The Perfect World Twitter account was created after direct invites started to be handed out, but posts on the official website confirm that cn Invictus Gaming, eu Team Liquid, cn Newbee and cn Vici Gaming have already been invited.

Virtus.pro have maintained an extremely high level of performance in the Pro Circuit, especially considering the fact that they played two LAN events in December with their coach ua Ivan 'Artstyle' Antonov standing in for star support ru Aleksey 'Solo' Berezin. Their latest event was one of those two LANs, DOTA Summit 8, where VP took 1st place after beating Int Fnatic 3-1 in the Grand Final.

The CIS squad haven't played any matches since DOTA Summit since they've either been directly invited to or are not participating in any of the currently running qualifiers. Their next appearance will be at ESL One Genting 2018 on Jan 23-28.
