Vici Gaming has accepted an invitation to StarSeries & i-league CSGO Season 7. The Chinese team takes the place of Rogue, who recently made the choice to dissolve their Counter-Strike team.

The last time we saw VG, they had finished second in the WESG China Last Chance qualifier to 5Power Gaming. VG has consistently performed well in qualifying tournaments and Minors but have not made the field for a Major since December 2017.
Rogue officially departed from the CSGO team less than two weeks before StarSeries & i-league CSGO Season 7 was set to start. This disbanding was facilitated by star player Hunter “Sick” Mims signing with CompLexity Gaming and the duo of Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen and Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen “were approached with an opportunity to go home to Denmark and form a new Danish roster.”
StarSeries & i-league CSGO Season 7 will kick-off on March 30 in Shanghai. The 16 teams will compete in a Swiss System Format with the top eight from Group Stages moving onto the playoffs.
