March 19th, 2013 22:23

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 could be flying to Dallas for ESEA

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.

Wohohoho <3

Putin has forbidden to go to the U.S. Russian children so the U.S. Embassy had no choice:)
2013-03-20 17:15
Lol, "awesome"? Nope, it's "awesome" to kill little Russian kids, don't you think so? Did you even try to understand, why we had to adopt this law? I don't know where are you from, but I know that word "Putin" makes Americans to shit out some bricks :)
2013-03-20 18:39
No i don't understand. You adapt this law only because of Americans Magnitsky Act. I think you forgot to mention that 60 thousands children are (were) adopted from Russian orphanages by Americans per year! It is their chance for normal life. There were some incidents in USA with those little children but pathology is everywhere, deal with it. This excuse about killing is just ridiculous. I don't know what newspapers wrote about that act, but you barely have free media,so try to read about your act on English sites.
2013-03-20 20:40
And btw, Russia is not European country.

esea invite policy for this: play.esea.net/index.php?s=esports&d=comm.. esea: Teams who qualify or are designated as replacement team (with 16 days notice prior to the first day of the LAN) are required to attend LAN playoffs. In the event that an initially qualified team cannot attend, the next team in the standings will be contacted to replace them until a replacement is confirmed. If for any reason your team cannot attend with the proper amount of players (5 for CS 1.6, CS:S, CS:GO, or 6 for TF2), all team members (paid and non-paid players) that are rostered on the team at the time of the roster lock, will be banned for 1 (one) season or more at the discretion of the league commissioner and league officials. Your team will also be removed from your respective Invite division.
