SZ Absolute replace Flash at EPL S7 APAC Finals

Japan's SCARZ Absolute has been revealed as Flash Gaming's replacement for the event kicking off tomorrow in Sydney, Australia.

According to the Japanese organization's announcement on Twitter, it has been revealed that Flash Gaming could not participate in ESL Pro League Season 7 Asia-Pacific Finals due to problems with acquiring their visas for the Australian event.

Flash Gaming finished third in the Chinese closed qualifier, which cemented themselves a slot for the Asia-Pacific event, whilst SCARZ Absolute finished 5-6th in the qualifier behind Eclipse in fourth place, with the latter possibly facing visa issues too.

Laz and co. will fill in for Flash at EPL APAC on short notice

Currently ranked #120 in our world rankings and #10 in our Asian regional rankings, the top Japanese roster SCARZ Absolute made headlines after qualifying for WESG 2017 World Finals and securing an invite to StarLadder ImbaTV Chongqing Invitational 2018.

ESL Australia have not revealed the schedule for the tournament that is set to start tomorrow from April 20-22. The updated team list for ESL Pro League Season 7 Asia-Pacific is as follows:

Korea MVP PK Mongolia TheMongolz
Australia Grayhound Australia ORDER
Australia Tainted Minds Singapore BOOT-d[S]
