The tournament organizers revealed that Luminosity will miss the $100,000 event.
The problem emerged because two Luminosity players had a problem with Canada Customs and the squad was left with only three players.
LG dropped out of the event because finding two stand-ins they were familiar with in such an extremely small amount of time wouldn’t be possible. If they made it to Toronto without any issues, The Brazilians were going to compete in Group B against TSM,OpTic, and Echo Fox.
