Valve disqualifies former paiN X team from the Chongqing Major's South America qualifier

Valve has disqualified the winners of the Chongqing Major's South America qualifier, test 123 (formerly paiN X), from attending the Major, the developer announced on Wednesday.

The roster, which is made up of three North American players and two from South America, traveled to the region to play in the qualifiers and returned back to North America instead of staying in the region.

According to Valve, the team contacted the developer several months ago to find out if such travel would be against the rules. The developer claims to have told them that doing so would result in their not being recognized as "an actual South American team," given that a "team temporarily traveling to and from a region just to compete in the qualifiers clearly does not provide any meaningful benefit to the region."

Fnatic brings on Nemesis to replace Caps

Tim “Nemesis” Lipovšek has signed on as Fnatic's new midlaner, the organization announced on Thursday.

Nemesis' arrival comes in the wake of Rasmus "Caps" Winther's recent departure. Fnatic made it to Worlds 2018 Grand Finals, losing to Invictus Gaming 3-0.

Wadid signs on as Rogue's starting support

Kim "Wadid" Bae-in has signed on as the starting support for Rogue, one of the newcomers to the now fully franchised League of Legends European Championship, the organization announced on Thursday.

Wadid was previously the support for G2 Esports, with whom he finished 3-4th at the 2018 World Championship.
