Serbia replace Brazil at TWC

As Brazil was unable to deliver a lineup in the required time, Serbia will fill in the South American spot at The World Championships.

Earlier this month Australia had to withdraw from The World Championships after qualifying with a 14-man lineup, due to a conflict with the Crown's Invitational in Melbourne.

Brazil have now found themselves in a similar situation. Although neither of Games Academy or Luminosity have a tournament close to the finals in Serbia, both organizations decided against letting their players go to Belgrade in less than three weeks.


k1Ng0r's Serbia replace Brazil at The World Championship 

Team manager Philip Renan was thus unable to complete a lineup in time, and E-Frag were forced to find another solution. Surprisingly, the spot will not stay within South America for unspecified reasons, as Serbia has been invited as the host nation.

Their team have failed to qualify on their own. Serbia ended up in fifth place in group B with a win over Ukraine, a tie with Netherlands and three losses, to Hungary, France and Spain.

Currently, teams qualified for The World Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, taking place from October 8-11, are following:

United States USA Canada Canada  Tunisia Tunisia Indonesia Indonesia
Kyrgyzstan Kyrgyzstan  China China Vietnam Vietnam  Serbia Serbia
Europe TBD Europe TBD Europe TBD Europe TBD
Europe TBD Europe TBD Europe TBD Europe TBD

The European qualifier is currently underway, groups A and B have already been played out and eight teams have secured a place in the deciding round of 16. You can find the current standings here.

For real it's kinda unfair for SA, they should've let Argentina replace Brazil, they were in the qual. finals and they are from the same region, WHY WOULD YOU PUT ANOTHER EU TEAM IF IT IS WORSE THAN ARG?

It would be even better for the whole continent scene, Arg would get a chance to do what KaBuM did 1st time last year and use it to improve, but appearently it wasn't meant to be... Really wrong.

They didnt want to pay the trip to Argentina so they decided to put Serbia in because it´ll be a lot cheaper.

Allu is a BOT, that's obvious. Have fun hosting another corrupted event in serbia, where the best players do not even get a chance to represent their country as the player picking system is flawed while the event calls itself "World championships 2015". (expected from 3rd world organizer). Also, had an absolute blast watching ESEC 2014 that was hosted by efrag, event started 3h delayed, the stream didn't have sound at all for 2 maps, the event was streamed on shitbox as the organizers were willing to sell their event for quick money and stream it on the worst platform. Really looking forward to this tier 1 event with quality production. Im kidding, NT serbia.

People, it's very easy to understand "Why Argentina is not going to Serbia": 1# This tournament is held by Serbians who didn't qualified for the WTC actually, so.. give a Serbians a 2nd chance. 2# Argentinians? Who cares? I prefer to save ticket-money instead. Easy. We need to learn from this... all the free publicity, energy and time we gave... they just don't deserve it. PS: I don't know other countries realities but, as argentinians... we don't need any VISA to go to Serbia. SO, there's actually no excuse for it. "Los ciudadanos de la República Argentina, de la República de Chile y de la República Oriental del Uruguay no necesitan visa para entrar en la República de Serbia..." (Citizens from Argentina Republic, Chile Republic and Uruguay Republic don't need a VISA to enter Serbia...)

But it's unfair and I disagree with your point 'cause who cared to KaBuM on ESCW 2014? Losing for Titan and all, who would care? They used it to improve not only themselves, but the whole country scene, so I think it would be so good on the future, but eFrag doesn't think on other countries but their home one. And also Serbia has it's chance and lost it, I know that it applies to Arg as well but they are from another continent that has nothing to do with SA.

Yes... I'm with you bro. We should get our boots and boycott the event. These goldiggers are playing with our effort and dedication. For an Sport that doesn't give you much in return, economically speaking here in Arg, this was huge. For us, argentinians, having this kind of opportunity is a breakandthrought in our society... with this kind of recognition we may get some attention from the same companies that in Europe are willing to give some sugar to Europeans Teams but, 0 u$s in order to build a scene anywhere else. The same scene that was build by people like you and me in first place. They just want to collect, not to harvest.

Use yhe "reply" button my friend. And damn you are right, we should complain about this to make sure that this doesn't happen to anyone again. THIS DECISION IS NOT FAIR! They should not be able to call themselves TWC. We have the right to know those "unspecified reasons that are considering a team that lost almost every match on the qualifier against a team that came second after the team that dropped out from the tournament. This is common sense, I don't think I'm saying crazy things. Kam1kaze you should consider along with ch4k3nio making a formal complaint about it. I can help you translating it if you need me to.
