The seeds for this weekend's £4,000 Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournament at Insomnia 47 have been distributed. Of the 22 teams that have signed-up for the tournament, eight of them have received either a high or a low seed. Unlike previous Insomnia events, the 47th edition hasn't been able to attract any foreign teams as other tournaments taking place throughout the weekend with events such as Mind Sports Festival being hosted in Prague.
Brandon "Weber" Weber's fm-eSports will be looking to grab gold in Telford this weekend.
With the bigger international teams out of the picture, local fan favorites of fm-eSports have taken up one of the four high seeds and will definitely be looking to clinch gold on home soil as they yet to experience their first offline success in CS:GO after a poor showing at ESWC earlier this month. Completing the list of high seeded teams for i47 are the likes of CRG, VYE and Team Infused.
Making up the list of low seeded teams are Reason-Gaming, who are without HenryG for unknown reasons, Rocketmen, a team starring Shane who is rumored to be mTw's newest signing, as well as Mistral.Tt and freakz.
