  • "Booncz" ,
    BTW anybody knows, what happened to VP, why they withdrew? I mean there are no tournaments directly conflicting with this one...Are they just tired, from all the traveling they've done in past few months, I guess they traveled to almost every LAN they could lately. Or some internal issues maybe? EDIT: thumbs up for leaving the competition before it starts, those mid season quitters are not acceptable in professional sports...
    • Andreea "divushka" Esanu ,
      they said the main focus for the team right now is to practice for the Kiev Major. u can find the info on their official website
    • James "Yared" A ,
      Their manager sensed something is off with his boys under the current meta. And he particularly points to the team lacking confidence to step up right now. I bet the whole team felt that they don't want to disappoint their fans or sponsors.
  • Prima "Mary.Elizabeth" Mawitjere ,
    easy 8th place for navi..
  • ivan "outoftheway" berbatov ,
