US replace LGB at TECHLABS Finals
Universal Soldiers have been invited to replace LGB eSports, who withdrew due to visa issues, at TECHLABS Cup Finals in Moscow next weekend.
Originally the four team roster for the $20,000 finals event which also gives out one spot for DreamHack Winter was NiP, Astana Dragons, LGB eSports and either 3DMAX or Universal Soldiers.
3DMAX bested Universal Soldiers in a best-of-three series for the fourth spot at the finals, and Natus Vincere replaced NiP as one of the participants due to the Swedes wanting to focus on DreamHack.
TaZ's US head to Moscow
Now the other Swedish side LGB eSports have had to withdraw due to visa issues, and have been replaced by Universal Soldiers, who came the closest to qualifying for the $20,000 finals.
With Astana Dragons having already been invited for DreamHack Winter, and US qualifying at RaidCall EMS One Fall Finals, the stakes are even higher for the other two teams who don't yet possess spots. New semi-final pairs are:
|Astana Dragons||vs. Na`Vi|
|Universal Soldiers||vs. 3DMAX|
TECHLABS Cup finals will take place on November 16-17th in Moscow, Russia and HLTV.org will provide full coverage of the $20,000 tournament from home.
