New England Whalers replace FURIA in IEM Beijing-Haidian

The Brazilian squad has decided to skip ESL's event in favor of staying in Europe, with the team ranked #27 in the world taking their spot.

New England Whalers have been added to the IEM Beijing-Haidian 2020 North America team list after FURIA decided to not participate in the tournament.

In the official announcement, it is explained that "due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions" FURIA decided against returning from their European bootcamp to compete in the online tournament scheduled for November 6-22.

VINI's team has decided to extend their stay in Europe

After winning IEM New York North America and qualifying for the IEM Global Challenge LAN in December, the Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan-led lineup arrived in Serbia for a bootcamp on Monday and will be taking part in BLAST Premier Fall, where they are placed in Group C.

Another North America-based team competing in BLAST currently is Evil Geniuses. Unlike FURIA, Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz and co. are seemingly set to return home to compete in IEM Beijing-Haidian, where they could earn their IEM Global Challenge spot.

FURIA pulling out of IEM Beijing-Haidian opened a slot in the event for New England Whalers, who have recently impressed in IEM New York by finishing sixth, and are sitting on a flawless 13-0 record in ESEA MDL Season 35.

The team list for IEM Beijing-Haidian North America is now as follows:

They were humiliated by Whalers in the last game so they had to relinquish their spot to them.

It was a 200 iq move, that way Liquid got placed in quarters and they eliminated them thus Liquid got less RMR points

This will be a great event because we will get an idea of how these 7 maybe 6 (if Yeah qualifies) non-Brazilian North American teams play together, which gives us a good picture of this so called "dead scene" We get to see the real rosters of Chaos, New England Whalers and Triumph, which had to use stand-ins at IEM New York, which will play officials against top dogs Evil Geniuses and Liquid, with both having played these lesser teams at New York and scrims which means whoever wins will truly be the victor as lame excuses such as muh never played em' before are irrelevant which you see a lot of proven teams say in upsets Plus we could see Rugratz, a team with potential with their newest IGL Infinite make it through qualifiers as well as Yeah with their two newest Americans Swisher and bew!
