London based esports organization Fnatic has dropped out of EPICENTER 2019 to give its players an extended break.
Fnatic has a pretty busy schedule with the ECS Season 8 Finals this weekend in Dallas and ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals following from December 3-8. Attending EPICENTER would mean they only have a week between it and ESL Pro League.
Following Fnatic’s announcement, EPICENTER quickly replaced them with mousesports. The latter earned the honor by being the finalists from the European qualifiers. mousesports is also ranked among the top 10 squads and recently won the CS:GO Asia Championships in Shanghai.
The season is packed full of events with other teams faced with a similar dilemma. For example, Team Liquid forfeited its spot in IEM Beijing for the same reasons.
The EPICENTER 2019 lineup now looks like this :
EPICENTER 2019 will take place from December 17-22 at Crocus Expo Hall, Moscow. Eight teams will fight for a piece of the $500,000 prize pool.
