SK Gaming and Team X will no longer be able to compete in ELEAGUE Season 1 due to being disqualified
The Brazilian team had earned their spot in the quarter-finals after winning Group A, while Luminosity were ready to compete in the last-chance bracket after placing second in Group C of Eleague.According to the Min-Sik Ko, the tournament’s commissioner, the Brazilian players’ recent move to SK from Luminosity Gaming is in direct violation of the league’s results. The rule is in place to prevent rosters from changing, and organizations being able to acquire the teams mid season.
Luminosity & SK Gaming are no longer eligible to compete in our first season due to roster changes that do not comply with @EL rules
