fnatic pull out of ESWC 2015

fnatic have cancelled their participation at ESWC 2015, the event's organisers have revealed.

The Swedish giants were due to attend the event in Montreal, where they would try to defend the title they won last year after beating LDLC, now known as EnVyUs, 2-0 in the grand final.

However, the DreamHack Open Summer champions have opted to relinquish their invite, citing a busy tournament schedule during the summer season, according to a tweet by ESWC.


fnatic will not try to defend their ESWC crown 

Replacing fnatic at the Canadian event will be Titan, who were expected to take part in the French qualifier, scheduled for next week, in Jeumont.

Team SoloMid were another pre-tournament withdrawal, because of family obligations, with the Danish side's slot in the $75,000 tournament being filled by Natus Vincere.

The list of participants for ESWC 2015, taking place from July 9-12, now looks as follows:

France Titan Sweden NiP
CIS Na`Vi France EnVyUs
Brazil Keyd Stars Australia ex-Vox Eminor
United States Team Liquid South Africa Bravado Gaming
China QeeYou United States Cloud9
Europe Team Kinguin Norway LGB eSports
United States CLG France ESWC France winner
Canada ESWC Canada winner CIS ESWC CIS winner

i would guess they are overworked. heard Olofm say that they were really sick of cs atm because too many weekends of travel and daily online matches..
2015-06-18 13:03
They pulled out cause they got tired of being everyone's daddy lately

2015-06-18 13:20
Missing Fnatic, TSM, and VP? Pretty average tournament now. Titan must be feeling happy because they were originally gonna have to go through lower bracket qualifier-qualifier stage to qualify lol.
2015-06-18 13:48
VP dismissed invitation weeks ago. Too low event to bother. fnatic are afraid there ll be no top 2 teams tsm nor vp to blame when they lose. lol
2015-06-18 14:00
Or maybe they just realized that its not worth it to go there when its far away and no good team will play anyway, and they really dont need to prove that they can beat someone like NiP or NV cus they've already beat them so many times. You can hate on fnatic however much you want, but it wont change the fact that they're a top 2 team right now.
2015-06-18 16:30
arguable top2, yes. vp was on a break from lans last month but they won the biggest event esea 18 so it s hard to say who is the clear nr 2 in last 3 months.
2015-06-18 16:47
You're so pathetic, and your arguements too. But I know you're trolling so I'll let you off the hook.
2015-06-18 16:49
you cant give fnatic credists for winning small lans without tsm nor vp while vp and tsm won the biggest events with fnatic playing them too. what is pathetic with it you mad nationalist swedish fanboy?
2015-06-18 16:52
fnatic is clearly in top2 teams right now, you're deluded if you think VP > fnatic at this point.
2015-06-18 17:30
yep, fnatic and TSM top2 right now, no doubt about that
2015-06-18 17:34
Sure, they won one big event, but not long before that fnatic won this event called ESL One Katowice, and have been winning smaller lans throughout the year. Fnatic have been playing better than vp so far this year, like it or not.
2015-06-18 17:06
check your reading skills ffs, last 3 months! katowice are already history. it was a fluke(with scandals like ghosting by flusha and krimz and bugged allus awp which gave fnatic victory over nip) as we see now. after katowice we have 4 big events. fnatic won nothing. 1 was won by VP, 3 won by TSM. yeah, fnatic so far won more in 2015 but not in last 3 months(which is now).
2015-06-18 17:21
can you not fake flag plz? because morons like you should be put in a mental institution... btw who gives a fuck about your 3 month rankings and his 6 month rankings except you 2 idiots ?
2015-06-18 17:33
i see you care very much
2015-06-18 17:35
um sorry, but Virtus Pro winning an event where half the teams are NA scrubs is not all that impressive. Fnatic has been consistently doing better than Virtus have, and you can choose to ignore the fact that Fnatic have beaten Virtus 3-0 in a best of 5 after ESEA, and have beaten Virtus 2-0 in an online bo3, 2-1 in another bo3, and have beaten Virtus in their online match in the ESL/ESEA pro league. So they literally haven't lost a single match to Virtus since ESEA.
2015-06-18 20:22
VP looked like T3 today, they're too inconsistent.
2015-06-18 21:51
meaningless match, they earn much more than 1,5k by betting + they saved strats and mind fucked opponent. pasha said before the match they ll throw.
2015-06-18 22:13
They just qualified for the main event before and they din't really care about that match. If u wattch VP games often u can see it easily. And I'm not even a fanboy. I think that Fnatic si better. For me VP is TOP 3
2015-06-19 17:08
vp is not in the top 2... they are probably 3rd best team right now.
2015-06-19 21:43
Haha
2015-06-18 19:04
You realize all of those teams turned them down for different reasons VP- Taz's Marriage TSM - Family Fnatic - I guess they are saying too many tournament?
2015-06-18 14:19
I understand, but I'm just pointing out the lack of some top teams.
2015-06-18 16:06
well I'm pretty happy about this, since it probably would've been Fnatic and TSM in the final if they were on opposite side of bracket, or just a final where Fnatic/TSM destroy the other team. This might be more interesting imo
2015-06-18 20:26
-2 NA teams +those 2 teams Imo would be better no offense to NA, but they have 5 teams in this tournament Also -France qualifier +VP
2015-06-18 20:44
in short those teams dont see eswc as important to make this event a priority which i agree. eswc is a shit now. they are shit since they resigned from cs.
2015-06-18 16:49
^^
2015-06-18 14:22
NEver heard about TSM?
2015-06-18 15:25
Yeah man, that's probably the biggest reason for this. If you have to play hours on end every day you can burn out pretty quick.
2015-06-18 13:07

There is no point attending a tournament when TSM isn't there. They have proven enough that they beat all the other teams, so there is no challenge for them at ESWC.

the point is to win the money, wtf m8.
2015-06-18 14:04
Maybe too little money for them to care. Believe me, money isn't their problem.
2015-06-18 14:05
If they can donate enough money to Keyd, when they were Kabum, in order to help them get to Katowice then I'm pretty sure they've got plenty of money to ignore this tourney.
2015-06-18 14:22
Sir that amount was in the low 4 figures.
2015-06-18 16:10
donate a 4 figure amount to my paypal if its such a small amount
2015-06-18 16:31
Oh ok, so how many people do you loan four figures for free on a daily basis?
2015-06-18 19:40
so why they attended all those t4 small lans in last month where there was no tsm? out of deseparion to win something, even meaningless small lans? :D
2015-06-18 16:50
Exactly.
2015-06-18 19:58
NIP is going to win this now
2015-06-18 14:54
omg rip
2015-06-18 12:49
told u, t3 if not t4 event
2015-06-18 13:55
you fucking crazy? we still have envy, nip, navi, titan, clg, cloud9 and keyd...these are all T2 top and T1 teams.
2015-06-18 14:36
so eswc= a major? ahahaa so dumb learn kid hltv.org/blog/10090-the-ranking-of-t1-te..
2015-06-18 14:49
There is no learning that will come from reading that shitfuck of a blog post.
2015-06-19 15:25
never said ESWC is a major...quit making up stuff yourself. Also a blogpost that has a subjective ranking method means nothing to me.

I just like them and theyre not bad, thats why I listed both...thefuck is wrong with you people

Sigh, you cannot hide oloxxx, cancer troll.
2015-06-18 16:25
This tournament is now T2.
2015-06-18 14:06
Only majors are really t1 tournaments in CS:GO right now (along with esl esea pro league finals coming up too) this was always a t2 event, still is, but barely I think.
2015-06-18 14:12
with 4 T1 teams participating I wouldnt call this a T2 event that easily, however I do agree with the majors are the only real T1 tournaments part.
2015-06-18 14:38
Needs more than just top teams to be called a t1 event. Needs the prestige, the prize money helps too. For example, you wouldn't call starseries finals a t1 event just because it had tsm fnatic vp and envyus there.
2015-06-18 16:26
thats why I said I agree with you at the end..:)

Probably too busy. What's ESWC's prizepool?
2015-06-18 12:50
yap..prizepool is too small for a team like fnatic
2015-06-18 12:51
Idk then. I expected it to be much lower.
2015-06-18 13:02
rather too big. in last months fnatic won nothing with prize pool more than 50k and only because those lans were too small for tsm and vp :D
2015-06-18 16:56
Why do you seem so adamant on making out that fnatic are worse than VP and TSM. EVERY comment i've seen from you is basically saying fnatic can't compete at LAN with VP & TSM. TSM/Fnatic is arguable. you can't just say TSM can beat Fnatic, they are #1. Fnatic can't LAN vs VP, VP are #2. At the end of the day Fnatic can beat every team and have a pretty good track record at the moment however TSM have been pulling out some wins as of late. Then again Titan can beat any team as well as long as they all playing on form that day, TITAN TOP1 CONFIRMED. (I added the idiotic part at the bottom, just to show you that you sound just as stupid)
2015-06-18 18:57
I think that's the total prize pool isn't it? That's not for first.
2015-06-18 13:34
correct, but 5k per person is still pretty nice "free" allowance for fnatic lmao

Who works fulltime in Sweden for 2k$? If they were payed 2k$ a month they would have left fnatic ages ago and gotten a new sponsor.

Yeah 75k total prize pool.

Yeah and then just go to Cologne and win that too:D
2015-06-18 13:09
more like lose, fnatic is so low they can only win tier 4 events. big events victories are only for tsm and vp.

fnatic won the only major so far this year, your argument is invalid

vp won 8 majors so what? all that is past and we have present now
2015-06-18 14:45
'8majors'
2015-06-18 14:53
vp won 8 majors and navi 4 so what? all that is past and we have present now and in the present now fnatic cant win shit if there are vp or tsm.
2015-06-18 14:52
yeah snax and byali are so rich bcus won 8 majors #swag
2015-06-18 15:11
they won more money than krimz or olofm no doubt.
2015-06-18 15:14
gyazo.com/500230a97d2df338d8cb12031dabb6.. snax and byali has been around in a topteam for longer aswell lmao
2015-06-18 15:16
u r even dumber, on this site prize money arent complete. add to this sticker money where only from katowice 2014 vp and nip got 5-10 times more than fnatic which was ~200k. add to this other 3 majors and byali won even twice more than krimz.
2015-06-18 15:18
"they won more money than krimz or olofm no doubt." Yeah I don't think sticker money counts as "won", moron. im done talking to you
2015-06-18 15:23
so what are sticker money then? you need to win games to get stickers and win much more be get legendary stickers u dumb fuck. only top teams have legendary sticker. eot + report u dumbfuck.
2015-06-18 15:28
what about gfinity where fnatic destroyed vp 3:0 in final? i see your point about tsm but vp is not on their level
2015-06-18 14:32
agree, vp is above atm. even in eslesea vp is the best
2015-06-18 14:46
Are you retarded? There was 1 major this year and Fnatic dominated that. They trashed VP in gfinity 3:0. They won the most out of everyone.
2015-06-18 14:53
who cares about 3 months+ old events? if you give a fuck about past then NIP is the best or VP. You look only at recent (last 3 months) results than fnatic is like a golden nova in comparison to tsm and vp.
2015-06-18 14:56
What the fuck are you on about? Fnatic won way more events. THEY HAVE NEVER PLACED OUT OF TOP 2 this year as far as I can remember. Maybe once or so. VP always gets trashed by Fnatic its not even interesting to watch. You are comparing best team in the world to some Polish Team that won 3 events in their history LOL.

It's not boring, it's tiring. $30,000 even IF they win divided by 5 and org probably takes 20%+ = only $5000. Not worth jet lag and flying which both fucking suck, a cramped schedule, and spending four hours a day signing shit for annoying fans because you're contractually obligated to. $5000 is like two weeks of pay for most decently intelligent people so spending a week of your life pushing yourself when you've been pushed nonstop to make that much is just stupid.
2015-06-18 20:50
It's HIGHLY unlikely that the org takes any of the prize money, Fnatic make all of their money from their sponsorships.

Second best team from brazil is almost on the level of keyd so i don't see your point?
2015-06-18 16:16
>Asia Pretty sure that they are going to get rekt (16-2; 5 max) >South America Haven't heard a lot about the second best Brazilian team, but I don't think that they would take more than 5-6 rounds. Also, SA=/=only Brazil; Never heard of any Chilean or Argentinian team, but if they would qualify, I think that they would be glad to get 2-3 rounds vs EU teams. In my opinion, that isn't very interesting, but could be beneficial to Asian/SA teams in the long run.
2015-06-18 18:53
So they wouldn't lose 16-0 to fnatic, they'd go for the elusive 16/-1?

ESWC is nowhere near its prime times in 1.6. With so many events with bigger prestige around its expected that best teams won't attend everthing.
2015-06-18 13:16
ESWC started colapsing, so many big teams cancelled their invitiation

Worst ESWC ever.
2015-06-18 13:35
So 4 teams have a chance. Nip, Na'vi, Envyus and Titan. Who will win it?
2015-06-18 13:35
no chance for titan though
2015-06-18 14:03
What do you mean? They got as many top 4 as NiP probably, been in some finals aswell. They got all the chances, maybe even more than NiP. Although envyUS are big favourites.
2015-06-18 14:56
titan won nothing (dhs with cheating kqly doesnt count), they are not champions.
2015-06-18 14:57
So? They achieved as much as NiP or even more this year. EnvyUS > Na'Vi/Titan > NiP.
2015-06-18 14:59
nip won asus rog at least and they are tier 1 team.
2015-06-18 15:01
Tier 3 event? Does that even count for a Tier 1 team as you say? Titan is Tier 1 aswell.
2015-06-18 15:02

rofl "major" here is to proof to people saying that the "golden5" team is the most victorious team in CS 1.6 history because they won more majors, when f0rest won way more money than they did. R O F L no one cares about MAJOR. people care about MONEY. nabz
2015-06-18 14:28
team is not the same what player, tard. forest was changing teams and players all the time while g5 was getting scammed by sponsors so ofc forest has more opportunities to farm money. this is a team game so look at forests teams, his teams won much less money than g5 so you ve got owned. forest won the most as player (taz and neo top3) but g5 the most as a team.
2015-06-18 14:32
dsn f0rest and carn are the 3 top player who earned more money in CS 1.6. they played together for what? 7 years? COINCIDENCE?
2015-06-18 14:37
ahhahha, lmao, so dumb
2015-06-18 14:48
dude... chill. if you can't argue, don't even start. i.imgur.com/auBJYdi.png (top 5 player$ cs 1.6) i.imgur.com/db1UIuf.png (best lineup CS history) the second image is legendary, DSN looked bad in this team. and im talking about DSN rofl

rip your brain, best lineup in cs history was navi. best team g5. best 4 players are neo, forest, taz and gtr. reported for trolling.

2015-06-18 15:14
haha u r so fucking dumb. forest is half polish (his mother is polish) so ofc he is on the top together with neo.

Makes sense... There's 6 weeks of time between the two 250K tournaments. And they'll probably start preparing at least 3 weeks before the second tournament. No point bothering with a 75K tournament across the world, with all the jetlag and effort involved and very little time to have a break in between.

I agree, if ESWC would have taken place in Paris or somewhere in EU, both TSM and Fnatic would have attended. Probably not VP since there is still Taz's wedding.

No top 2 teams. GG Canada-ESWC sucks compared to French one :/
2015-06-18 14:39

you should not follow other games right? the csgo is monopolized in Europe, any other game is dominated by the Chinese people, they played very well the CS 1.6, are always smart and good tactics, I believe they will be the major league's surprise, and show a new tactical level,I should have put them in the top10

2015-06-18 16:01
It must actually suck to play pro any video game, u never get to do different games as often and its the exact same shit everytime. Fnatic should have went anyways easy money (if they play like normal).

2015-06-19 05:31
expected. small prizepool only 30k and Fnatic want time off to prepare for ESL-ESEA 500K tourney. I would do the same considering every player walks away with less than 4 grand.
2015-06-19 05:39

2015-06-19 06:08
I think if Titan dont get far here then RIP them. I feel like their Org will drop them if they dont get the SEMI-Finals this tournament or someone will leave or be kicked. GL to them their careers may count on this tournament.
