Na`Vi to replace TSM at ESWC

The ESWC organisers have announced that Natus Vincere will replace Team SoloMid at the upcoming world finals.

The Danish team have been forced to withdraw from the Canadian event, scheduled for July 9-12, as family obligations during that week will prevent the players from flying to North America.

Replacing the CCS champions will be another European heavyweight, Na`Vi, who will thus skip the CIS qualifier, to which they had received an invite.


Na`Vi invited to ESWC 2015 in TSM's stead 

On ESWC's website, Na`Vi coach Sergey "starix" Ischuk is listed as the team's fifth player, instead of Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács. Contacted by HLTV.org, the Slovakian AWPer guaranteed that it was a mistake on ESWC's part and that he will attend the event.

The list of participants for ESWC 2015 currently looks as follows:

Sweden fnatic Sweden NiP
CIS Na`Vi France EnVyUs
Brazil Keyd Stars Australia Vox Eminor
United States Team Liquid
Slovakia Ladislav 'GuardiaN' Kovács

2015-06-04 17:13
this will change after this summer, because then they will play fulltime 100%. 4/5 members are currently studying while playing.
2015-06-04 17:17
Yes im well aware of this. Will be interesting
2015-06-04 17:47
They're in college or what? Still highschool?
2015-06-04 19:07
I think device is at his last year of the danish equivalent of high school, while karrigan soon graduates from university. Don't know about the rest
2015-06-04 19:26

oh unexptected, wait not really, TSM only plays in like fucking 2 events a year and now when they won 2 events back to back they are too scared to go to a fucking lan because they want to keep their number "1" spot or some shit. they wont show up at lan again until next major probably.
