MIBR and Hard Legion have been replaced in the IEM New York lineups due to their Regional Major Rankings points being reset. This reset came following the news that both teams’ coaches had utilized a spectating bug exploit.
Both teams have since removed the coaches but the effects on the teams points remain. This has led to Chaos taking the spot of MIBR in the North American edition of IEM New York as the next time in line in terms of RMR points in the region. Hard Legion is set to be replaced by the winner of the match between Invictus Int and HellRaisers.
IEM New York North America will take place from October 6th to 18th while the CIS event will run from October 13th to 25th with a total of $110,000. In addition to the prize money, the winner of the North American iteration will have earned a place at the $500,000 IEM Global Challenge.
IEM New York North America & CIS team lists:
|Evil Geniuses||100 Thieves|
|New England Whalers||TBD|
|Natus Vincere||Gambit Youngsters|
