win the match for 3rd by defeating Hunters from China.
It seems history does tend to repeat itself at time as this season Sirius had the same run: 3-0 in the group stages, but defeated in the semifinals by team Hack from Korea. They then defeated Team Good Luck (Japan) to place 3rd again, winning around $7500 in prize money and (hopefully) a chance to return back to Seoul.
We thank OGN for the invitation, Mobcrush and GO CUBES for the support, and our awesome fans for the viewership and many, many tweets & messages. (Despite Sirius not being able to attend NA Live Championships as they chose to go to VIPL instead, GankStars sold out of most jersey sizes, hats, and stickers at the event!)
European Live Championships
Meanwhile, our European team Cerberus is headed to Spring EU Live Championships as #2 seed. While the starter jungler L3oN couldn't attend, AeOn joins TetnoJJ and Emirking in his stead. Who is AeOn? We thought you would ask, so we made this short teaser to introduce him:
