ALTERNATE to Kiev without KenaN
The new ALTERNATE lineup will not have its debut in Kiev after all, as Kenyon "KenaN" Temmel will miss the event due to school commitments.
The German team, who last week announced their 2011 lineup, made their way to the IEM5 European Championship Finals following a 2-0 victory against .no in the relegation stage.
The team will however not have the chance to show off their 2011 lineup. Kenyon "KenaN" Temmel is forced to miss the first major of 2011, in order to finish important educational tests of his.
According to SK Gaming, Temmel stated it will be either Jan "mooN" Stolle or Roman "Roman R." Reinhardt who will act as stand-in for the event.
Confirmed ALTERNATE members for the event are:
David "CHEF-KOCH" Nagel
Direnc "seraph" Öz
Christian "ChRRRRp" Porten
Christian "crisby" Schmitt
ALTERNATE was drawn into Group B, facing off against Natus Vincere, fnatic, Lions, Cph Wolves and the team replacing Danish-side Full-Gaming who pulled out of the competition last week.
