Grayhound, ORDER withdraw from eXTREMESLAND 2019 Asia Finals

Due to scheduling issues, Grayhound and ORDER will not be competing at the $100,000 eXTREMSLAND 2019 Asia Finals, with Genuine and Ground Zero coming in as replacements.

While the announcement of the two Oceanic teams pulling is revealed just a few days before the start of eXTREMESLAND 2019 Asia Finals (November 14-17), the overlap with the ESL Pro League S10 APAC group stage (November 16-18) was an issue known since the Oceania Regional Finals which took place at the end of October in Sydney.

Grayhound have pulled out of eXTREMESLAND in hopes of another EPL Finals appearance

The four teams involved — Grayhound, ORDER, Chiefs, and AVANT—, and two tournament organizers attempted to find a solution, the obvious one being changing the ESL Pro League dates, but according to a report by HTT News, AVANT was against that proposition, which stopped it from happening.

With the original dates sticking, Grayhound and ORDER decided to pull out of eXTREMESLAND and prioritize ESL Pro League Season 10, while eXTREMSLAND decided against inviting the next two teams based on the Regional Qualifier (Chiefs and AVANT) as replacements and have instead given the chance to Oceanic squads Ground Zero and Genuine. The decision was explained in the official statement from the tournament organizer:

"Over the past few weeks, and after countless discussions with all teams involved as well as ESL Australia and ESL Global, we have come to a decision. Because there were so many elements to the equation (including visa statuses, logistics, fairness etc), we believe the final decision had to do it’s best to overcome these issues while remaining true to the competitive spirit of eXTREMESLAND." - official statement

The updated schedule for eXTREMESLAND 2019 Asia Finals, which will take place on November 14-17 in Shanghai, China, is now as follows:

Meanwhile, the following four squads will fight online for one ESL Pro League spot in the APAC group stage on November 16-18:

Avant thought they had a chance for a pro league spot if grayhound and order weren't there. I'm sure they decided to ditch extremeland for the fact they want to deny a spot from avant. Lol

isnt it weird that 1 team refusing to reschedule can cause all this? if a workaround really was blocked by avant, that is a dick move. holds back our scene internationally.

Yeah it's honestly so confusing. Avant didn't even take an extremesland spot and they have zero chance of.making it to epl final. Snake sterling still mad Grayhound kicked him

+1, also bad decision by ORDER to withdraw, they aren't getting an EPL spot and they would probably have a better chance of money at extremesland

chiefs and order should've just taken those extremesland spots
2019-11-11 10:20

2019-11-11 17:38
Australia yaboyazza 
I don't think they'd win, but they may as well get some international experience and earn some money than play in a qualifier with no hope of winning.

I know :( They have been looking lost and glow has been playing some of his worst CS ever. They could have fielded such a better team since Solo's South Korean team seems to have never taken off. Still hopeful though that Glow and Termi can right the ship.
