EnVyUs, BIG pull out of GG:Origin IEM Sydney Qualifier
To fill in the gap, the organizers have invited Singularity and LDLC to the qualifier.
The first two groups of the GG:Origin IEM Sydney 2018 Qualifier have already been played out, with Windigo and AVANGAR topping their respective groups and making into the second stage, the single-elimination bracket where they will be joined by invited teams such as Gambit and HellRaisers.
The start of group D was scheduled for yesterday, but last-minute, personal reason withdrawals from Envy and BIG put a hold on that. Replacing them will be LDLC and Singularity, ranked #39 and #44 respectively, which makes AGO the favorite to make it through to the playoffs now. The final team in group D is Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov's EPG.
