Mousesports to replace Fnatic following EPICENTER fallout

The Swedish organisation has announced today that Fnatic’s CS: GO team will not appear on the EPICENTER which will take part from 17-22 December.

Because of their busy schedule, they withdraw from the market. This weekend, Fnatic will play eight ECS finals in Dallas and go to Odense, Denmark for the ESL Pro League 10 finals from December 3 to 8. Fnatic will be in the ESL Pro League. Only one week would the Swedes rest and prepare themselves to visit Moscow and play on EPICENTER.

“It means that we’ll be taking an extended break with our teams, following our visits to the ECS season in the United States and to the ESL Pro League in the ten finals in Denmark.”

EPICENTER acted rapidly and announced that moussports would play Fnatic because they were the European qualifications’ finalists. While Fnatic is among the world’s top teams, mouse sports are a solid top ten team that won last weekend in Shanghai the CS: GO Asia Championships.

Counter-Strike players have an ambitious season-wide agenda and this year Fnatic is not the first to pull their teams out of a tournament. Their jam-packed calendar made Team Liquid not participating in IEM Beijing this month.

EPICENTER is now going to feature Evil Geniuses, Natus Vincere, AVANGAR, Vitality, Heroes, ZE and EHOME. This month you will be competing for a prize pool of $500,000.
