Recently there has been rumors floating around that the Lebanese team, FailMicro have been maphacking in official matches, more specifically matches in BoM and ISC8. Investigations have been done and the verdict is in.

After consulting with IceFrog as well as looking at all possible evidence, FailMicro has been found guilty of maphacking and thus the team will be disqualified from both Battle of Masters as well as the Intel Super Cup.

Vilat mentioned in his statement on, that some will not agree with the decision, but the decision was done with serious thought as well as consulting the most knowledgeable people in the field.

With the disqualification, Na'Vi will have to play Macedonian team, Global Challengers, to find out who will head into the semi-finals of BoM. ICS grids will remained unchanged, due to the team already in the Loser Brackets and their disqualification will not change the playoff brackets.
