SK to use dennis at IEM5 World C'ship
SK Gaming have been forced to call in a stand-in for the IEM5 World Championship – Dennis "dennis" Edman will fill in for Jimmy "allen" Allen, who is too ill to attend the event.
A clear shocker less than two weeks before the action kicks off in Hannover, SK Gaming have announced that Jimmy "allen" Allen is very ill and is unable to attend the event with his team. This means that the team will be using a stand-in for the event.
SK Gaming will use Dennis "dennis" Edman, who was last seen in action playing for the Swedish team RAGE.
"Hello! I've been given a great opportunity to play as standin for SK Gaming due to allen being unable to attend the Global Finals at Cebit. This is probably my biggest event I have ever played in and I must say being asked to play for one of the best teams out there is a real honour for me. I will do my absolute best to substitute allen and I hope that all of you out there will help me do so!!!" – Said Edman on SK's website.
dennis in for allen at the IEM5 World Championship
This means that SK Gaming for the IEM5 World Championship will play with the following lineup:
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Johan "face" Klasson
Dennis "dennis" Edman
The Swedes are playing in the so called "Group of Death" and this sudden shocker seems to only make their chances of advancing worse. How SK Gaming will do in Group B at the IEM5 World Championship will be known on March 1, where they will play all of their group-stage matches.
