ESEA has announced that Polish side ESC Gaming have been invited to replace Virtus.pro in season 13's LAN Finals.
The Russia-based team had secured a spot at the ESEA Invite finals, which will take place next month in Dallas, after finishing third in the European division's regular season, with 30 points from 16 matches.
However, it has now been revealed that Virtus.pro have been forced to pull out of the tournament due to visa problems, as the team did not expect to receive the proper documentation in time.
As a result, n!faculty have now been promoted to the third seed, which means that they will take on the second-seeded North American side, Curse.
ESC Gaming, who finished in fifth place in the European division, have been invited to replace Virtus.pro, but have yet to say whether they can make it to the tournament.
If the Polish giants accept the invite, they will take on Quantic Gaming, who are the North American champions.
Meanwhile, ESEA stated that it will only decide whether Virtus.pro will keep their place in season 14's Invite League after the upcoming LAN finals in April.
