The talent for the IEM Katowice Minor was announced on Friday.

Some of the bigger names were excluded from the list which shows that many of them won't arrive until the actual Major in February. 

The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive minors will begin next week. The CIS and European regions will begin first on Jan. 16 before the Americas and Asia tournaments will begin on the 22. 

There are many storylines heading into this Major with the likes of Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev joining FaZe Clan or ​Finn "karrigan" Andersen joining Envy
