Vega Squadron to replace LDLC at ESL BGW Invitational
The French team have chosen to call off the journey to Bucharest instead of fielding a stand-in and will keep their focus on the Europe Minor closed qualifier, scheduled for December 12-13.
Replacing them are Vega Squadron, who already have a spot in the IEM Katowice Major's New Challengers Stage. The CIS side's most recent LAN appearance came at StarSeries i-League Season 6, where they finished runners-up to ENCE.
The Bucharest Gaming Week Invitational by ESL will feature four teams, who will square off for a share of the €50,000 (~$56,700). Vega Squadron join AVANGAR and Sprout on the list of participants, with the final team coming out of the ESL Southeast Europe Championship Season 8 Finals.
