Mobility Gaming have decided against attending the ESWC finals, HLTV.org has learned.

The Canadian team had earned a place at ESWC after finishing runners-up to iBUYPOWER at the North American qualifier, in Montreal, which was held in July.

After initially turning to the community to fund their attendance at the event, Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz's team tried to look for another organisation to represent in Paris.

However, such plans have gone up in smoke, as Mobility Gaming have informed the ESWC organisers that they will not able to attend the event.

To fill the slot left vacant by Mobility, the ESWC organisers have decided to allocate an extra place to the Portuguese/Spanish qualifier, which will take place from October 3-5 in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Below you can find the list with the teams that have already qualified and with the qualifiers and affiliated tournaments that have been announced:

sad. Although they would've gotten rekt. Would've rather liked to see Elevate or Denial given the spot or something though
2014-09-30 17:27
Why not one more for Poland? :(
2014-09-30 17:29
why more for poland? you have only 1 good team...
2014-09-30 17:32

I think the reason they skipped was because davey and slip left the team, not because they are LAN dodgers :)

Expected. I said they'd better sell their spot.
2014-09-30 17:40
I don't understand why NA would get a LAN qualifier in the first place. Now NA gets one less spot because of it.
2014-09-30 17:42
No, we deserve 3 slot, if the damn NA scene can stay together more than 3 month we can produce 1 more good team

why give another spot to portugese/spanish instead of another country entirely, like uk? :)
2014-09-30 17:56
Because Spain and Portugal have K1ck Overgaming and Outbreak who are all as good if not better than The Lone Rangers
2014-09-30 18:28
outbreak suck. Overgaming just disbanded.

2014-09-30 18:32
Will they return the money received from the community? :p
2014-09-30 18:37
you know they won't return the money and I said this would be a waste because they are not that good and would not get a sponsor either...just a waste and the reason I did not donate to them
2014-09-30 18:45
GO KABUMMM
2014-09-30 18:50
Right choice , otherwise MG will go home on the 2nd day. :D
2014-09-30 18:53
wow, I would have gone through hell just to play at the ESWC. I think its a shame they didn't get to go, now that they earned the spot.
2014-09-30 19:04

2014-09-30 19:57
this is why you don't make news about asking for donations for completely unknown teams in NA.
2014-09-30 21:06
and what about the money that some might have donated?
