TyLoo skip SL i-League Invitational
TyLoo have decided to skip SL i-League Invitational, as they wouldn't have enough time to acquire visas to the US for ELEAGUE if they attended the Ukrainian event.
As the winners of the Chinese qualifier for SL i-League Invitational, which is set to take place from May 19-22, TYLOO were supposed to travel to Kiev in two weeks to take part in the $100,000 eight-team tournament.
However, as SL i-League Invitational is close to the start of ELEAGUE's Group B (featuring the Chinese, NiP, G2 and OpTic), TYLOO wouldn't have enough time to obtain visas to the US if they were to attend the Ukrainian event.
TyLoo decided to withdraw from SL i-League Invitational
VG.CyberZen were first in line to replace them as the second-placed team of the qualifier, but they declined the invitation, which means the spot went to Born Of Fire (who placed third) instead.
The team list for SL i-League Invitational is following:
|Virtus.pro||Natus Vincere||Born Of Fire||FlipSid3|
SL i-League Invitational, which will have $100,000 on the line, will take place in Kiev, Ukraine from May 19-22.
