Although the European qualifier for the WCA 2017 World Championship is coming to an end, it has faced an unexpected big change, leading to the departure of a famous French team.
Na`Vi will take the French team’s spot in the quarter-finals, in which they will take on Space Soldiers, with 1337HUANIA’s Nikolaj “kalinka” Rysakov due to fill in for the Ukrainian team, who have been depleted to a four-man roster since Denis“seized” Kostin stepped down from the active roster.
Should Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko’s men beat Space Soldiers on Wednesday, they will face Heroic in the semi-finals, with the winner of that clash automatically qualifying for the WCA 2017 Finals.
Gambit have already booked their spot at the WCA 2017 Finals after beating BIG in the first semi-final. The two finalists and the winner of a third-place decider match will all qualify for the main WCA event, which will run from December 17-22 in Yinchuan, China.
