Ninjas in Pyjamas Disqualified from EU LCS Replacement Matches
In a post on Twitter, Riot Nick Allen has confirmed that Ninjas in Pyjamas are disqualified from the EU LCS Replacement Matches.
NIP is being disqualified for not being able to field a full lineup. We are moving to a Bo3 between MYM and SHC for the 8th LCS spot.— Nick Allen (@RiotNickAllen) January 11, 2014
Meanwhile, several other Tweets have confirmed that there was an issue with Zorozero’s client, although specifics are still unclear:
Its a human mistake to forget something, i have no hard feelings towards @ZorozeroLoL.— Erlend Nukeduck Holm (@nukeducklol) January 11, 2014
Depite the fact that jungler John “hyrqBot” Velles stepped down from the team only moments before the crucial games, it appeared as though NiP would still be participating in today’s event. However, the issues with Zorozero forced Riot to remove them from the tournament after several delays. It seems as though the team is tring to remain positive after this seemingly collosal blunder, as Nukeduck cheerfully Tweeted:
We dont even take it bad tbh, not we have the chance to rebuild the team in coke league ^-^— Erlend Nukeduck Holm (@nukeducklol) January 11, 2014
Therefore, the two remaining replacement teams Supa Hot Crew and Meet Your Makers will now play in a best of three to determine who will enter the EU LCS is the place of the removed Lemondogs. The stream can be found here.
