Who are the new teams in the Challengers Division?

We know Thunder, XSV, Aftershock, Vicious and 187 will be playing in the Challengers division.

We now know (thanks to this thread) that both Top Gun and Texas Storm will be joining them.

Who are the D1, Millennium or NPPL Pro teams that will be joining them to round out the division?

Challenger's Division (so far)
Thunder
XSV
Aftershock
Vicious
187 Crew
Top Gun
Texas Storm

Can't wait to see who will join it. Maybe DMG and Boom? Or Storm and T1? Maybe a new pro team forms?

No, a few D1 teams were invited from last years standings. TX Storm, Top Gun, and Grad I believe.

It sounded like they were waiting to see how some teams did this weekend.

It would be interesting to see Boom move up to the Challengers Division, seeing as how they just went D1 this year, and half the core team had bumped to Shock. The sister teams would be playing each other.

The only downfall I see to the challengers league, is can the teams that are in get better by not playing teams that are better then them? I mean I see the top few teams in the challengers dominating the others, and then if you arent exposed to Heat, Damage, and Dyansty like teams, then you will never make it to the top. The only way to get to the top is to play the best teams. Just my .02

They will be playing teams better than themselves though. If a team is the best team in the Challengers division, then they'll get promoted to Champions and have a shot at the best teams in the world and will no longer be in Challengers.

Well the real key when it comes to your opponents isn't who you play during the event, it's who you practice against between the events.
