The name might not be finalized for the franchised league but the talent lineup is for sure worked out. Immortals Gaming Club and Cloud9 backed B Site League has roped in several prominent casters and analysts as the battle between two leagues heats up.

As ESL establishes dialogue with prominent top tier teams in Paris, B Site is wasting no time to get the finest of talent on its side. The upcoming league will be produced by FACEIT and the buy-in for teams is set at $2 million. MIBR, Cloud9, Gen.G and Mad Lions are four out of twelve participants according to reports earlier surfaced.

Counter-Strike analyst & esports historian Duncan “Thorin” Shields on Twitter said:

Reminder that talent who participate in this (B Site) league will not be available to participate in the next ESL Pro League season. We’ll see who the teams end up officially being but the talent war has already been won. We’re not necessarily finished either.

The schedule for B Site League and ESL Pro League is likely to clash and the talents signed with former won’t attend the latter and vice versa. The entire talent crew is:

  • Duncan “Thorin” Shields
  • Auguste “Semmler” Massonnat
  • Sean “[email protected]” Gares
  • Anders “Anders” Blume
  • Jason “moses” O’Toole
  • Daniel “ddk” Kapadia
  • James “JZFB” Bardolph
  • Christopher “MonteCristo” Mykles
  • Freya Spiers

The league will begin in March later this year.
