TWC lineups for Canada, USA revealed
E-frag.net have come forward with the official team presentations for Canada and the USA, two of the 16 nations that will be playing in The World Championships in a month's time.
With the $100,000 World Championships, which will take place at the Sava Centar in Belgrade, Serbia on October 8-11, fast approaching, E-frag.net have begun to release official team presentations which include player lineups, interesting facts, and the official jersey of each team.
The first presentation is for the two North American teams to qualify, Canada and the United States of America.

E-frag have posted the lineups for both North American teams as well as previews of each team's jersey, which can be found on the official page here. The lineups for both countries are:
|Canada||United States of America|
|Pujan "FNS" Mehta (CLG)||Todd "anger" Williams (Winterfox)|
|Keith "NAF" Markovic (Conquest)||Josh "jdm64" Marzano (CLG)|
|Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen (compLexity)||Mohamad "mOE" Assad|
|Damian "daps" Steele (Conquest)||Tarik "tarik" Celik (CLG)|
|David "DAVEY" Stafford (3sUP)||William "RUSH" Wierzba (Conquest)|
|Alexander "LeX" Deily (Winterfox) (coach)|
The biggest surprise to many will no doubt be the presence of the well-known mOE who, despite a long hiatus from the Invite and Pro League levels of play, remains a streaming personality and consistent competitive player in in the scene.
Neither country's roster fields Cloud9 players as the team will be traveling to Australia at the same time for the Crown's Invitational, an overlapping event which also dismantled Australia's attendance at TWC 2015 and will exempt Virtus.pro's players from the Polish lineup should that nation qualify.

Both teams will receive all-expenses-paid trips to Serbia for the event. Specific jerseys for Team Canada and Team USA can be purchased at E-frag.net's shop and will help contribute to the prize-pool, as well as to specific players should a name on the jersey be selected.
Eight more teams out of 16 remain to be determined for the 2015 World Championships, all of them hailing from Europe, as the third qualification round is about halfway done at the current moment.
