SPLYCE set to replace TheMongolz
SPLYCE are poised to take TheMongolz's spot at the offline qualifier for the MLG Columbus major.
With the qualifier scheduled to start on Friday, MLG is in a race against time to find a replacement for TheMongolz, who will miss the event due to visa issues.
CyberZen and Chiefs, both of whom finished 3rd-4th at the Asia Minor Championship, were the next names in line, but the Chinese team are unable to attend the event, while the Australian side cannot field the core of the lineup that competed in Taipei due to personal and passport issues.

This leaves SPLYCE, who finished runners-up to Enemy at the Americas Minor, next in line, with the invite due to be confirmed by MLG in the coming hours.
The North American team recently crashed out of the DreamHack Masters Malmö qualifier in the Round of 16 following a 0-2 defeat against NRG. They currently sit 11th in the ESL Pro League, with one victory from four games.
Arya "arya" Hekmat's men will be placed in Group C, together with CLG, Vexed Gaming and SK Gaming, with their first match pitting them against their North American rivals.
SPLYCE's roster is the following:
If Chiefs are unable to attend, we will invite 2nd place from the Americas minor: Splyce. We will know shortly. Thank you for your patience.— Adam Apicella (@MrAdamAp) February 23, 2016
