Heroic to replace forZe at IEM Chicago
The vacant tournament spot will be taken by Heroic after forZe were forced to withdraw from the event due to visa issues. The Danish team had finished in second place in the European qualifier after losing to the Russian side in the final.
Heroic recently competed at ESL One Cologne and at the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals, falling short just before the playoffs in 7-8th place at both events.
The complete team list for IEM Chicago now looks as follows:
Unfortunately, visa complications will prevent @forzegg from travelling to #IEM Chicago. @heroicgg will take their place in the Transatlantic Showdown to complete our teams roster. pic.twitter.com/eKaVHVWQlQ— Intel®ExtremeMasters (@IEM) July 11, 2019
