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.

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.

|Keyd Stars||ex-Vox Eminor|
|Team Liquid||Bravado Gaming|
|Team Kinguin||LGB eSports|
