Newbee unable to attend EMC #2 LAN due to passport issue
Newbee, after successfully qualifying for the Excellent Moscow Cup #2's LAN event in Moscow, have withdrawn from the competition, citing a lost passport as the cause.
After successfully defeating Tongfu.WZ in the Excellent Moscow Cup #2's Chinese qualifiers, TI4 Champions Newbee have pulled out of the EMC's LAN finals set to be held in Moscow, on September 26-27. In Newbee's official Tencent Weibo page, this announcement was posted:
Which can be translated into: "One of our players have lost his passport, and we cannot attend the EMC's LAN event next weekend. We are very sorry, and would like to apologize to both the viewers and the organizers."
LGD Gaming have been selected by the event's organizers to take Newbee's place at the EMC's LAN event, competing with the other qualified teams for the $60,000+ prize pool.
For now, however, the EMC #2's Western qualifiers are still ongoing, with Na'Vi currently on top of the leaderboards, and games scheduled to be played until September 20th.
