Three teams have withdrawn their names just days before the ESL One NY 2017 was set to start. The three teams in focus here are Immortals, Optic and Misfits. The reasons for their inability to attend range from missing flights to unfinished rosters.
ESL NY – Update.
— Immortals (@Immortals) August 18, 2017
Immortals were unable to board their flight to the tournament and hence will be replaced by Tempo Storm. This comes as a slight problem to the organiser but their promptness in finding replacement teams has been commendable.
Immortals has pulled out ESL NY to our great regret. Unfortunately, #IMTCSGO ‘s flights were delayed due to visa issues, and we are unable to make the qualifier on time. We apologize to our fans and wish the best of luck to Tempo Storm , our replacement.
The above mentioned three teams will be replaced by Tempo Storm, Rise Nation and L4ORG.
